2.0 out of 5 stars Proto-Purple Aug. 19 2011
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a big fan of Shades Of, and that's not because I don't like Deep Purple Mk I. I do like Deep Purple Mk I. I think the third Purple album from '69 is one of the band's all-time best, and an underrated classic. Shades Of only scratches the surface. In 1968, these five guys didn't have the road experience together yet to really gel as a unit. Blackmore has yet to emerge as the confident axeman that he is, still shyly putting together his solos while Jon Lord takes the forefront more often than not.

"Hush" was and is still a fantastic version, and my preferred take over the 1988 Ian Gillan version. "I'm So Glad" isn't bad, but "Mandrake Root" is not what it would later become live. "Help" has been slowed down to a crawl (reportedly, the way the Beatles wanted to do it) but it doesn't rock. "Love Help Me" is poppy goodness, but "Hey Joe" is another one that would be better live.

The 5 bonus tracks are all valuable, as these are some of Purple's earliest live performances. Something like "Hey Joe" live begins to show what the band would make of it. There's also the rare track "Shadows" which is better than some of the tracks on the album itself.

2 stars. Hold tight, rock fans -- a year later, the best was yet to come!

4.0 out of 5 stars """Shades Of Deep Purple""" June 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
""Shades Of Deep Purple"", Deep Purple's first album, is a great one. It outsold the album that came after it, ""The Book Of Taliesyn"". This album was recorded with Rod Evans on Vocals, Jon Lord on Keyboards, Ritchie Blackmore on Guitars, Nicky Simper on Bass, and Ian Paice on Drums. This lineup was the greatest Deep Purple lineup of all time. "And The Address" is Blackmore/Lord, "Hush" and "Hush (Live US TV)" are South, "One More Rainy Day" is Lord/Evans, "Prelude:Happiness I'm So Glad" is Lord/Evans/Simper/Blackmore and Skip James, "Mandrake Root", "Love Help Me", and "Love Help Me (Instrumental Version)" are Blackmore/Evans, "Help" and "Help (Alternate Take)" are Lennon/McCartney", "Hey Joe" and "Hey Joe (BBC Top Gear Session)" are Roberts, and "Shadows (Album Out Take)" is Lord/Evans/Simper/Blackmore.
"And The Address" (4:38) (4/5): A trippy, psychedelic song with driving guitar and organ parts.
"Hush" (4:24) (5/5): What can one say about "Hush"? It is the best Deep Purple song of all time, the best song on this album, and the third-best Hard Rock song of all time. This is a cover of a song by Joe South. This song is where Deep Purple reached its absolute peak, proving that the Mark I Deep Purple lineup is the greatest of all Deep Purple lineups. This surpasses Joe South's version.
"One More Rainy Day" (3:39) (3/5): The second-worst song on the album. This song is a psychadelic/pop song. It's a bit slower than the first two songs on this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shades of excellence Jan. 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
Shades Of Deep Purple (1968.) Deep Purple's first album.
In 1968, a then little-known British rock band known as Deep Purple released its debut album, appropriately entitled Shades Of Deep Purple. This was released a few years before Ian Gillan and Roger Glover joined the band, and gave them their popular "classic hard rock/metal" sound. This and the two follow-up albums feature original vocalist Rod Evans, and more of a straight-up psychedelic rock sound than what you're probably used to hearing from the band. Either way, read on for my review of Shades Of Deep Purple.
The album kicks off with And The Address, an interesting little instrumental session. In this session, drums and the organ are the main instruments. Surprisingly, this works well. A good openng track. Hush was Deep Purple's first big hit (and only major hit NOT to feature Ian Gillan singing) was this, a cover of a Joe South song. Evans' vocals are top notch here, and the rest of the band plays well too. This song deserves all the credit it gets. One More Rainy Day is a bit more on the slow and melodic side than the last two tracks were. The vocals and the organ usage here are very nice. Prelude: Happiness I'm So Glad kicks off with an extended instrumental session in which the organ is the main instrument (similar to the album's opening track), and then it becomes a psychedelic rocker. Overall, a good track. Mandrake Root, a blues-based hard rocker. is the closest thing on the album to the metal sound that would make Deep Purple popular in the early seventies. ANOTHER excellent track, and a highly underrated one. Help is a cover of the Beatles song.

People need to quit trying to compare this album to Machine Head and later Deep Purple. This is vintage, progressive rock ahead of it's time for 1968. Read more
