For Witchy!

Machine Head
Burn
Book of Taliesyn
WDWTWA
Deep Purple

Can't really place the rest in any order. The prize for the worst cover might go to HOBL though.

You're just too kind ... emoticon

So here we go:

1. DP III
2. In Rock (best "political" cover)
3. The Book Of Taliesyn (wonderful painting)
4. Wo Do We Think We Are (excellent idea)
5. House Of Blue Light (best reunion cover ever)
6. Stormbringer
7. Machine Head
8. Burn
9. Fireball
10. Come Taste The Band
11. Perfect Strangers
12. Slaves And Masters
13. The Battle Rages On
14. Shades Of DP

left out due to lack of interest: Morse era

And yes, this is an interesting poll because we haven't had it 10.000 times already.

It's hard for me to rate so many covers that are fairly lackluster. Thankfully, the music more than makes up for it in most cases. I will say that my favorite Purple album cover is without a doubt MADE IN JAPAN. This cover is what Deep Purple is all about!

I agree about the covers. For such great music, they sure didn't wrap it up very well. In Rock is superb, but the rest are not particularly good. Interesting ideas, but often poor execution, although surprisngly Abandon kinda worked for me and is probably my second fave.

If we're including live albums though, then Live in London is the band's highlight as a cover.

1. Burn (I still want those candles that are floating around online somewhere)
2. In Rock
3. Come Taste the Band (love how the back is an empty glass too)
4. Fireball
5. Who Do We Think We Are (for years, I hadn't realized their photos in the bubbles)
6. Stormbringer (I like horses ... and uni's. Besides, I have this cool Deep Purple pewter chain of the same uni, so perhaps I'm biased here)
7. House Of Blue Light (I dunno ... I have always dug the blue light, in a creepy, Nightmare On Elm Street sort of way)
8. Rapture Of the Deep (I dig the colors)

9. All others, which , IMO, are pretty nondescript. I guess if I had to pic "the worst" one, I'd go with Bananas.
