very interesting post ! I'm a big Mk III and IV fan too.. for the Mk IV the problem is (also studio version) that many peope wants to heard Blackmore's Purple sound and spirit.. Tommy Bolin didn't want to be a copy of Ritchie Blackmore.. so he puts his roots and feeling on the songs which being so different..
Anyways the biggest mistake they made was to play famous Mk II songs like Highway Star, Lazy.. (Smoke is spécial case..) although to play others Mk II songs never played like Pictures or Never before or No no no (so Mk III songs).. I think it would be better than the old Mk II standards..
