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

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent accoustic session April 24, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Very very good! Coverdale can still sing! Adrian played accoustic guitar peacefully...enjoyable and relaxing music! I still love one old song of Deep Purple number (during Coverdale days in the 70) "Soldier of fortune". What a lovely song ballad! David Coverdale is a Hard rock singer who has combinated the cool sound between Deep Purple and Zeppelin. I think he did not mean to copy Robert Plant style on his new band Whitesnake, he just only combinated the Deep Purple and Zeppelin sound together. the result is brain melting

4.0 out of 5 stars NOW THIS IS UNPLUGGED! December 22, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Wow, this is one killer live album. There is no drums, no bass, no keyboards, no back-up vocals, just a single voice and a single guitar. Whitesnake has been around just over 20 years since this release, and it proves to be one of David Coverdale's finest. Yea, his voice doesn't have it's range like it did in the 80's, but he can still melt your heart when he sings them ballads. Not surprisingly, that what Starkers In Toyko contains most of, slow blues burners and late 80's ballads, with a few newer tunes thrown in. It opens with Sailing Ships(one of the two here from Slip of the Tongue), a relaxing rendition that sets the tone for most of the show. Slipping next into the mournful Too Many Tears(1 of 3 Restless Heart songs, I also revieve that awesome album), David pouring his heart and emotion into the song. About halfway through, from 1987's S/T album comes the show rev-upper Give Me All Your Love, and the audience loving it. The last three songs are excellent, Is This Love, the heavy Here I Go(which is about the fastest song performed) and Solider of Fortune. The latter being a lovely addition, digging into his Purple bag of tricks. As for the guitar player, Adrian Vandenberg(hot-shot 80's guitar virtuoso) he is fantastic all the way, not to mention David's perfect guitar player. All-in-all , a relaxing, comfortable listen that will soothe you from a rough day. The only track that would have been perfect for this would have been Slow n' Easy, after one listen to this, you'll know why!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sit back and relax to Whitesnake! July 4, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I never thought I would be using the words "relax" and "Whitesnake" in the same sentence, but there you have it. An outstanding live, acoustic album. This is probably the best one I've ever heard. It's a great example of how simple can really be better. David singing and Adrian on guitar and nothing else! The small audience and the intimate setting only serves to heighten the feeling of David singing live in your living room! A great album to relax to and soothe your nerves after a hard day. As a side note, I understand that David also performed "Fool For Your Loving" which was not included on this album for some reason. He also attempted Adrian's "Burning Heart," but this was not included as he forgot the words!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very pleasant relaxing listening October 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
David+Adrian prove that a song has to have a solid foundation to sound good.All the guitars+drums+effects don't do any good if the songs suck.These songs DO NOT suck.The songs sound good because of the emotion put into them by the performers.David sings every word like they come straight from his soul.He is so "into it"that he sometimes has trouble singing,and not doing the "Tarzan vocal"(His words,not mine).The emotion in his voice is unmistakeable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coverdale can still sing June 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
David Coverdale sounds superb. His voice sounds smooth and yet packed with emotion. This version of "soldier of Fortune" is worth the price of the disc alone; but there is so much more. All of the Whitesnake songs shine here, as once you remove all of the layers screaming guitars, loud vocals, and thundering drums, you have a good pop song. My only critcism is that it's light on guitar work.

5.0 out of 5 stars as intimate as one can get April 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album could be titled: "Whitesnake Unplugged". One great voice. One great guitar. David Coverdale and Adrian Vandenberg perform to a small audience. It has such an intimate feeling to it that one feels that they are part of the audience.Classic Whitesnake songs are mixed with new Whitesnake. Some songs are from the "Restless Heart" album. This CD and "Restless Heart" compliment each other perfectly. This is one of the best "unplugged" albums from any band out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this CD January 26, 2014
By Jim

This CD stays in my car. David's voice is still freaking awesome. David, a guitarist and a microphone. The songs are awesome and a couple have been slowed down but still sound great. If you like Whitesnake, get this CD. I'm soo glad I did.
