    I make "best of" CD's for the car. I compress the songs, (just a little; not the dreaded "wall of sound,") and I boost kick drum and bass, because it just sounds better when I do, and sometimes I edit really long songs, especially live versions.

    I am trying to make a definitive Deep Purple CD. It can only be 1.2 hours long, because that's all a disc will hold, and I don't want to do a double disc.

    Already this thread has helped!

    What does anyone think of any live versions of "wring that neck?"

    michaelandrew The bass player is always right.

    It's nice to see some early Purple on the list - especially "Why Didn't Rosemary?" and "Hush" - I'll add "Kentucky Woman" to that list (IMO THE Classic Rock Hammond organ solo by the late, great, Jon Lord).

    Personal Favourite: "Lazy"

    Maybe I'm A Leo is one our band has been playing, the breaks are tricky when someone misses, can really ruin the vibe...
