The 2012 Martin Popoff interactive ebook about the making of the Y&T album, Black Tiger.
Finally on the map with their scorching first album for A&M (Earthshaker was their third overall), California’s Y&T were ready to strike with their classic fourth record, 1982’s Black Tiger.
Thirty years on, this ebook tells the story of how Black Tiger was made – in singer and lead guitarist Dave Meniketti’s own words. The ebook includes extensive audio of Meniketti describing how Black Tiger was recorded (at Ridge Farm studio in England) – including his comments on the album’s tracks and on touring with AC/DC in 1982.
The ebook includes photos of the Black Tiger recording sessions from Meniketti’s personal collection.
Author Martin Popoff draws on three recorded interviews he did with Meniketti. Popoff also penned a new review of Black Tiger for the app, and an essay in which he argues that Y&T were a kick-ass NWOBHM band who, through no fault of their own, happened to be from San Francisco.
