posticon Mk 1 "3 for 1" box set?


So, I finally broke down and ordered the first three Deep Purple albums on CD. It looked like such a cool import box, it's called “3 for 1”. All three Evans/Simper era albums in one box set for twenty dollars, what a great deal.

I think it was that “EMI - Early Years” disc that I got earlier this year that convinced me to get all the Mk. 1 albums. The reviews for the “3 for 1” box set were just glowing. Besides, can you really call yourself a DP fan and not own these albums or at least give them a try.

Has any one else bought this collection? Are they the same discs that you can buy individually?

Hopefully, I’ve done the right thing by ordering this box set.

Well since 4 years there are now the mark one remaster CDs out. You´d probably pay about 35 dollars for them all, but each of them got a great number of bonus tracks, and I reckon the box set doesn´t have them?

I bought the Mark 1 Remasters when they came out, they are great. The music is class for most parts anyway.

Didn't the first issues of these just have the non re-mastered CD's and the later ones include the re-mastered ones?, i might be mistaken on that , its just off the top of my head without checking!

The first issue of the "3 for 1" box set was released 1995 i believe and it is three straight copies of the original albums with minature copies of the original sleeves and gatefolds with no re-mastering and no bonus tracks, so you may feel that you have been cheated a little but having said that if you did'nt have these albums in the first place you will not be sorry, i am sure that you are in for a treat.

It's the three remastered CDs.
