Unofficial Release! Why have not you blocked?
Tetragrammaton Records went bankrupt in 1969.

Ugh, in the early 1990's this seemed like the only way to obtain Deep Purple MK I on CD or cassette and were usually mastered from old Tetragrammaton LPs and utilizing a very primitive form of noise reduction. Two different versions of the Creative Sounds releases were usually available, ones made in the US, which were horrific and then ones made in Holland which were slightly better, but still from a vinyl source (usually made in Holland versions did not have as much noise reduction). I am hoping most of these are in the landfill by now since better versions are now available.

Still have it, and am playing it now. It's well pressed, and sounds excellent!

LOVELY PRESSING! VIRGIN VINYL. RECOMMENDED. VERY GOOD MASTERING AND NICE COVER. However it does not have the last few seconds on it (footsteps etc.), that is a shame !!!

Remaster is very compressed - I DO NOT RECOMMEND! Good sound has the Andy Pearce remaster 2014.

Anybody know why this is ¥300 more expensive than the 1973/¥2000 pressing?

Going into this album, anything I knew of Deep Purple's music was centered around all the hits they released during their MKII and MKIII eras. Meaning, of course, I knew 'Highway Star', 'Smoke on the Water', 'Burn', and all the other classics that are featured on countless compilations that all have the exact same tracklist. So I was intrigued to get started from the beginning. To head back to 1968 and check out the album that kicked off the career of one of rock music's most legendary bands.

"Meh".

Compared to the material the band would later release, this album is pretty boring, with no sense of identity. It just completely lacks that instantly recognizable Deep Purple vibe. It sounds like any generic rock album from the late 60's. It's not terrible. There's a few catchy hooks here-and-there, but the album as a whole just doesn't do anything for me. It's no wonder these songs are usually neglected from all the compilations. In fact, the only song that really even gets any recognition these days is their cover of Billy Joe Royal's 'Hush'. It says a lot about a bands material when the best song on the record is a cover.

So yeah, that's Deep Purple's debut. It was probably an incredible, ground-breaking game-changer in 1968. But this isn't 1968, and these songs have not aged well at all. I'll give it two stars because it's not awful, it's just not really very good, either.

Simple question. How can you tell this is an unofficial release?

Is this an official Issue?!? - the Print is rubbed off.
I just got aware of the following which seemingly is the same?

This pressing doesn't have the original outro after "Hey Joe" (footsteps and closing door).
