Deep Purple survived a seemingly endless series of lineup changes and a dramatic mid-career shift from grandiose progressive rock to ear-shattering heavy metal to emerge as a true institution of the British hard rock community; once credited in the Guinness Book of World Records as the globe's loudest band, their revolving-door roster launched the careers of performers including Ritchie ...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most amazing Deep Purple finds ever! May 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The wait of two years or more is over...Days May Come, the June 1975 rehearsals done just as soon as Tommy Bolin came aboard, has just been released. Legal wranglings kept the CD from being released for two years...after the tapes were discovered in the sound engineer's garage. But now the world gets to hear what the buzz was all about that heady summer, after the rather dogmatic Blackmore left Deep Purple to form Rainbow, and the remaining members found an American named Tommy Bolin to take his place on guitar. Bolin's style is different from Blackmore's, to say the least: he comes from funk, fusion, and "acid rock," whereas Blackmore was Mr. Classical meets Metal. Bolin's jam-based style gels well on these lengthy jams, which also get the other Purple members a chance to really show off. Track by track: 1. Owed to 'G'--not radically different from the Come Taste The Band LP version recorded two months later, but still a great heavy tune. 2. If You Love Me Woman--Bolin lays down a Hendrix-like rhythm (similar to the one on "Homeward Strut" from his miraculous Teaser LP) over which Coverdale does vocal improvs a la Sly Stone's bass-rich style. The rest of the band grooves along. 3. The Orange Juice Song--Lord plays somber organ backing to Coverdale, based on a classical piece. 4. I Got Nothing For You--similar to #2 above, but with a different approach to keep it interesting. 5. Statesboro Blues--Bolin gets to show off his blues chops, and Coverdale shows that he's been listening to his Allman Brothers. Lots of fun. 6. Dance to the Rock and Roll--Hughes's vehicle for showing off. Based on a riff developed during Space Truckin' when Blackmore was still in the band, but given a Bolin take. 7. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars oh I love Tommy Bolin really! November 5, 2002
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I'd grown up with the music, deep purple has composed in the middle of 70's. This rehearsal recordings was taped in june 1975 by the engineer Robert Simon. At that time DP was searcing for the new guitar man, after the legendary Ritchie Blackmore left in that same year. The search on Tommy Bolin's name was on. The materials of Deep purple MK IV rehearsal on that day were absolutely rarities, because they have never sung the numbers such as statesborough blues, Last of the long jam, drifter on stage. Tommy Bolin was ahero in this album, his guitar playing is absolutely grander than grander.
Finally in 2000, Robert Simon gave the original tape to the DPAS chief Simon Robinson in the UK.
PS: A must for all deep purple fans & lovers.

4.0 out of 5 stars MK IV PURPLE formula April 12, 2001
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I have changed my mind, I should have given this cd with 4 stars....because As I was listening to the songs last night, I was stunned with that cool jam, what Tommy Bolin had done in 1975. Bolin (the man who could replace Blackmore in 75) had helped Deep Purple by acrossing the bridge....and he had got his eye of the tiger within the band. John lord always said that his blues playing is incredible, when they've fist met. The great songs like Drifter, Bolin started with a howling of guitar eerie sound, it is a heavy track! I got nothing for you is another cool track with a Jamming enthusiasm of the band. Dance to the rock n roll is the heaviest track on this cd, Coverdale voice is growing stronger and stronger. Statesboro blues is a rock blues jam, & it is not very often that we are listening to DP playing a stuff like this. Many PURPLE fans have felt sorry that the line up was a short life, but th elegacy and the golden age of deep Purple mk IV is still forever in the heart of fans like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars the most relevent of discoveries November 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is MK IV as they should have been represented years ago: Bolin playing beautifully, and the rest of the band digging it. It is not a state of the art recording, a fact that works in its favour because it gives the listening experience a unique atmosphere. Sweaty, smokey and UP without the polish (that kinda atmosphere).

It's a shame that there isn't more of it, like much more of it. We will never hear the band jamming to a newly written 'Gettin' Tighter' or 'You Keep On Moving'; but what we have here is both a fantastic insight and an incredible recording.

Personally I always consider the MK IV line up as the Deep Purple incarnation with the potential to be the most musically significant today. The fusion of rock with funk is very common now, and the widespread love of herbal lifestyles should make the colours that Tommy Bolin brought to Deep Purple very appealing. Bolin played with an energy that would have been perfectly fused with this band were it not for his escalating drug problems. Although Purple lossed Blackmore's love of exotic scales when he quit the band, Bolin raises the pentatonic stakes drastically (his blues playing is awesome -- taking in scales from the Mississippi Delta right through to Texas).

The band hit astonishing peaks during these improvisations. Coverdale Ad-Libs the line "If you feel like you're drifting on air, don't let your friends stop you thinking you're there." The overall standard of the jams is on a par live recordings of The Who, Zeppelin and the Stones during the golden.

Basically, if you like to hear an exceptionally talented band jam like crazy for an hour or so, you will love this album. Some trip, believe me.
