all tracks are regular album versions except where noted
1. Stormbringer (quad
2. Soldier Of Fortune (quad mix)
3. Hold On (quad mix)
In their first official release on CD anywhere, these
three quad mixes only offer something different in terms of performance (not
mix) in a different vocal take on Soldier Of Fortune, where one line is sung
decidedly different. Apart from this, a general clarity to the mix brings out
one of two new instrumental details.
4. Highball Shooter (instrumental)
Trained ears immediately pick up the fact that this is a different mix.
The vocals are missing(!), but everything else seems to be there in a slightly
rougher mix, where again new details that were hitherto burried now pop out.
Hopefully these four tracks have not exhausted the options for bonus material
on a remastered Stormbringer album.
5. The Gypsy (Paris
Apr 7 1974)
An unusual favourite here in a somewhat rearranged live version with added
vocal work, which thankfull amounts to a lot more than silly whooping. Taken
from Mark III Final Concerts
6. Drifter (rehearsal)
(California June 1975)
7. Dance To The Rock N Roll (jam) (California June
When Tommy Bolin joined Deep Purple, the band convened in a Hollywood rehearsal
facility to jam out ideas for the coming album. The resulting jams showed enough
musical ferociousness and infectious energy to illustrate just what a wasted
opportunity Mark 4 really was. Taken from Days
May Come & Days May Go
8. This Time Around/Owed To "G"
9. Love Child
Remastered from the original Come
Taste The Band tapes. This Time Around and Love Child suffer from a high
pitched digital noise more or less running all the way through the tracks. Being
just on the border of what's audible to the human ear, it might annoy your dog
more than yourself(!). Still, for such an otherwise excellent product it's a
crying shame something like this slipped through.
10. Wild Dogs (Tokyo
Dec 15 1975)
Tommy Bolin shines on this solo track performed onstage with Deep Purple
and first released on Last Concert
In Japan. This version is the remix from This
Time Around released in 2002.
11. Lady Luck (Los
Angeles Feb 27 1976)
12. Getting Tighter (Los Angeles Feb 27 1976)
Two examples of Mark 4's amazing stage power - when it was working. The
13-minute version of Gettin' Tighter is a Glenn Hughes funkmeisterpiece, which
nonetheless also proves that it was Lord and Paice who kept the band together.
Taken from On

13. You Keep On Moving
Mark 4's crowning glory ends the box set on a relatively calm note. Remastered
