3 stars "In Rock" DP was formed, and it made to year seventh and the band faced the maximum crisis though their activity from now on looked gone a glance. They have grown to existence that the world of the lock of Britain is pulled with Zeppelin etc. and the existence of DP is called a pronoun in the world.

Secession to the band of Gillan and Glover also influenced the music character and directionality. And, the ditch of the band extends gradually and finally causes the secession of Blackmore by the route of Hughes-Coverdale and the dissension of Blackmore.

It was Tommy Bolin to try the guitar in place of seceding Blackmore. At that time, he guesses knowing in the United States comparatively well compared with other countries. In the first half in one's twenties, Bolin was already active in the band that was called "James Gang". And, the work that informed the world of the name of Bolin was "Spectrum" of Billy Cobhum. Impression is received to the guitar of Bolin with this album that Jon Lord that proceeded to the house of Ian Paice heard. This "Spectrum" greatly influences the work of the following Jeff Beck, too.

There is an opinion made that it is Blackmore according to a certain theory to introduce Bolin to the band, too. However, the real intention is not certain. However, it might be certain that a new wind for the band was sent including various details. The fan to be disappointed at the performance of the extent band that is listened to "Stormbringer" of the former work is not few. When Bolin joined the band, the fan might have had the element of hopes and fears. "In Rock" If the flow from now on is considered, DP at this time might considerably revolutionize the route. However, they surely transformed and established a more original route here. The fact that Bolin is almost related to the composition might be appearance of his talent. The start as new DP existed certainly here as a result in this album though the composition of a straight lock stood out.
