DP releases included in new book from Martin Popoff

Martin Popoff, the prolific writer of articles and guides about metal and hard rock, has just released the latest book in his new series, Ye Olde Metal: 1973 To 1975; this time, concentrating on recordings from (as you might imagine) 1973 through 1975. In a similar manner to the Classic Album video series, he has gone to the sources of the recordings themselves, using interviews with the musicians to uncover the background surrounding these albums, and try to explain why they’ve become classics of the genre.

The albums he explores in this volume include

  • Status Quo – Piledriver
  • Alice Cooper – Billion Dollar Babies, Welcome To My Nightmare
  • New York Dolls – New York Dolls
  • Uriah Heep – Sweet Freedom
  • Nazareth – Loud ‘N’ Proud, Hair Of The Dog
  • Montrose – Montrose
  • Bachman Turner Overdrive – II, Not Fragile
  • Deep Purple – Burn, Come Taste The Band
  • Robin Trower – Bridge Of Sighs
  • Buffalo – Only Want You For Your Body
  • The Dictators – Go Girl Crazy!
  • ZZ Top – Fandango
  • Budgie – Bandolier
  • Foghat – Fool For The City

    I’d like to see Martin do a one-chapter per-album Purple bio as he did for Rush (Contents Under Pressure) & Sabbath ( Doom Let Loose ).He certainly knows his stuff !!

    If Mr. Popoff is still of the opinion/mentality that led him to rate DP’s first 3 studio albums as ‘zeros’ (an opinion I understand he later amended – probably after actually listening to them!) and feels that a legitimate, thoughtful album ‘review’ consists of his memories as himself as an 11/12 year old supposedly blaring the “Burn” album over his school’s pa system whilst shooting water guns at the rest of the student body and virtually no mention of the album’s music…I personally couldn’t care less what he has to opine about almost anything and everything, especialy his opinions regarding Deep Purple & related (musical) family.
    Even were his book available for absolutely free, legal perusal, I’d have to be extremely bored to waste even a macrosecond of my life reading anything by him.
