Gettin' Tighter: Deep Purple '68-76 Book. Deep Purple are responsible for some of the greatest classic crunch rockers of our time, and Getting' 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 dsolo 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 book is 250 pages long, with quite a few previously never published photos by Rich Galbraith, cover design by Rory Fiorito of Ye Olde Metal fame, plus pictures of ads and tour book pages and album covers from around the world. I've interviewed members of Purple around 30 times, and for this one have also talked to another 20 or so fellow rockers about the boys. Thought I'd be provocative as well and put Tommy Bolin on the cover!

What you get is my usual format – one chapter per album, every song examined, lots of looks at the tours as well. Autographed by author, Martin Popoff.

Stormbringer coming!

We have remained open during the Coronavirus pandemic and will continue to remain open! Extra thanks to everyone who has been supporting us during this time! Restocking has been more difficult that usual, but I'm trying as best I can to bring more and more great music to the shop! Super huge thanks to you all from my Rockadrome family and I!!

However, please note that everyone in the biz has been experiencing erratic delays in shipping across the board as the world's postal services try to keep operations running as smoothly as possible. So, if you order be prepared for a possibly longer than usual wait as your package could be one that's gets tied up in the system.

New Release!
