    A really solid record. Hughes & Paice really tight as a rhythm section, Lord always strong, vocals great, Tommy brought new life/inspiration to them.
    But, they likely should have re-named the group. Totally different vibe, Bolin a totally different player.

    I really loved Bolin's solo records and the Zephyr stuff. When it came to The James Gang and Deep Purple, he was always "The Other Guy" filling in. Don't know if I agree that they should have changed the name though. Mark II and Mark III were not close to the same band as Mark I. It was kind of the way Deep Purple worked. Even now they only have one original member, yet are still Deep Purple. I like this record. On the other hand, I have heard some tapes of shows on this tour and some of it is just awful.

    Really like this record...great tunes.
    I remember getting this album and Tommy's first solo
    record, I think they were both released during the same
    year.
    It's a real shame what happened to Tommy.
    I think he would have had a long,successful
    career as a solo artist.

    Some really strong songs and performances. Though not up there with my fav DP output (70-73) i still enjoy spinning it.
    Cant imagine itvwas easy filling Blackmores shoes.

    Good rock record. Mediocre Deep Purple record.

    really like that album. tommy really played well and thee are a couple of songs that fit right in with the earlier Purple. sadly tommy and the rest of the band played pretty sloppy on the tour for that album and if you asked me really hurt Purple to the point where they had to break up.

    i think the live album of this, "last concert in japan" was the first dp album i bought and was bummed by it since i was looking for studio-like versions of smoke on the water and highway star that i heard a cover band play. when i found an early compilation "deepest purple" thats where i found what i was looking for and more. only later did i know that it wa not blackmore who was playing on "last concert in japan" but he was the one who played on the later Live in japan. RB didnt also play his solos note for note live
