Re: Deep Purple Illustrated Biography


...and here's Garry Smith's short review of the updated version of Charlesworth's "The Illustrated Bio"/Robinson's "Listen, Learn Read On":

A few words about the book. Page size is 13x25cm (to fit inside the box), and there are 112 pages. As Simon Robinson acknowledges, much of it is an amalgam of Chris Charlesworths's Illustrated Biography and the liner notes from the rereleased/remastered albums. After all, there are only so many ways that you can tell the same story. However, the book contains much information that I didn't know - plus lots of cuttings, pictures and memorabilia which I hadn't seen before - so it amounts to much more than the mere sum of its parts!

The Illustrated Biography had a diary list of gigs running down the side of each page. That's not in this book, but Simon does refer to the forthcoming concert diary book Day By Night, by "historical consultant" Nigel Young. That can't come soon enough... - Garry Smith, from his review on the Highway Star of the "Listen, Learn, Read on" box set.
