Everytime I am buying a new album from a 80's band, an inevitable doubt crosses my mind: Is this worth to buy or just another desperate attempt to get some more money before they dissappear forever?

With Whitesnake is not the case, this is the kind of band that gets stronger with the years, even when they crossed through the 80's hair metal era, David Coverdale has been always a talented musician bringing new and fresh ideas in every Whitesnake record, but at the same time being consistent and clear on the sound he wants.

I felt confident to buy this record because I had the opportunity to see them performing live on this tour as opening act for Judas Priest in Mexico City and loved the show.

This is a good summary of the Whitesnake career, Coverdale keeps his great voice, excellent mix of songs between the old records and the 80's-90's era, great musicians line-up... and the band sounds mature and stronger than ever. Like good old wines, getting better with time.

The unreleased songs at the end sound good and fresh,definitely worth to listen, they sound more like a preview of an upcoming Whitesnake record rather than old cut tunes that didn't make it to previous records.

For metal fans that started in the early 80's like me, this record is an oasis, without tags, without molds, without crossovers, just an uncompromised pure rock album from a band that stills enjoys to play. I have really enjoyed listening this record from beginning to end.

Ironic, but good old bands sound fresh these days....

The other individual who reviewed this CD ... is irritating. A musically narrow-minded person who can't just judge the album on the album, who like (the minority of) other WS fans felt left behind when 'Snake hit it big in the US with "Slide It In" and "1987". It's the same with the Metallica fans who say Metallica sucked after "And Justice for All" ... (in other words ripping the BLACK album) ...
Coverdale's voice is pretty good (not the best it's ever been, but strong) and Doug Aldrich is awesome on guitar, playing the Sykes solos very well --- Anybody who reads that really negative review should see it through the true perspective: that some felt it wasn't 'their' Whitesnake anymore when WS made it huge on the trilogy of albums they put out on Geffen ... So if one has the premise anything they've done since the
"Come and Get It" days is junk, there's NO WAY a live album largely consisting of post-1984 material (with a couple new tracks) is gonna get a
normal review. And WS was great pre-1984? But not after?? B.S. - the
1987 album is a metal work of art (even though I didn't like "Is This Love"), a masterpiece of mood ... and while they contained great songs the production of the 3 WS albums, "Ready and Willing", "Come and Get It", and even "Saints and Sinners" is TERRIBLE, sounds like 3 guys jamming in a garage on 40 Watt amps.
Of particular note on this live album is the smash-mouth drumming, in the live songs ... the drummer does a superb job, gives this lineup of WS a really solid backbone. One other note of contention - Coverdale has in fact been given the runaround by certain folks in the American record industry, since Whitesnake's return to the scene 3 years ago.

This is one of the best live rock bands ever. This release as well as Live... In The Still of The Night can atest to that as can anyone who as ever seen this band live. You won't find any "I forgot how this solo goes" (Ace Frehley) or "I can't sing all of these lyrics without passing out" (Vince Neil) at a Whitesnake show. This is an excellent two disc summary of the bands catalog and the performance is fantastic. The four new songs with Aldrich on guitar are in the classic Whitesnake vein and are not just thrown together for this compilation. They are very strong tracks that sound like they could have come out of the Sykes/Vandenburgh era. I have only two minor complaints here. One, the price is a little excessive. Two, the sound on this live effort is just fine but it is not as good as the sound on Live....In The Still Of The Night. The sound here is a little more polished than needed but that's only realized after hearing Live.....In The Still Of The Night.

I for one was happy to hear that David Coverdale was re-activating Whitesnake at the end of the last decade. I was even happier to hear that the sound of the new band was more akin to The Snake circa 1980 rather than 1990. Plucking another guitarist away from Dio, this time Doug Aldrich (who would sadly leave as of 2014) who would serve as his main foil and help lead the band through a renaissance that would last until this day. This collection was culled from several live shows across Europe and includes a few brand new studio tracks in "Dog", "All I Want Is You", "If You Want Me" and "Ready To Rock" which show hardly any of the "Hairspray" period of the band thank God and they do stand up next to the songs of the band's golden period of 78-84. With it being recorded outside of the U.S. that aforementioned period got a lot of attention on this release with around a dozen tracks from that period (yes, "Here I Go Again", "Crying In The Rain" and "Fool For Your Loving" are NOT from 1987 and 1990) are included. The guitar playing from former Winger axeman Reb Beach and Aldrich is inspired with Beach showcasing the 80's shred components while Aldrich showcases the more melodic side of the spectrum. This collection I feel is a good way to transition the American Whitesnake fan to the superior early European Whitesnake material. I'm thankful that Coverdale returned to his roots in order to head towards the future and this is a fine example.
