But The Book of Taliesyn is the record that deserve the "the album where all had started" advertising campaign. The world was conquered by the brits and their psychedelic and prog rock. The Beatles were at their peek, delivering some huge tunes. Everyone were amazed by Hendrix, Cream, The Who and other class acts. Some guys named Pink Floyd had their wheels on motion. Tetragrammaton, their US label, urged them to go back to Studio and record a second album right away in order to strenghten the live set. So they did The Book of Taliesyn. Is it any good" While "Shades" was basically the band trying to find their sound, their second effort showed inmense improvement. Oh yes, they are still trying to find it, but this record sounds a lot more cohesive, even if they are still experimenting different styles. We still have covers, brit pop tunes, psychedelic interludes and progresive rock feeling all around, but there is also one element found here for the first time: hardness. This is the track you casual Deep Purple listeners can relate to, because it sounds like the band we all know. In fact, the harder sound can be tasted from the very begining, listening to the opening track Listen, Learn, Read On. Kentucky Woman, the lead single, is a great Neil Diamonds cover.

I don't understand where this record went wrong, it is all too restrained somehow. American reviewers were enthusiastic of Deep Purple's live performances [24] [60] and the lack of a new successful single apparently did not ruin the positive perception of the band in the US, to the point that they were often addressed as an American band.

Modern reviews of the album go from positive to mixed.

Joe Viglione of AllMusic compares Deep Purple's production to Vanilla Fudge's, underlining how the two bands covered songs from the same authors and used similar arrangements.

My main complaint about Deep Purple is that when we did get some success, which was very, very quickly after we started, we were just worked to death by the management and the record company.
