Editorial Reviews

A year before his shocking death at age 25, guitar whiz Tommy Bolin stepped in for Ritchie Blackmore in Deep Purple. This Japanese concert shows just how awesome that lineup-Coverdale/Bolin/Paice/Lord/Hughes-was, as they play Burn; Highway Star; Smoke on the Water/Georgia on My Mind; Lazy (with drum solo), and several "Mark IV" (as that Deep Purple lineup was known) originals. 2 CDs of live 'n' loud heavy-metal brilliance!

Anyone who has ever heard the infamous album LAST CONCERT IN JAPAN must listen to this brand-new 2 CD set. It is a true eye-opener to hear this complete Deep Purple show, recorded with the Mark IV lineup including Tommy Bolin in Tokyo on December 15, 1975. Received wisdom has long held that Bolin's playing was severely hampered this evening due to a drug overdose or sleeping on his arm funny--take your pick. As a result (the story goes), he could only play basic chords while Jon Lord held down the sonic fort on a painfully abbreviated set list. Listening to LAST CONCERT IN JAPAN would seem to bear this out, but this new album shows that LCIJ was a heavily edited, at times misleading affair.
No, this is not a superior Purple performance, or even a great one. Still, the band played a full set that night, with a fairly frantic energy level and seemingly good spirits. Bolin played well enough that evening, although arguably his performance on the King Biscuit CD (recorded 2 months later) is better from a technical standpoint. His guitar is louder in the mix here than on LCIJ (and yes, he did actually play the main riff to "Burn"), and his solos are often quite exciting (especially on "Gettin' Tighter" and "I Need Love.") In fact, it can be argued that Bolin always sounded good on his own material from COME TASTE THE BAND, while the earlier Blackmore stuff was treated with a much more tentative hand. It doesn't help that Bolin had ostensibly no background in classical music, unlike Ritchie "I had classical training for a year when I was 11" Blackmore.
The others turn in decent performances for the most part.

this cd is a double remix of the original LP who had appeared in warner bros Japan 1977.
Long ago the original LP Last concert in japan was rushed out very quickly, and the Japanese record company put out the songs on the LP not correct. The set had an errors, and many good songs such as lazy, Stormbringer, This time around and owed to G also Drifter were hacked.
This new double remixed cd is now presenting the whole Deep purple mk IV set from the beginning until finish.
You can checkt out from a thundering Burn until the great anthem Highway star. And Deep purple featuring Tommy Bolin on guitar was not a weak line up. This previous line up was short, but the legendary is still alive.

Being one of the hugest concert acts of the 70s, Deep Purple had set a high standard for itself, which is why many DP live sets without the title "Made In Japan" often go unclaimed. But the rambunctious performance of "This Time Around" captures a blaze of musical and emotional fire, and also serves as a time capsule for this particular period of the band; Deep Purple had been put through a slow and agonizing series of line-up changes, when they hit the jackpot with their best line-up (the so-called MkII line-up); Ritchie Blackmore, Roger Glover, Ian Gillan, Jon Lord, and Ian Paice. But the ultimate cliche of rock and roll unravelled as both Gillan and Glover exited, followed soon by Blackmore (after he completed work on 1974's "Stormbringer"). In them, Deep Purple had lost a great frontman, bassist/arranger, and a guitar hero, respectively. Paice and Lord (both of whom have always been brilliant even on their own) kept the band together and recorded three respectable albums and keeping itself alive by connecting to audiences in lifehouses captured here on "This Time Around."
Fever-burning, blistering, trademark Purple attacks on many songs from their post-MkII's success era give them a whole new breath of life. Anyone who complains that the recordings on the 1974-75 albums lack spark should definitely hear "This Time Around"; it will give them a chance to hear those "need-improvement" versions brought back to life and beyond, such as 'Burn,' 'Stormbringer,' 'Drifter,' and 'You Keep On Moving.' And it's always nice to hear any live version of 'Smoke on the Water' and 'Highway Star,' while Deep Purple never forgets to boggle the musical senses with complex solo spotlights. It's hard to ignore the fact that these, some of Deep Purple's last concerts before splintering for nearly a decade, are marred by the personal state of the band; drugs and a heavy schedule took their toll, but not before DP had one last punch.

I really loved Last Concert In Japan. It was a stripped down version of the full concert. I had it on vinyl so I wanted a CD version. Low and behold - an enhanced full concert. And after reading the reviews bought it.

Now, people said Tommy was on drugs....blah blah blah. Thats why the playing sound sloppy. I actually liked the relaxed feel about the original album.

The songs are still super strong. But now it actually makes sense where everything is. Band not on(?) on the night? They were. And I actually much prefer Tommy Bolins playing on this to his solo stuff.

Okay, there's a bit of stuffing around - but what concert didn't in the 70's? Long drawn out solos from every member.

A must have for an DP fan, or rock fan in general.

Having already heard, and even bought at great expense the notorious "Last Concert in Japan" set, I was somewhat dubious about this one. However, it is not necessarily as bad as it seems. While undoubtedly Tommy Bolin was a great guitarist, there is also no doubt that he was not a great Deep Purple guitarist. And there is also something not quite right about David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes singing "Lazy".
There are some good moments on this album. Tommy's "Wild Dogs" has always been a favorite of mine, and Jon Lord's keyboard solo is as impeccable as ever.
But, unfortunately, the low points somewhat outweigh the highs. The riff to "Lazy" being played mainly on keyboards, Glenn Hughes' hoops'n'hollers, and I for one am getting tired of hearing Coverdale saying "it's a rock'n'roll song" (which the songs on "Come Taste The Band" clearly weren't!
This is infinitely better than "Last Concert In Japan" however, all the way down to the packaging, and it is nice to hear a lot more of the "Come Taste The Band" tracks getting a live airing. I would really have liked to hear "Comin' Home" though, as that was always one of the high points of that particular album.
Three months later the band were gone, and based on some of the live albums we have been hearing lately, it is not too surprising. This was not the same band that recorded "Machine Head" or even "Burn".
I'll lay good money on the fact that if there are any tapes of Liverpool in March 1976, they will never be released!! Buy this for completeness.
