Notes:
First released in UK in February 1985 on EMI/Harvest PUR-1(EN-15-5360-3) as 2 LP in black or purple vinyl and as 2 MC PUR-1 (EN-26-0612-3), in France in July 1985 on EMI/Harvest 50999-1553603 [2LP] and in Holland 1985 on EMI/Harvest 1a164-260612-3 [2LP].
There is no official CD release of this material ever published.

Simon Robinson of the DPAS (Deep Purple Appreciation Society) was discontent with this release, since it contained some previously unreleased material (tracks like "Grabsplatter") aimed at collectors (and thereby forcing die-hards to buy an otherwise useless album.
Consequently, he persuaded EMI to do a new version aimed strictly at new fans. The new version was released in 1991 as "The Deep Purple Anthology".
