Ian, I gave away all my old vinyls. From memory, Lazy was great, the middle part of Space Truckin' was very cool. Smoke, of course, is a classic. But really, just having Ian Paice playing means there will always be something enjoyable to listen to (Ian was my first drum hero).

Other memorable Purple moments for me were Black Night, Child in Time, Speed King, Fireball, You Fool No One, Burn and This Time / Ode to G. I think Purple's greatest moment was You Fool No One with Ian and Ritchie in full flight!

A lot of Purple fans felt that Tommy Bolin was a poor replacement for Ritchie and I guess they did lose some vibe with the switch, but I've long been a huge Tommy fan. His work on Billy Cobham's Stratus is legendary, and his solo album, Private Eyes, has some fantastic tracks, eg. Post Toastee and Busting Our for Rosie.
