Editorial Reviews

Three disc (two CDs + DVD) edition. Live archive release from David Coverdale and his 'Snake mates. On August 18th, 1990 Whitesnake headlined at the premier UK festival, the legendary Monsters Of Rock at Castle Donington, now known as Download. An incendiary musical chapter of the band that featured Steve Vai and Adrian Vandenberg on guitars, bassist Rudy Sarzo, drummer Tommy Aldridge and Coverdale; a high octane performance, firing on all cylinders...and Whitesnake in all its fiery musical splendor. Now, over 20 years later, you can experience being in the middle of the crowd for the complete sensory experience. This is a raw, emotional, head-banging show, that allows even the most discerning fan to relive the magic of that hot summer night over 20 years ago.

By Nikiforos V. Skoumas on June 19, 2011
Format: Audio CD
Finally one of the most requested recordings in hard rock gets an official release in June 2011 by "Frontiers Records". This is arguably "Whitesnake" at the peak of their international popularity headlining the "Monsters of rock" festival in the UK with the legendary line up of David Coverdale (v), Andrian Vandenberg (g), Steve Vai (g), Rudy Sarzo (b) and Tommy Aldridge (d).


This 2CD plus DVD set is a perfect documentation of "Whitesnake"s headline performance at the "Monster of Rock 1990" festival at Donnington, England. "Whitesnake" had previously performed at "Monsters of Rock" in 1980 and 1983-at which time they also headlined and shot a live video for a domestic release entitled "Whitesnake Commandos".


It has to be addressed that the recordings of audio and video were NEVER intended to serve for a commercial release. The audio was recorded and transmitted live by the BBC radio; the video served as real-time footage for the large video-walls of the event so that all 75.000 people could have a decent view of what was happening on stage.
The sound has been remixed and re-mastered to perfection, all instruments come through clearly, capturing each musician's distinct sound. Tommy Adridge's drum attack is up front in the mix with all toms and cymbals audible, Rudy Sarzo's bass is clean and ever-present while the guitars are perfectly defined bringing every minor improvisation to front, you will actually be able to tell the difference between Vandenberg's and Vai's sound from the CD alone.

The video, as mentioned above, was professionally shot but not for the purpose of a video-release, simply for direct transmission.

I first just want to say that I am very excited that this show has finally been released.

I purchased the CD/DVD combo, and while the performance and audio quality are excellent, I'm not a huge fan of the video. My problem is not with the video quality itself, since it's about what I expected given when it was shot and because it was not filmed for an official release. The video does, however, look much better on my smaller 37" TV than it does on my 52" TV. One thing that I do not like about the video is that it's comprised mostly of individual close-ups, with very few shots showing more than one band member at a time. I'm guessing that this is because they had to use the video feeds that were displayed on the big screens during the actual concert, which are usually all close-up shots. Some other annoying things about the video are that the video often changes from color to black & white, and there are several cheesy slo-mo effects used througout the video.

Even though I don't care much for the DVD, the CDs alone get 5 stars and make this is an excellent purchase for the price. This concert will be getting a lot of play time in my CD player and on my iPod.

I had my misgivings about purchasing the "Live At Donington 1990" disc because of other "officially released" versions of shows from other artists that have come out lately have failed to be an upgrade over the versions that have been available on the free trade boards for years. Notably these are the "Live at LA Forum 1983" disc that came with the legacy edition of Def Leppard's "Pyromania" which actually sounds WORSE than the bootleg (how they managed that, I have no idea) and the Dio "Live At Donington" which I bought the Japanese SHM version and is only a slight improvement over the free trade versions. I am happy to say that this release is a dramatic improvement over the free trade versions. All the instruments have depth and the vocals sound great. They did stick with a very live sound in the production. Yes, that does sound stupid but this disc actually sounds like you're at a concert; the audience is up in the mix, the drums sound how they should sound at a concert. Too many live albums get produced like studio albums and lose that live vibe and feel to them but "Live At Donington 1990" actually does make you feel like you're at the show.

The only issue I have with any of the performances is the Steve Vai "solo" track "For The Love Of God." It just doesn't have the same impact as live versions that I've heard with his own back up band. This could be due to the fact that Vandenberg, Sarzo and Aldridge felt that Vai treated them AS a backing band and didn't feel like putting their all into it or they're not used to performing instrumentals or a hundred other reasons but, whatever the reason, the performance on this song falls flat. Other than that, it's a great representation of live 'Snake at that moment in time and would be a worthy addition to any CD collection.

It's only a "nineties" album by sheer technicality...Slip of the Tongue (W/Dvd Aniv) was released on November 18, 1989, and this Donnington set is from August 18, 1990 (headlining a bill that included Aerosmith, Poison, Quireboys, and Thunder). I see it as more of a "last gasp of classic 1980s hair metal." After "Slip," there wouldn't be another Whitesnake album until Restless Heart, and that was actually a Coverdale solo album released under the Whitesnake logo due to the insistence of his record label.

In addition to his tenure with Frank Zappa and his solo works, Steve Vai had become well known for a bit of band hopping: Alcatrazz, Disturbing the Peace (1985), Public Image Limited, Compact Disc (1985), and two albums with the post-Van Halen David Lee Roth.

As work began on the follow-up to their ridiculously popular album Whitesnake, guitarist Vivian Campbell left the band, and second guitarist Adrian "The Flying Dutchman" Vandenberg suffered a wrist injury that took him out of the game. Vai stepped in and played all of the guitars on "Slip," and by the time of the Donnington show, Vandenberg was back.
