How does 4 new Whitesnake tracks sound to you? Worth the price of two CD’s? Do you like live CD’s?
Typically, I don’t usually go after live CD’s, but I had to make an exception for Whitesnake. I love this band and I always will.
The lineup for this version of Whitesnake could arguably be the best of them all.
Coverdale on vocals, Tommy Aldridge bashing the hell out of the drums, Doug Aldrich (House of Lords, Lion, Dio) on guitars, as well as Reb Beach (Winger), Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Blue Murder) on the bass, and Timothy Drury (The Eagles) on the keyboards. I saw this same six members play live, and it was nothing short of an amazing experience. I had no problem picking up this CD after seeing that show.
You have to hear this CD to appreciate it. Coverdale is in fine vocal form here. Doug Aldrich may be every bit the guitar player that John Sykes is (and John is one of my favorites). He is absolutely awesome!! Tommy Aldridge how the hell do you do it after all of these years?!? This is truly great stuff for any Whitesnake fan!
The 20 Live tracks and 4 new studio tracks. How can you pass this up? The four studio tracks are pretty decent too!!
Ready to Rock is a fast paced kick ass rocker with some serious axe shredding by Aldrich. If You Want Me – I’ll Come Running is another great rocker, which is a little heavier on bass, and sounds great. All I Want Is You slows it down mid-tempo and sounds like it could be the cousin of Is This Love. It is another great track! Dogturns the heat back up another fast paced rocker with the trademark Coverdale howl! Excellent stuff!
I can’t say enough about this release by Whitesnake. I love this lineup. The live tunes kick ass and the new tunes leave me wanting more. You have to be crazy not to pick this one up!
