Icon27 Come Taste The Band

Hello ,

in the last time you can read and hear much more in the music magazines about a very important Deep Purple album named Come Taste The Band.

It was for me personelly in 1975 not to understand why the album wasn't able to have great sucess. For me it was a real Deep Purple album and i tell you why. Deep Purple stood always for a dramatic way to produce rockmusic. "In Rock" was the first album in this period. It was high dramatic and played and sung on a very high level from each musician.

It was playing music like it would be the last day of your life, no space for any fake and lie. It felt real honest but complex.

The next Purple album on this high level for me was Burn. The song is one of my favorite songs. It is a baroque outstanding work with wonderful vocals and high energy solo parts plus classical music style which is not a chosen gag, because its written absolutly organic. (puhh...my english) Stormbringer the song was like burn a strong number, perhaps the other tracks on Stormbringer were fantastic in their own new way. But i think it was dramatic music too, although i know some people don't mind so.

And than came CTTB and showed in a very strong and funky way how things can happen with a new guitar player like Tommy Bolin was.

I always loved Blackmores guitar playing but now i loved Bolins guitar too.

There were too much changes i guess for the band first and for the fans second. But CTTB is percussive sounding Rocktheatre with wonderful vocals, again high energy groove and last but not least outstanding solo parts from Bolin and Lord. For me it is today brandnew music, modern rockmusic, like it was written 2009, but we all know it was from 1975.

I would love to hear something like that produced in our days from Deep Purple members.

The only works in this way i know are the solo albums of Glenn Hughes.

I think the magic thing of Purple was always to cook things together that wasn't together before. Like first Blues and Rockn'Roll with classical elements later with funk elements. And that was the achievement of Glenn Hughes, who cooked Stevie Wonders strong voice and songs together with british hardrock. And its rockin' and funkin'all the time...

So..keep on moving!
