"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.

This exclusive EMI Malaysia issue is probably the most complete single-disc Deep Purple compilation. It concentrates solely on their most productive and identifiable period (the late '60s through the mid-'70s) and includes 18 of their major hits and most popular tracks. Its only drawbacks are the lack of liner notes and the premature fading of two cuts, "Space Truckin'" and "Child in Time." The piano version of "Speed King" is included, but other than that, it's all album tracks.
