4 stars Burn from 1974 is an underrated album, I find it very strong Purple release. This is the first album where we can hear to famouses musicians - Glenn Hughes and David Coverdale. Hughes was already a well known musician, who came from a great band from early '70's Trapeze, Coverdale still un unknown singer in 1974 , who will make his own band in late '70's Whitesnake and made one of a hell of career in the '80's. So the album Burn is a great one with tight musicianship and excelent voice of Coverdale. Purple being still in bussines with this album, they capture new grounds with this release, sometimes we can hear some hard boogie arrangements like:You Fool No One, but not bad at all. Coverdale's voice is the chery on the cake here delivering some stunning vocal parts like on: Sail Away and Mistreated. As a whole all the musicians did a great job, remaining Deep Purple all the way. I will give 4 star without hesitation, a great album and very present today, even quite better than the next one or the previous one.
