    I think this is a great album, in fact one of my favourite DP records. I'm just sad it was the only one with the Bolin/Hughes combination, as they injected a new style and interest for me. I think it stands up better today than some of the previous releases.

      Let’s be honest this isn’t Deep Purple so suffers by comparison. If the remainders of Purple had formed a group with Coverdale and Bolin under a new name and direction we could have had a great band on our hands, certainly more contemporary. Instead we got endless inferior versions of Deep Purple and Whitesnake . What more is there to say.

        Glenn Hughes and Tommy Bolin leave there own mark. Brilliant. Nuff said.

            Please, I need help!
            The German edition, 1 C 062-97 044, is the same on both sides of the Matrix / Runout Side B, on Label -1 C 062-97 044 -B, plays A and B. How is this possible? somebody has a copy?

              Yes, Ritchie Blackmore is gone: let's come to grips with that reality first, in order to review "Come Taste the Band" fairly. Tommy Bolin was a fine guitarist in his own right and musicianship isn't the problem here, anyway. Songwriting is. Remaining original members Jon Lord and Ian Paice were almost totally uninvolved in composing this material, leaving Bolin, David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes to devise a much more funk-oriented repertoire. So, while the album has some fairly strong hard rock ('Comin' Home' and 'Love Child', the latter boasting a raunchy riff that sounds like a leftover from "Deep Purple In Rock") and one bizarrely compelling item that's like nothing else in the DP catalog ('This Time Around', Lord's sole credit on the album), as a whole it just doesn't sound much like Purple. It was time to call it a day, and the band knew it.
