Icon27 Come Taste The Band remaster

Fresh news from the dpas:

Quote:
Fans of Deep Purple's final original studio album can start to get excited. It looks as if 2010 will finally see the addition of this material to the racks in some shape or form, as the multi-tracks are now back in the UK to be gingerly opened, checked and archived. Ideally a sort of remaster / remix package along the lines of Machine Head is what we'd all like but it's early days yet, and we'll keep you informed.

Per Glenn's tweet today, Kevin SHirley is remixing the Come Taste the Band album. Hopefully its eventual release will be a remastered edition featuring both Shirley's new mix and Martin Birch's original mix. What a great album that is. Definitely a highlight to watch for in 2010!

Icon34 Bring it on!!

I can't wait to hear it!

Just moved again...back in Virginia and getting settled...have to get the Internet set up at the apartment; until then, I have Starbucks...

Kevin Shirley has done some fabulous work; witness his work on the Led Zeppelin DVD, and this should be a killer package.

As per Kevin Shirley earlier today...

Just finishing a remix of the Deep Purple album, Come Taste The Band. What a trip!! It's been such fun - started off with "The Drifter" and didn't want to stray too much from the originals, but by the end I'm pushing it, and there are some different bits and pieces all over - I'm diggin' it. Sent the mixes to both David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes, who also came up to my studio, The Cave, for a day - Coverdale: "Kick arse. KS...a veritable sonic treat..." Glenn Hughes: "Yeah baby!...sounds great...Drums are way better...sounds more cohesive...2 thumbs up..." * I was a Deep Purple fan before I was a Zeppelin fan...

I recall an early David Coverdale '78-ish interview mentioning an unissued Steely Dan influenced instrumental recorded pressumably in Munich I pressume? I am glad DC enthused about Kevin Shirley's remix so far.I hope can we extend 'Gettin' Tigher'.

There are two extra tracks from the Come Taste The Band sessions. One is a five minute jam with Paice and Bolin, the other a short three minute track.

Looking forward to hearing it! "Come Taste The Band" is a great album! Tommy Bolin did a great job on it, by far and away his finest moment!

Having in mind the release of the of 'Days May Come...' I am really curious of what can be squeezed out yet of the 'CTTB' mix. I really has to be done carefully not to damage what's already a classic. 'Days...' had some takes superior to the finished album versions of songs (imho 'Drifter' and 'Owed To 'G' are much more raw and bitting on the sessions), so I'm really curious how this turns out.

I wouldn't mind what DPAS mentioned - the two CD edition with the original mix and disc of alternate takes... possibly without fade-outs. BTW, that is what I'd like to happen to any Purple material - there is so much brillance lost in these 'to silence' sections (the most extravagant example of this is the unfaded 'Black Night' version on the anniversary edition of 'In Rock' - one of the most rousing Blackers solos ever).

Just imagine 'Comin' Home' or 'Dealer' audible to the last note - now this would be a fiesta for a Purple freak

After reading this thread again I decided to play the album today - on repeat -I almost forgot just how superb this album was (is)! Gettin' Tighter is still as sassy as it was in the 70s, and I love GH's vocals on This Time Around.

I'm seriously excited about this remix.

re: cttb remix

To say that this has been a long time coming has got to be a monumental understatement. Can't wait!

CTTB remix

...Drifter DOES need remixing!

The riff seems to be taken from a Kinks track (you really got me)

Listen to what Van Halen achieved in sonic quality a few years later.

Come Taste The Band has been confirmed as a deluxe 35th Anniversary 2CD release for late spring 2010. Disc 1 will include the remaster and possibly a couple of rare singles edits, Disc 2 will include the remixes and two unissued tracks. Limited Edition slipcase for the first print run, and a big booklet. You can pre-order now at DPAS Mailorder. No news yet on a vinyl edition.

Currently listening to Hummer by Cheap Trick on the album Special One

At first I wasn't sure what you meant but yeah you do have a point in the chorus it kind of has that G A thing like the Kinks. After 12 years of listening to this I have never thought of that, so the ripoff if there was one was stealthily done!

Bo diddley

Yeah,

and I even think You really got me is a twisted turned upside down Bo diddly rhythm/riff too, that Van Halen emphasized even more than the Kinks. Pat Travers did the same with Makin' Magic: duu duu doo doo doo....chuck-chuck
Bo Diddly of course does this: duu-kah duu-ka doo........chuck chuck.....

Wink Nick VS. Rip-Off

"Shave and a haircut...two bits"

Bo Diddley's beat as literally transcribed..I read that someplace but can't remember where.

I don't think "Drifter" is a rip of "You Really Got Me" any more than "Love Child" could be seen as a shotgun marriage of "Funk # 49" and Led Zep's "Heartbreaker".

A "nick" would be the Beatles lifting the guitar lick from Bobby Barker's record "Watch Your Step" and turning it into "I Feel Fine", something they have owned up to in interviews.

Now a rip-off....anyone here remember Robbie Dupree? You don't?? Ok, it has been a while and those of you outside the US probably never heard the record.....Around 1980 or so, he came out of nowhere with a record called "Steal Away". He gets to the chorus; "Why don't we steal away" and the keyboard player plays the lick from "What A Fool Believes" a huge hit for The Doobie Brothers a year or so earlier. Not content to stop there, he sings the bridge vocal in a dead-on ringer style of Michael McDonald.

I don't know if this is true but I heard he played a show in a club somewhere and after the show was over, walked into the dressing room to be confronted by the Doobies standing in a line with grim looks on their faces, vigourously smacking fists into open hands....OK I made that part up but you get the idea...

EVERY track...

"Come Taste The Band" has another very important distinction that sets it apart from ALL other albums in the Deep Purple catalog. It is the ONLY album from which EVERY track was performed onstage during the tour to support it...Sure, some songs were tried and dropped rather quickly while a few others didn't get played from the get go....but during the tour from 1975 to 1976 EVERY track was played on stage.

No..the performance of "Machine Head" in its entirety some 30-odd years after the fact doesn't count.

From where I am sitting that say a lot about the quality of the material....all the more reason why I can't wait for CTTB to get the million mile champagne treatment...Bring it on!!

That is a very interesting fact Bill The '76 concert I saw was mostly CTTB material. Can remember Lady Luck and Getting Tighter drawing alot of response from the audience.

Chopping and changing...

Songs like "Lady Luck", "Gettin' Tighter", "Love Child", "This Time Around" were in from the start and stayed there, I believe. "I Need Love" was played early on and soon dropped: I imagine the multiple guitar parts on the studio didn't translate to the stage. "Drifter" was played in Tokyo of course and I do remember hearing a performance of "Dealer" from the US tour. "Comin' Home" was played at the Springfield show at the very least, too bad the whole performance didn't make it to tape.

And, lest we forget....a certain song that is a favorite of a certain axe wielding denizen of the list was played in Japan...c'mon you all know the one!

Ah yes Robbie Dupree.. of course I remember that one. He was very guilty of what you describe. Agreed.

Icon34 Putting the boot in...

Considering the almost glacial pace that EMI took in preparing most of the Deep Purple remasterings..."Live In London" comes to mind, they have moved the preparation of the remastered "Come Taste The Band" is at a cracking pace. The DP site has the proposed cover art and a July release...it'll be here before we know it!

I have also browsed through the iTunes store and am amazed by how much of Tommy's stuff is available through them; all the TBA material, much of which I already have. And Glenn's catalog is well represented as well. I just moved all my CD's out of storage and was going through them in an attempt to organize them. A momentary panic set in when I was unable to locate my copy of "Play Me Out"....which, I believe, is now out of print. Before I got too crazed, I did find it....

Now..if I knew who walked with my vinyl copy of "Hughes Thrall"

Bill from what i can remember of the '76 Bloomington/Normal concert, Tommys' sound was well balanced with Glenn and Jon Lords' mix. So that helped with the missing parts. What really stuck out was Ian Paice' bass drum. I couldn't get over how loud it was P.S. still one of my favorite drummers to this day.
