"Knocking at Your Back Door: The Best of Deep Purple in the 80's" is a compilation album by the British hard rock band Deep Purple. It is a compilation of tracks from three albums, Perfect Strangers (1984), The House of Blue Light (1987), and the live album Nobody's Perfect (1988). This best-of of eighties Deep Purple marks the return of the Mark II line-up, and what a return! Although purists will disagree with compilations such as this, it has to be said that weeding out the dross makes this a stunning disc. From the sheer exuberance of the title track, to the monumental re-working of 'Hush,' there is very little to dislike here.

Although it shook the band's fan base to its core, the acrimonious departure of vocalist Ian Gillan and bassist Roger Glover served to rejuvenate Deep Purple in time for 1973's aptly named Burn album, which unquestionably showed huge improvement over their lackluster previous effort, Who Do We Think We Are. And in an interesting twist rarely attempted before or since, new recruits David Coverdale (vocals) and Glenn Hughes (bass and vocals, ex-Trapeze) traded lead singing duties on virtually every one of its songs – an enviable tag team, as both possessed exceptional pipes…
