Day 118

Deep Purple- Come Taste The Band

This is not a very memorable album. "Comin' Home" and "Drifter" were cool tunes, but that's about it. I do like Jon Lord's organ work. It carries the record. And Tommy Bolin is shredding. But other than that, the songs are pretty run of the mill.

By this point in my Deep Purple collection and their career I guess, you got to wonder why they still called themselves Deep Purple without Ian Gillan, Ritchie Blackmore, and Roger Glover. And that's not a knock against David Coverdale, Tommy Bolin, and Glenn Hughes. No surprise that they broke up after this record. Although I guess it's possible they would have kept going had Tommy Bolin not died. If you've been following his blog, you should know that I do dig me some Tommy Bolin.
