'Teaser' (1975) was Tommy Bolin's first solo album, released only one month after 'Come Taste The Band', the record he made as Deep Purple guitarist. The american musician didn't have the chance to promote 'Teaser' properly, since he was touring the world with Jon Lord, David Coverdale, Ian Paice and Glenn Hughes, but his new bandmates let him play a couple of its tracks during the revamped Purple set: the funk fest of 'Homeward Strut' and the more melodic 'Wild Dogs', where he even sang lead vocals. 'Teaser' is one of my favorite albums from the mid 70's, you should try it if you don't mind having many different musical styles within the same record. Bolin was an immensenly talented artist who died way too young at 25 one year later, victim of his own ghosts. I still don't know if he was the right man to replace Ritchie Blackmore in Deep Purple, but the L.P. he recorded with them is one of the best from the band's discography, that's what I honestly think.
