8-Track Review - The Very Best Of Deep Purple
This is Dan. This is the first in a series of reviews I plan on doing on different carts as I listen to them. Lets start off with "The Very Best Of Deep Purple"
Cart: GRT Module 8
Program 1 - Hush, Hey Joe, We Can Work It Out
Program 2 - River Deep - Mountain High
Program 3 - April, Exposition
Track 4 - Kentucky Woman, Bird Has Flown, Lalena
I found myself enjoying only about half of the songs on this cart. "River Deep - Mountain High" and "Kentucky Woman" are the highlights. "Hush" and "hey Joe" are OK, but not in the same class. Overall the cart sounds great, and there is no track splitting.
Keeper?: - for now. I think there is a later Deep Purple greatest hits around here somewhere that includes their "Smoke On The Water" stuff. Still...I really like their version on a Neil Diamond song on this album.
Number of Ka-chunks?: Only two out of four.
