3 stars While I am Tommy Bolin fan(especially his work on Billy Cobham's "Spectrum") and a Deep Purple fanatic, I can't say Tommy fits in with Deep Purple. This album might have worked if Steve Morse were on it(he DOES fit into Deep Purple). A few highlights, though "This Time Around/Owed To G" where Bolin does get to stretch out with some fantastic soloing...and "Love Child" which is the blueprint for Coverdale's band WHITESNAKE. If this were anyone else's hard rock album, it might garner 4 stars. Not a bad way for DP to go out on in the '70s. They return to form with Perfect Strangers in 1984.
