Nick Bell


 I'd like to offer a belated "Thank you, Nick", for your role in bringing Tommy Bolin + Deep Purple together in the summer of 1975. Granted, it took me close to 30 years to fully appreciate the only studio album they did together - but better late than never, right!
 Again, thanks, Nick!

Re: Nick Bell


You're really beginning to dig this album, huh?

I admire the fact that you are man enough to admit it, after years of bantering and arguing over it on this forum and the last one.

Now, time to put that old copy of Slaves & Masters on the stereo! emoticon

It's a gem! A forgotten classic! A masterpiece of innovative rock! emoticon

Re: Nick Bell


Mred,

You mean you actually liked CTTB album.... Wow, weird it is with all the postings over the years. Like Yodi teaching Luke. Luv the opener that Ian and Tommy cowrote. Coming Home.

You're not alone within the professional community -- both Rob Corich and Dougie White, both liked CTTB alot and both liked Tommy's playing in England, despite all the hecklers in England. Dougie saw him play in Glasgow, and commented that Bolin really had a presence onstage with DP, even though the Glasglow audience heckled him in a very obtuse manner. I was very surprised at Dougie White's comments on the DVD: 1974 -- 1976 which features a review of MKIII and MKIV -- Burn, Stormbringer and CTTB. Rock Producers Corich's comments echoed the same observations of Bolin in DP in England and his work on CTTB. (I'm sure Geoff Barton of Classic Rock would strongly disagree about Bolin England. Although did give a positive review of Bolin with DP in Houston, Texas before the Englad tour. (Barton used to hang out at the DP Newsgroup and he had corresponded with me several times about Tommy and his trouble in the band playing in England with DP.
