The CD features the original album remastered on CD 1 and the whole album remixed by Kevin Shirley (Iron Maiden production supremo) on CD 2 along with 2 previously unreleased tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Often Overlooked Album Comes to Life November 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This one deserved a sonic massage and got it! Interesting package - the first CD has a crisp remaster, the second has a remix in which the bass and drums have much more oomph and the songs go all the way til the actual end rather than fading out, so you get some extra Tommy Bolin guitar in there. That adds to the enjoyment. The 2 bonus tracks are fun also; one is a big fat crackling riff with a nice little Jon Lord keyboard solo. The other song is just Ian Paice drumming away while Tommy Bolin throws a barrage of guitar licks at him. Very free-spirited and a taste of what should have been had this line-up lasted....

5.0 out of 5 stars Come Taste The Band, all over again! December 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Talk about your "sleepers"! It's almost taken 35 years for this Deep Purple release to find it's share of mass acceptance, however the 35th Anniversary Edition of "Come Taste The Band" shows that Purple was indeed alive and well following Ritchie Blackmore's 1975 departure. Replacement guitarist, the talented yet tragic Tommy Bolin, pretty much established a "Ritchie WHO?" attitude from the opening Echoplex blast on "Comin' Home", to the last fading solo notes of "You Keep On Moving".

Bolin's whiplash lasso funk chops on "Getting' Tighter" create an infectious swagger, but his lead guitar improvisations that conclude the song are flat out mind boggling. Obviously this release is a must-have for Bolin fanatics, but really it needs a second chance for long time steadfast Deep Purple and Whitesnake fans as well. Vocalist David Coverdale and drummer Ian Paice are at the top of their game, and even while Glenn Hughes and Bolin were both in a pattern of serious drug usage, the recorded tracks on "Come Taste The Band" are all unquestionably brilliant.

Of particular note here is the second CD featuring the entire album remixed and re-sequenced by Kevin Shirley, who also recently worked with Glenn Hughes and Joe Bonamassa on their Black Country Communion project. Shirley's new mix brings every last detail and nuance of the "Come Taste The Band" sessions to the surface, and the presence of additional and alternate tracks, especially of Bolin's guitar, are a delight. It's fun to hear some songs run to the end of the tape also! It's like the train runs right off the track! Completely off the rails is the bonus song titled "Bolin/Paice Jam"... it's too bad MORE studio moments like this weren't captured on tape!

5.0 out of 5 stars Come Taste This December 16, 2010
By ulijon
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am so glad this album got a proper 35th Anniversary release. I first got this one on vinyl in the late 80's while discovering the magic of Tommy Bolin and I actually think this version of Deep Purple was the most interesting. The line-up, David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes, Ian Paice, Jon Lord along with new guitar hero Tommy Bolin are so talented its scary and the material is very strong and definitely holds up after 35 years. The first disc is a remaster of the original album but the second disc is the reason to buy this version as the songs dont fade out and you get to hear the tracks all the way to the recorded end which is amazing on songs like 'Gettin Tighter' where you get another 50 seconds of Bolin and Co. shredding. There are also 2 bonus tracks with one being a complete song minus lead vocals and a almost 6 minute jam between Tommy Bolin and Ian Paice which smokes! I heard that when this was first released a lot of Purple fans did not give it a proper chance because Richie Blackmore was gone, but I do love this album and believe it to be one of the best from this time.

5.0 out of 5 stars hard rock and funky at the same time January 17, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I was in college when this came out and picked it up because I liked Coverdale's vocals. I was a big Blackmore fan and was curious to see how Tommy Bolin would do as his replacement. I loved it immediately but found myself in the minority some 35 years ago. So it never got much play in my dorm room and I let the album go years later when cds became popular. Big mistake! This review is for the double vinyl re-issue which contains the same mixes as the cd reissue. Since I let the vinyl go, I was compelled to replace it with vinyl when I found out is was available. All I can say is that it is truly unbelievable and holds up incredibly well. The liner notes are fabulous and both discs are worthy. With Bolin dying shortly after its release, "Come Taste the Band" makes you long for what could have been had Bolin lived longer. Oh well, we have this...and how sweet it is indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come Taste The Band July 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Come Taste The Band; the tenth Deep Purple studio album (and sole release from the short-lived MK4 line up) is truly underrated and misunderstood, although it thankfully seems to have seen something of a critical reappraisal nowadays, thanks in part to this amazing 35th anniversary edition, in addition to growing appreciation for the late guitarist Tommy Bolin.

Right from the off, Come Taste The Band is big, loud and impressive. Opener `Commin' Home' bursts out of the speakers with pure rock fury, adding back into the band's sound some of the harder and faster rock edge that had been absent from their previous album Stormbringer (which at times can seem like its just 50% Soul/Funk and 50% Quiet Songs/Ballads.)

Come Taste The Band definitely has power and force, but it also has variety. The funk/soul influences that the MK3 band had started using are there in tracks, but there are also more rock orientated numbers, and a few musically exciting pieces like `The Drifter,' which stray into altogether different territory. `Owed To G' even has a little of the classical vibe which the band used to play with quite a bit.

One of the standout moments on the album is `Gettin' Tighter,' which has an absolutely gigantic chorus, which is so energetic and filled with attitude that it puts a huge grin on my face every time I listen to it. It also contains a brake-down of solid funk in the middle, which some fans may object to, but that brake-down is in a very rocking song and this is part of the success of this album, a fusion of the new and the old styles in a dramatic and joyous fashion.

More soulful and funkier than any other Deep Purple. Tommy Bolin brought a new level of magic to this lineup that would never be duplicated again. Brilliant record.

Once again it's great to have more recordings of Tommy Bolin. In my humble opinion he is the bedrock of the bands he played with.
