From their progressive roots in The Book of Taliesyn, to the classic albums In Rock, Fireball, Machine Head, and Made in Japan, Deep Purple epitomized the sound of hard rock for an entire generation. Revered by their fans, reviled by followers of rival musical styles, only now is it really possible to look back and take stock of their achievements. Rock historian Michael Heatley looks in detail at every album of the group’s original incarnation, from Shades of Deep Purple to Come Taste the Band and Made in Europe. Heatley also details the recording sessions and tours, the comings and goings of band personnel, the feuds, and the final break-up. The career of each band member after the split is also covered, as well as the group’s wilderness years, the Knebworth reunion, and the rebirth and new recordings.
