Biography

Whitesnake are an English rock band, founded in 1977 by David Coverdale (formerly of Deep Purple). The band's early material has been compared by critics to Deep Purple but by the mid 1980s Whitesnake had moved away from the early blues influenced hard rock to a more commercial heavy metal style. Whitesnake was named the 85th greatest hard rock band of all time by ... Read more in Amazon's Whitesnake Store

Editorial Reviews

Few groups have had an impact on the international rock scene as Whitesnake. Inspired by the blues, singer David Coverdale's rock vision has become a standard that many acts have tried to live up to yet pale in comparison. An MTV staple throughout the '80s, Whitesnake is embedded in today's pop culture with the latest blatant shout-out in the movie 40 Year-Old Virgin and in Bowling For Soup's smash hit single '1985'. Includes the hits 'Fool For Your Loving', 'Here I Go Again', 'Still Of The Night', 'Is This Love', and 'Now You're Gone. Geffen. 2006.

Whitesnake has Released several Best of Compilations over the Years, and untill now None of them were right...The First Release, 1994's Greatest Hits was Ok, yet it contained a poor Remix version of "Here I go Again" that marred the CD (Much like Billy Idol's Hits CD containing the Studio "Mony Mony" and Bowie's ChangesBowie having a Remixed "Fame"; The above mentioned 3 Songs ALL reached #1 on the Billboard Singles Chart); That CD also concentrated on 1984-94 Whitesnake, ignoring their early Period when they were successful in Europe but not America. Then came the Double Best of, which was too much, many ordinary Cuts, followed by the Skimpy Milleneum Best of that lacked, among other Songs, "Slide it in"; This release Shines, ALL the important Songs are here on One stellar-Sounding Disc, the first 4 Songs are European Hits, followed by the 3 best Cuts from the 1984 CD Slide it In, and all the Hits that followed, including the Radio Hit "Pride and Joy" by Coverdale/Page, which Rocks HARD...The sequencing is a bit Odd, it is Chronological for the first Half, then Jumps to 1990 for 4 Songs, followed by 4 tunes from the '87 CD before ending with '93's "pride" and a Cut from 1979...But it all Plays well, and the Songs Are NOT Remixed, despite What the Previous "Kid's Review" Says (Who obviously Reviewed This CD Twice).....

THE BAND: David Coverdale and an assortment of players from the late 1970's through the late 90's. Most notably playing on one or more Whitesnake albums: John Sykes (guitar), Steve Vai (guitar), Adrian Vandenberg (guitar), Micky Moody (guitar), Tommy Aldridge (drums), Aynsley Dunbar (drums), Ian Paice (drums), Cozy Powell (drums), Rudy Sarzo (bass), Neil Murray (bass), Jon Lord (keyboards/organ).

THE DISC: (2006) 18 songs clocking in at approximately 79 minutes. Included with the disc is a 14-page booklet containing plenty of band photos, a 5-page history (mainly showcasing Coverdale), song titles/credits, what songs came from which albums, and Billboard chart success. Oddly, there is no mention of the musicians/players in any shape, manner or form. Label - Geffen.

ALBUM REPRESENTATION: Come An' Get It (1), Love Hunter (2), Snakebite (1), Ready An' Willing (1), Slide It In (3), Whitesnake (4), Slip Of The Tongue (4), Greatest Hits (1), Coverdale-Page (1).

COMMENTS: I grew up with Deep Purple and Whitesnake in the 1970's. Coverdale had smoking bluesy vocals that absolutely rocked... especially in those early (1974-75) Deep Purple days of "Burn", "Stormbringer" and "Come Taste The Band". He continued to rock with Whitesnake in the late 70's and early 80's despite the music industry bashing his sexist lyrics that were full of innuendos. Coverdale had a way with surrounding himself with very accomplished rock musicians - providing slightly different flavors on each album. On Whitesnake's self titled release in 1987, things changed and the Coverdale power ballad was born. The slower tunes were good, but this wasn't the Whitesnake I had grown to love. It took some time to get used to it.

First off, I am as of this writing a CASUAL Whitesnake fan who remembers the late 80's hits when I was a pre-teen and knows some of David Coverdale's work with Deep Purple. Therefore, this review is geared towards similar types of Whitesnake fans, not the harcore fan who has all the albums. I bought this CD because I simply wanted the hits yet also wanted a sample of Whitesnake's deeper history. THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION, more than any other Whitesnake compilation, seems to deliver. Unlike most compilations, we get five tracks worth of material from the pre-SLIDE IT IN/American fame period, which adds a bit of depth to the compilation in addition to ALL the hits that appeal to compilation buyers. This CD leaves me satisfied with what is on it and also makes me want to explore more Whitesnake later on, which is exactly what I want out of a compilation. Whitesnake may have been a "hair band" image wise, but their talent, professionalism, and 70's hard rock pedigree transcends such an empty genre. Well worth checking out for the beginner.

If you are planning to buy this cd please don't! Buy the "Gold" cd better. Now the sound of this cd is very good. That's not my issue here the problem is the Slow n Easy version that was included here. So what if it is from the European version of "Slide it In" this version is totally lame. The version from the American "Slide it In" featuring John Sykes, and Neal Murray is much much better! It rocks harder with killer guitar riffs. The American version of Slow n Easy was the first Whitesnake song I ever heard and it blew me away. I was completly p!@#off when I bought this and found out that they had the lame Euro version. The "Gold" cd has the killer version that we all know.

While the most recent "Here I Go Again" 2CD collection wasn't bad considering you could get all 3 of the popular U.S. Geffen releases on 2 CDs including bonus tracks remastered, this release contains 5 tracks of the older material in remastered form, therefore giving the listener more of a perspective of the band's history. What is really surprising is that the CD contains the original European versions of "Love Ain't No Stranger" and "Slow An' Easy" which was never released in the U.S. or on the Geffen label. The track "Slide It In" however, remains as the U.S. remix on this set which was a bit disappointing. It was also nice to hear a remastered version of "Pride And Joy". In essence, this is a good collection for the casual listener who likes the well known hits but wants a little more more retrospective of the band's history. But in reality there are better European "Best Of's" out there if you look hard enough...
