Icon34 Favourite Deep Purple line-up

What are your favourite line-ups of Deep Purple ? I like the Mark 3 and 4 line-ups with David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes in the band.

Icon37 The best Deep Purple lineup...

...was MK IV no doubt about it!


And that's a fact - not an opinion!

Probably Mk 3... Burn is my fav DP album and I listen to the Hughes/Coverdale stuff more than the MK 2 stuff now, I think I may have heard the MK 2 songs too many times!

You're right,Beese. The radio stations seems to be playing "Smoke on the Water" more than anything else the band had ever released.

MK III line-up is my favorite without a doubt

Wanted the MK IV band to be my favorite, but Tommy's addiction got the best of him throughout most of his time with DP. It was a brilliant album though.

But I have to admit that I have a soft spot for MK II...especially the "Who Do We Think We Are" album. "Woman From Tokyo" and "Rat Bat Blue" still tear me up

I love any DP lineup before 1995, but

MK III & MK IV are the best!

Since Deep Purple started for me, with the televised broadcast of California Jam,
I always thought that the MK3 line up WAS "the classic line up." (Actually, I still do.)
Plus.....I had no clue what the names of the DP players were.

And when I heard the news that the "strange" guitarist
(who had beat up the TV camera with his guitar)
had been replaced by a more normal person, that was OK with me...........

Yep, any line up with:

HUGHES and COVERDALE.
(The Purple Boys.)

I love Glenn so much,a great man,as far as David is concerned,too bad that he spent his life trying to be Robert Plant,it's well worth trying,but...he won't be.

For me it has to be........ Mk3.....(ryme not intended !!!!)

Reason:Brilliant Vocals and how they were arranged giving the songs extra interest.

I know this applies to Mk4 but there's no Blackmore!(tee hee)....sorry.... for some reason i tried my hand at poetry last night


Cheers...

Mark II is certainly considered as the best one because they invented something unique . But Mark III was also inventive especially on Burn and Stormbringer albums . About live albums , I surely like Made in Japan but I also enjoy Live in Paris 1975 because it was recorded at home . A friend attended that historic concert .

For me Mk3 is the best. I think that the voices of Glenn and David match perfectly, so I listen to Cal Jam '74 again and again, I'll never grow tired of it!

For my $, CTTB was DP's most interesting effort...I think David was at his peak vocally, and what can you say that hasn't been said about Tommy? He was such an innovative player who just had such a great imagination in the way he approached guitar...He and Glenn were so locked in musically that it was sick..They were truly twin sons of different mothers...

Totally agree here. Not many bands could compete with this line-up at that time. Cal Jam '74 gives testimony to that

I agree with arjen and supermanza

i m a mark 3 head i also like mark 4

but i can't deny the fact that mark 2 is a big influence and i liked them before discovering any other lineup

in my opinion

every mark is a very good one in its own right really

but still mark 3 is the closer to my heart

NO MK 3 NO CALIFORNIA JAM AND I DO LIKE THIS CONCERT ..................TOO MUCH

hughes/thrall_rulez's Sig:
From now on....

"Burn" always was my favourite DP album. So, there was no better for me than Mk III and Mk IV. Also I liked Mk V, especially songs like Slow Down Sister and Wicked Ways.
