47 songs and not a single entry for "Blind. " A pretty damn good song from one of their most underrated albums. Come on, peeps!

24 Son of Alerik

One of the most awesome hidden tracks in history. I've heard this song back when I was a little child, early steps into music. Blew my mind. 10 minutes of total epic music travel through space with a smile on your face.

Awesome instrumental. Ritchie Blackmore did great in this song. - zxm

I remember this song was newly added. And it came on 22. - zxm

Such a beautiful, masterful song, like the previous commenter said, 10 minutes of a awesomness.

25 Hey Joe

It amazes me that this was not even on the list. Best song on their first album alongside hush. The 7 min version is the best cover (acc. to me), the starting is just majestic and Rod Evans as always kicks ass. Come on this should be at least in top 20.

Leaves did it first; Hendrix did it best

26 Hungry Daze

Deep Purple are again one step ahead - besides its awesome melody and riff, this song has some elements of symphonic (power) metal. Go beat Ritchie Blackmore when speaking of metal invention, and respectively - metal subgenres.

And Gillan even growls towards the end - it's so metal. - Metal_Treasure

27 Hallelujah
28 You Fool No One

From The Made in Europe album, another one of Ritchie's great solos, that he plays with feeling and passion. Probably his best but then the song kinda tanks with the beginning of the drum solo.

Used to play this on guitar all the time, quite tricky to master too. Heavy and funky in that unique purple way. Gillian is unbelievable.

I have somehow never heard this song until recently. Now I cannot get it out of my head.

31 Anya

Ritchie still had what it takes with one of his best solos ever. Then Deep Purple gave him the boot for his child outburst on stage, shortly after.
