Ye Olde Metal: Whitesnake’s Ready An’ Willing

Ye Olde Metal: Whitesnake’s Ready An’ Willing

       iOS Universal

This app tells the story of the making of Whitesnake’s 1980 album Ready An’ Willing.

Featuring three ex-Deep Purple members in David Coverdale, Ian Paice and Jon Lord (who sadly passed away recently), Ready An’ Willing sounded like old news in the rapidly ramping metal environment of the day. But it was old news with classic rock swagger that is only now becoming noticed, appreciated, cherished.

The app’s author, Martin Popoff, explains:

“I've had all the interview footage for this one in the Popoff archive for a long time so I'm glad to finally see it launched in our new buck-a-shot digital format.

“Talked to bassist Neil Murray, guitarist Bernie Marsden and vocalist David Coverdale about this album, sort of a bit every chance I could get over the years, because it's my favourite Whitesnake album, one of the finest Martin Birch recordings to boot, and issued during the excitement of the NWOBHM and yet bluesily above the fray.”

The Whitesnake’s Ready An’ Willing app stems from an as-yet-unpublished Ye Olde Metal “essay” or “chapter,” Ye Olde Metal being a series of five books thus far, examining albums from 1968 through 1978, in detailed, one-per-chapter format.

Martin Popoff has penned 37 books on hard rock, heavy metal, classic rock and record collecting. Martin currently resides in Toronto and can be reached through martinp@inforamp.net or http://www.martinpopoff.com

The Whitesnake’s Ready An’ Willing app is a universal app that is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The app has layouts that have been specifically optimised for iPhone and for iPad.

Look out for other apps and eBooks in the Ye Olde Metal single-album series including Y&T’s Black Tiger, Motörhead’s Overkill, Bad Company’s Desolation Angels, Gillan’s Glory Road and Fastway’s Fastway.
