Deep Purple: “Anthem” (1968)

From their 1968 sophomore LP The Book of Taliesyn. On later albums Ritchie Blackmore and company would certainly rock harder. But they were arguably most interesting in their progressive rock infancy, as this track attests.

To any fan of classic-era Moody Blues, this one will sound like musical comfort food.
