Nobody's Perfect is a live album released in 1988 by the British rock band Deep Purple. It was recorded during the tour in support of The House of Blue Light in 1987 in Europe and the US. The outer sleeve photography was designed by Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis.
Track transitions are marked by fades. It also contains a new live in studio version of "Hush" to commemorate their 20th anniversary. "Black Night" was also re-recorded but never released. "Hard Lovin' Woman" includes parts of "Under the Gun" during Blackmore's guitar solo. "Strange Kind of Woman" includes the "Superstar" chorus from Jesus Christ Superstar. "Woman from Tokyo" changes into "Everyday" by Buddy Holly halfway through. The album represented Deep Purple's setlist at the time, which consisted much of the typical Made in Japan set, combined with newer material from the 1984 reunion album Perfect Strangers and The House of Blue Light. Songs such as "The Unwritten Law" and "Difficult to Cure" (which included an extended-riff from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, 4th Movement) were played every night on the tour, but were not included on this album. On some nights they also played "Call of the Wild" or "Mad Dog".
