Format: Audio CD
Deep Purple were (are) a band that had talent to burn and over their career several members were consummed in that fire, Tommy Bolin being the most serious casualty. If you're looking at this product then you're probably already familiar with the DP story but for the unitiated the original guitarist (Blackmore) quit the band in '75 (to form Rainbow)and it seemed that was the end but the two newer recruits Coverdale and Hughes weren't ready just yet to walk off the (stadium) stage and a new axe hero was recruited the very talented Tommy Bolin late of the James Gang and just starting on a solo career.
Enough of the history lesson let's look at the "album". The CD is basically the rehearsal / audition of Bolin with his new band mates, there are jams, embryonic songs, and general messing about musically seeing how it might fit together; judging from what is presented it seems that the band were enjoying themselves and there is a lot of promise on show here.
So should you buy it?
Well that depends. If you're looking for a good heavy rock CD to play in the car or sing along with or a Deep Purple album that is representative of their output, then the answer is probably "no" - there are more suitable alternatives to satisfy those needs.
However if you are a DP Mk4 fan, a Tommy Bolin fan, or just interested in the history of what might have been in the Deep Purple story had Bolin not sucumbed to his addictions then the answer is definitely "yes".

HASH(0x97209bec) out of 5 stars MK IV Warm up jam session 13 May 2010
By Josef Lanza - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A great listen if you are a die-hard Tommy Bolin fan; especially if you appreciate his brave, no apology style and phrasing. Funk,R'n'B,Soul,and Blues -can our boy play the blues! Check out Track 5, disc one.
This is what's on the menu here. It's cool to hear Purple coming from this direction!
Josef Lanza

P.S. I'm a professional musician that likes taking risks and approach so maybe I like it that much more!

HASH(0x97253b28) out of 5 stars Nice MK IV Companion Piece 22 Dec. 2009
By V. G. Wilson - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Semi-official 1975 bootleg recording of loose studio rehearsal jams from Deep Purple Mk IV (i.e. Tommy Bolin on lead guitar rather than Ritchie Blackmore). I hadn't known of these recordings, but the liner notes indicate this 2 disc set was released as 2 separate CD's back in 2000 and, again from the liner notes, it contains the same tracks.

The notes also indicate no sound improvement techniques were employed, but that's not an issue, as the sound quality is quite good. The only caveat is some nasty tape skips/fades/garbles here and there, which, while irritating, are few in number.

These tracks date from the earliest days of this line-up, before the recording sessions for their only studio album, Come Taste the Band. I won't go through a track-by-track review here, but suffice to say there's some tasty playing on a number of these tracks, particularly on Disc I beginning with "Dance to the Rock & Roll", a particularly intense number. Tommy plays good to great on these tracks, and David Coveradale's vocals come across with an immediacy that rarely made it to record in the DP days, particularly on the "Drifter" takes. John Lord throws in a nice Spanish classical motif on "The Orange Juice Song" (the same used by Miles Davis on Sketches of Spain, "Concerto de Aranjuez", thus the "Orange" play on names, very cool).

This is the least documented line-up of DP (with the exception of the Joe Lynn Turner line-up in the late 80's), with only (to my knowledge) one studio and 2 live recordings, so, while a little pricey, it's worth getting if you're a hard core Purple and/or Bolin fan (you know you want it)! Not likely to see any more recordings from this line up.

HASH(0x96fbe750) out of 5 stars Tommy Bolin! 21 Feb. 2013
By frank - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is just a great album to put on and chill to. Not your standard studio album, but a series of the tape rolling as DP rehearsed for the first time with Tommy Bolin during the recording of the Come Taste The Band album. Fantastic guitar playing through out highlights this album. A must buy for any Tommy Bolin fan
