There were two different versions of this record released. One version in the UK and Canada, and another in the United States.
The U.S. version added John Sykes as a third guitar player over Mel Galley and Micky Moody. The ultra slick U.S. version focused less on the keyboards of Jon Lord, and is more centered around John Sykes playing.
To me, the U.S. album is the perfect set up for the band’s monstrous 1987 album.
This album is full of stadium ready anthems. Slide It In, Slow An’ Easy, and Love Ain’t No Stranger are all excellent songs that band continues to perform live today. Other favorites of mine from this album are, Hungry For Love, Spit It Out, and Standing In the Shadow.
This album made me a lifetime John Sykes, and David Coverdale fan, and more importantly, a Whitesnake fan.
Slide It In is an album that is often over looked by its ultra popular successor in 1987, but is a record that should not be missed!
