The 2009 eBook by Martin Popoff.
Deep Purple are responsible for some of the greatest classic crunch rockers of our time, and Gettin' Tighter: Deep Purple '68 – '76 examines those songs – all of them – indeed every last recorded track throughout the band's celebrated albums from the '60s and '70s, along with b-sides and key solo career moments. "Highway Star," "Smoke On The Water," "Space Truckin'," "Fireball," "Stormbringer," "Hush"… these are iconic tracks the world over, and herein lie the tales of their fanciful forgings.
The world's most prolific and recognized hard rock journalist Martin Popoff 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 bring you the most thorough and detailed story of the band's early years. Indeed, assessing the book along with its follow-up, A Castle Full Of Rascals: Deep Purple '83 – '09, the discerning Deep Purple Appreciation Society says, "I believe the two books comprise the definitive history of Deep Purple."
Popoff's perceptive critical analysis is also part of the fun, as the complicated story of the band's many hirings and firings unfolds. Prepare to get rocked like Jon Lord's hoary Hammond!
