Re: Come Taste the Band


A wonderful wonderful album. Heavy, gritty, funky, sleazy, groovy, and rockin'!

Masterful.

Re: Come Taste the Band


The really amazing thing about CTTB is that Purple were already falling apart at the seams making the [sign in to see URL] went to rehab during the sessions,and Jon is pretty well MIA for most of it,leaving the crux of it to David and [sign in to see URL] not the most united the band had been in the studio,and it still stands the test of time anyway.

Isn't it really amazing that also Bolin's soloalbums (Teaser and Privat Eyes) have stood the test of time?

What would he have achieved if he was still around?

Not trying to be funny,but can you imagine what Bolin might have done if he was sober?He did CTTB,Teaser and Private Eyes within about 18 months,including co-producing much of it and touring the world with two different [sign in to see URL] home what a waste his death was.

Re: Come Taste the Band


The album should have been titled "Come Waste The Band"

Re: Come Taste the Band


How's this for a thrashing, by Paul Wilkeson, in his enjoyable Black Sabbath book Rat Salad (2006) while discussing rock albums released in 1975: "[...] Deep Purple, minus guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, hit a new nadir with the bottom-of-the-barrel-scraping Come Taste the Band [...]."

In contrast, Wilkeson of course finds Sabbath's Sabotage, released the same year, "a great, even a classic album", but that is perfectly in line with the book's approach, which is highly personal (lifting the book above an average work on a rock band anyday).

Did he confuse CTTB with "Stormbringer"?
