Rank Your Deep Purple Albums w/ Airey


I'm a huge fan of what Don brought to deep purple, especially on the ezrin albums. Let's rank the albums with his amazing playing on.

Also, any have any recommendations of non-DP albums Airey plays on?

Bananas - least favourite (still has great tracks)
Infinite - this may be second to last but I do love it!!
Whoosh! - subject to change as I've only heard twice
Rapture - really underrated once you get past the bad production sound
Now what?! - no words needed, and on this album especially Don has some truly magical moments.

Hope everyone is safe and well!

I haven't got the new one yet. Can't wait!

1. Now What
2. Banana's
3. Infinite
4. ROTD-Just listened to this a few days ago. There are some very good songs on it but the mix buries most of the "Power". Reminds me of a mono record.

2. Now What?!
3. Bananas

5. Rapture of the Deep

PURPENDICULAR still trounces all of them as far as I'm concerned, though.
