Ye Olde Metal: 1973-1975 Book. Detailed examination of early hard rock albums, many lost to the sands of time, some merely in need of a celebratory re-visit. Primarily through the use of new, exhaustive interviews with the band members who were there – the focus being on one classic album - Martin meticulously pieces together the complete story of each album, lending his respected critical eye to the record, massaging in bucket loads of trivia previously unpublished. The end result is a collection of essays that are variously surprising, funny, revealing, and scholarly. Above all, it is the author’s hope that the enclosed “love letters to ancient metal” enrich the serious musicologist’s enjoyment of each record so reverently examined.

Limted to 1000 copies! Hand numbered and autographed by the Author! Over 225 pages!

The chapters this time:

    * Status Quo – Pildedriver (Francis – one of the best interviewees I’ve had)
    * Alice Cooper – Billion Dollar Babies (chats with Alice, Dennis, Neil plus some supporting research)
    * New York Dolls – New York Dolls (Syl says some great stuff here)
    * Uriah Heep – Sweet Freedom (Mick and Ken – some good stuff on both David and Gary, R.I.P.)
    * Nazareth – Loud ‘N’ Proud (Manny Charlton and lots from Dan too)
    * Montrose – Montrose (killer quotes from Sammy and Ronnie)
    * Bachman Turner Overdrive – II (Randy’s got the best song stories)
    * Deep Purple – Burn (mostly Glenn Hughes, some additional)
    * Robin Trower – Bridge Of Sighs (Robin himself, plus some Geoff Emerick)
    * Buffalo – Only Want You For Your Body (John Baxter and Dave Tice… hilarious ‘Skirtlifter’ story)
    * Bachman Turner Overdrive – Not Fragile (very cool stuff from Randy)
    * Alice Cooper – Welcome To My Nightmare (loads of Dick Wagner and Alice)
    * Nazareth – Hair Of The Dog (again, mostly guitarist Manny Charlton, plus Dan – gold 8-Track!)
    * The Dictators – Go Girl Crazy! (mostly Andy Shernoff and Scott “Top Ten” Kempner)
    * ZZ Top – Fandango (Dusty Hill – excellent interview and song stories)
    * Budgie – Bandolier (Burke Shelley – many surprises in this one)
    * Foghat – Fool For The City (Roger Earl plus material from my ’95 chat with Lonesome Dave, R.I.P.)
    * Deep Purple – Come Taste The Band (Glenn provides the details; some Ian Paice as well)

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!
