The 2009 eBook by Martin Popoff.
The battle rages on!
In Gettin' Tighter: Deep Purple: '68-'76, Martin Popoff told one half of the story. Now, finally, he completes the frazzled circuit, looking at the stormy Mk. 2 reunion years that hatched Perfect Strangers and The House Of Blue Light, after which "Deep Rainbow" is then sliced and diced for your eager devouring, followed by The Cattle Grazes On (!) and into the surprisingly stellar records with Steve Morse authoritatively commanding the guitar slot of this newly astonishing band.
Inspiring to say the least, the consistent top quality of the Morse-era records and subsequent embrace of Purple by a growing legion of fans worldwide continues to rile those who thought age is necessarily a rock 'n' roll-killer. Come hear, first-hand, the stories behind Purpendicular, Abandon, Bananas and Rapture Of The Deep, albums any discerning classic rock fan should own and own richly.
Celebrated scribe Martin Popoff (often called "the world's most famous heavy metal journalist") has interviewed members of Deep Purple past and present over 30 times. In addition, he's surveyed many of the band's contemporaries, acquaintances and collaborators to finish off his two-part, 500 page Purple book project. Popoff's perceptive critical analysis is also part of the fun, as the complicated story of the band's many lineup implosions unfolds.
