Ye Olde Metal: 1976 Book. Detailed examinations of 13 classic old albums, using new interviews with guys in the bands, maybe a little available press here and there. These are looks at these albums that are way more exhaustive than any commercially viable (!) book would ever dare. More photos than last time, plus some 45 sleeves and cool old original ads etc. The book is 241 pages, full trade 6" x 9" dimension, and stuffed with trivia folks ain't never heard before – I guarantee it.

Limited to 1000 hand numbered copies, signed by the Author, Martin Popoff.

The chapters:

    * Max Webster – Max Webster: my fave Canadian band of all time. Amazing album – I got Kim in here, and Terry and the band's mysterious lyricist Pye Dubois

    * Scorpions – Virgin Killer: I talked to Klaus, Rudy and Uli about this record, the blasphemous German cover art etc., the concept of a "virgin killer"

    * Point Blank – Point Blank: Rusty, John and Philip talk about being Bill Ham's second banana ZZ Top

    * Angel – Helluva Band: one of the greatest albums of all time; amazing stories about the business muscle behind the signing of the band. Frank and Mickie dish the goods

    * Rex – Rex: OK, Rex is one of the most entertaining guys I've ever talked to. His stories about the mob and singing on the lunch room tables& funniest thing I've heard in years. A lot of Leber and Krebs in here too

    * Moxy – II: Buddy and Earl on struggling in Canada and then saying, screw it, and playing heavy next time

    * Teaze – Teaze: heaviest Canadian album of the '70s – bloody 'ell, you should know about it

    * Lone Star – Lone Star: What happens when your whole band becomes scientologists? Plus you'll love Kenny's Peter Grant/Led Zeppelin story

    * Starz – Starz: OK, Rex is the best, but his brother Michael Lee is pretty funny too. Cool Kiss/Sean Delaney crossover stuff here

    * Ted Nugent – Free For All: OK, the best story in here, bar none. I talk to the whole band on one of the most cherished albums of my youth. I'm jaded, so it doesn't matter, but I hope this 16,000 word expose doesn't destroy your faith in the Tedinator

    * Boston – Boston: I had the privilege of talking to Brad Delp at length about this album before his shocking suicide. Tom provides some great stuff as well. As tribute, Brad is on the cover of the book

    * Foghat – Nightshift: bloody LOVE this album, and Roger and Craig do it justice

    * Kansas – Leftoverture: talked to Steve, Kerry, Phil and Robbie here. Good overview of what Kansas was getting at, and Steve let's us get a good look at his state of mind
