About this album

Come Taste the Band is the tenth album by Deep Purple. It was recorded in August 1975 in famous Musicland Studios in Munich and released on October, 10th 1975. It was the first album in the band’s history not to feature guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, as he left the band after the tour supporting their previous release, Stormbringer, dissatisfied with the new funk and soul elements in Deep Purple’s music. He was replaced by American guitar player, Tommy Bolin who, along with Glenn Hughes, pushed the band even more into those musical territories that Blackmore detested.

The album reached # 19 in the UK charts and # 43 in the US. By many fans, it is considered to be one of the weakest albums in DP’s discography, although recently it gained more praise among not only Deep Purple fans, thanks to Bolin’s contribution.

In 2010, a 35th Anniversary Edition was released, containing the whole album remastered and with a second disc that features the whole album remixed by Kevin Shirley with the aid of Glenn Hughes. Two non-albym bonus tracks were added, both being rehearsal jams.

Just like Burn and Stormbringer, this album also features both David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes singing lead and co-lead vocals. Hughes is the only singer on “Gettin’ Tighter” and “This Time Around”. Bolin sang co-lead vocals on “Dealer”. This song was at first to be sung by Glenn Hughes, but he was sent home during the recording sessions because of his bad health caused by drugs and alcohol.
