Best Deep Purple book out now!!! Great read, fun!! 4 décembre 2005
Par Child in Time - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"The Complete Deep Purple" is as complete a book about Deep Purple as you will currently find. It starts even before the formation of Purple, and goes all the way to the Bananas album, in chronological order. Author Michael Heatley writes objectively, by letting the members of DP critique or just as often, praise their work. I have been a Purple fan since the early 70s and I hadn't previously read most of the quotes in the book. Either he actually talked to the various members, or else he has a large collection of Purple articles and stories from which he can delve. I particularily enjoyed the numerous quotes from Mark I bassist Nick Simper. Usually Purple books skim through Mark I but Heatley doesn't. He gives them their just due. The book is a good, fun, comprehensive read. But don't expect much behind the scenes gossip in regards to family or friends. That said, there is some dialogue concerning various musicians that the members know or knew. For instance, I didn't know that Jon Lord was close friends with George Harrison. I also liked the in-depth information about the time Ritchie got sick and Randy California took his place for one show. The end of the book has an album by album, song by song, review by the band themselves via quotes (unlike a fanzine, Heatley never actually talks about how great someone is prefering, as a said before, to let the band critique themselves. At times, you want him to just say that the guitar solo in Child in Time is unbelieveable, but he quotes Ritchie saying something to the effect that it isn't all that special, which everyone knows isn't true. It is one of the very first really long, complex guitar solos that has probably inspired thousands of people to pick up the guitar). Too bad it only includes studio albums. I would've loved reading about all the live albums that have cropped up in the last few years. Also, if a newer edition comes out, DVD's should be included.

Great for the Casual Fan (who still has all the music) 13 avril 2006

I wasn't sure if I should buy this book - I love the band but am not one of those people who really follows the coming and going of members or what's going on. I just buy new CDs when they come out.

I bought the book anyhow (since the Deep Purple/Rainbow/Black Sabbath family have given me more musical pleasure than anyone else), and I'm glad I did. The style is a bit whirlwind, with names and locations and dates dropped everywhere, but given how large the book is as it is I can see why this was done.

But it was amazing the number of times I was reading the book and went 'AHA! So that's why...' As just one example of dozens, I had no idea why it took Purple so long to do a CD after Abandon, and it's casually explained here.

There are lots of little anecdotes, and the section at the end with band member comments on every song of every studio almbum is enlightening as well, if a bit rushed.

So for the cost of one CD you'll get a much deeper understanding of the music you love. I think that's worth it.

Perfect companion to "Smoke On The Water" by Dave Thompson 1 août 2006

As a HUGE Deep Purple fanatic (and all things Blackmore), I was very impressed with this book---in fact, it was very hard to put down. Lots of good tidbits I didn't know before (or, if I did, more details were fleshed out); quite a page turner. I especially enjoyed the song-by-song analysis of each studio album. Get this asap!

almost the definitive bio of Purple......... 14 mars 2007
Par william rickard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
First I must say as a long time fan of Purple I eagerly await any new books on one of the finest yet most overlooked hard rock band in history. That said let me follow by saying this is one of the better books written about Deep Purple though I must say there is still no comparison to the long out of print "Illustrated Biography" by Chris Charlesworth. For the casual fan or someone who has recently discovered Purple it provides an excellent introduction to one of the most exciting bands to ever hit the stage. Michael Heatley provides a basic history of the band though its very difficult to cover 35 years of history in only 240 plus pages. A little too general in places and I for one would like to know more about the Blackmore/Coverdale rift. Perhaps the best feature was the song by song break down of each album, with different members providing their own views of each title.

With having said that, "The Complete Deep Purple" is an excellent begining to anyone getting to know the band though if you can find a copy of Charlesworth's "Illustrated Biography" do it.

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"The Complete Deep Purple" is a good book.The History of the band is almost the same like the "Smoke on the Water" book.Still it's good book.The stories behind each song from all the albums up to "Bananas" is interesting.Like "Smoke on the Water".The pictures are good but show very little of Lineup 1# with Rod Evans and Nick Simpler.It's good reading.
