At the time the album was being made Whitesnake featured ex-Deep Purple members David Coverdale, Ian Paice & the late Jon Lord. When released the critically acclaimed record peaked at #6 on the UK album chart and marked the first time the blues-rock outfit charted outside of the UK reaching #32 in Norway and #90 in the US.

Author Martin Popoff said of the third Whitesnake album:

 "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."

'Ye Olde Metal: Whitesnake's 'Ready An' Willing' is available as a 16-page eBook in high-resolution PDF format from and as an app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch in the iTunes App store.
