Personally, I found this a more satisfying listen than `Foxbat'. The vocals aren't quite on the ball, but that seems to be an unavoidable hazard with DP Mark 3 & 4. This has the advantage of more, and at times better, material - `Wild Dogs', `I Need Love' `You Keep On Moving' and the too-short `Soldier of Fortune' - superior sound mixing, exceptional playing from Lord and Paice...and as for Bolin, well, the arm injury may have debilitated him on the opening night, but on this show he was (more or less) back to burning the varnish off the fretboard.
Compare these versions of `Getting Tighter', `Lazy' and even `This Time Around' to their Foxbat counterparts and I'm sure you'll prefer the Japanese takes.
In fact, apart from the `Highway Star' encore being a bit of a mess, as usual, the worst thing about the disc is the between-song announcements, most of which are fortunately hidden in the minus-numbers. They're all exactly the same: an quick round of "everybody say AAOW!" followed by "'ere's a song for yer...it's a rock 'n roll song". Er, yeah, we've noticed that!

I'm wrtitng this as someone who loves the Come Taste the Band so please be assured that I'm not anti DP mark 4 in any way. This is a really poor album. it's basically a longer version of the Last Concert In Japan album that came out in the late 70s. They've remixed it slightly so it doesn't sound quite as bad but it's still pretty awful. Bolin's guitar playing is dreadful - drugs induced or not, Hughes' between song banter is cringe inducing. Coverdale puts in a good shift but why oh why does he have to share singing duties with the frankly annoying Hughes (I dont know if it was his cocaine addiction but he just comes across like a moron on this and on the Mark 3 Live in Paris set). Ian Paice's drumming is awesome as usual and Lord's playing is top notch but the whole Bolin/Hughes thing is a disaster.

Some 16 yrs after buying the disappointing LCIJ, to be able to add this 2 hour+ gem to my collection is beyond words. Being a huge fan of mk4 since first hearing CTTB, the only previous live offering left a lot to be desired, but this will go a long way to setting the record straighter.
Despite the well documented reasons, Tommy's playing at times blows anything RB did well into the shadows, with his 7 minute solo nothing short of breath-taking! And with Ian and Jon pulling the whole business together with some Hurculean playing, yet again the listener is left wondering, "What if........."
The comprehensively written booklet makes for the usual compelling read, and yet again congratulations must go to the team at DTB for continuing to unearth classic Purple material, and let's just hope that one day the visual footage is also discovered. An excellent companion to "Foxbat" and the "Days May Come...." cd's, a must for all fans of Tommy and mk4 Purple!

With quite a bit of MKIV activity at the moment ('Come Taste The Band' remaster, followed by the story of MKIV DVD due early next year) I thought it was a good time to review this album, and to try and balance some of the unfair criticism of it.
Firstly, I need to make clear where I stand when it comes to DP line-ups, because your preference will influence your take on it. I have a casual 'compilation-style' interest in MKII (not really a Gillan fan), but for me things really got interesting with MKIII, when Coverdale and Hughes joined. When Blackmore departed in April 75, things happened amazingly quickly in the world of DP. A mere 4 months later, Tommy Bolin had been recruited and 'CTTB' had started to be recorded. I absolutely love 'CTTB', for me it's the best album to carry the DP name, and that's really why I like this album, as it features no less than 8 tracks from 'CTTB', some of them longer than their studio counterparts, especially the Funk/Rock workout 'Gettin Tighter' which clocks in at some 16 minutes, but is never anythig less than essential, and I have to confess here, I'm a huge Glenn Hughes fan. Other highlights are a terrific run-through of 'Love Child' and Bolins' own 'Wild Dogs' with Hughes on backing vocals. It is true that Tommy does take a back-seat on some of the other material, especially 'Burn', but you have to consider, what exactly do you expect from a MKIV show? At the end of the day, this is not a Blackmore-style concert, it does not have his dicipline, so it's going to have a looser feel to it, and let's not forget, Bolin was a completely different kind of guitarist, so it's not really surprising it's on the 'CTTB' material that he's at his most comfortable.

This gig was originally released in Japan in 1977 as the "Last Concert in Japan". It suffered from poor editing & sound. Now it has been given a full make-over with the audio being digitally re-mixed and the other half of the set restored, making it the complete gig. Indeed there is a substantial improvement in clarity on playing the discs however, the quality of the performance remains the same.
Anyone who knows the history of Tommy Bolin's lifestyle in this period of time will be aware that most of his performances were lacklustre- and this one is no exception, so don't expect a 'Blackmore' standard performance as Bolin plays the bare minimum required especially on Purples back catologue. However he seems more assured playing the "Come Taste" material. Glenn Hughes is also treading water with a coke habit which seems to manifest on stage by generally over playing his role and in particular, his shrieking does threaten to spoil some of the numbers. Its a good job that Purple have a couple of experienced heads in the form of Lord & Paice to keep the ship afloat in the time of need, both of whom you hear plenty of and in good form.
Jon performs a good solo, leading into a pleasant ad-lib of Woman from Tokyo (the original Smoke edit) which, given where they were, should have really been performed in full. It should be no suprise some fans felt short changed at the mk 4 shows as Bolin seems to 'hand over' some of the main solos for Lord while Bolin plays the backing track, this is evident on Burn. Also Lazy, where there is an awkward moment when he forgets the riff where, at this level, isn't really acceptable.
On the positive side Bolin doesn't make any more major clangers & puts in an exellent show with his own track, Wild Dogs, which features a slide solo & various flange effects. Overall, this is well produced and although Bolin is sometimes in and out of the mix, its a vast improvement on the previous offering.
