Album Notes and Credits
Whitesnake: David Coverdale (vocals); Adrian Vandenberg (guitar); Jon Lord (bass guitar); Tommy Aldridge (drums).
Additional personnel: Jimmy Page (guitar).
Fronted by former Deep Purple singer David Coverdale, the British hard-rock act Whitesnake released records in the late 1970s and early '80s, but the band went largely unnoticed by American audiences until '84's SLIDE IT IN and its follow-up, '87's massively successful self-titled album. This 18-track compilation draws primarily from those outings (and '89's SLIP OF THE TONGUE, which featured guitar virtuoso Steve Vai), including the stomping fan-favorite "Slow an' Easy" and the group's trio of huge hits--the romantic power ballad "Is This Love," the surging anthem "Here I Go Again," and the fierce mini-epic "In the Still of the Night." Also notable is the inclusion of "Pride and Joy," taken from Coverdale's oft-overlooked collaboration with guitarist Jimmy Page, which naturally conjures up a Led Zep vibe. For a concise, well-selected overview of Coverdale's work from '78 to '93, this DEFINITIVE COLLECTION works nicely.
Artist Overview
Former Deep Purple vocalist David Coverdale formed the hard-rock/metal outfit Whitesnake in 1978. While the band's macho rock sound and "what's-wrong-with-being-sexy?" sexist aesthetic garnered them a respectable amount of commercial success in the U.K. and Europe, the band didn't hit big in the U.S. until the release of their 1987 self-titled album. Anchored by the fist-pumping single "Here I Go Again," the album sold millions and forever solidified Whitesnake's place in hair-metal lore.
Artist Bio
WhitesnakeAfter recording two solo albums, former Deep Purple vocalist David Coverdale formed Whitesnake around 1977. In the glut of hard rock and heavy metal bands of the late '70s, their first albums got somewhat lost in the shuffle, although they were fairly popular in Europe and Japan. During 1982, Coverdale took some time off, so he could take care of his sick daughter. When he re-emerged with a new version of Whitesnake in 1984, the band sounded revitalized and energetic. Slide It In may have relied on Led Zeppelin's and Deep Purple's old tricks, but the band had a knack for writing hooks; the record became their first platinum album. Three years later, Whitesnake released an eponymous album which was even better. Portions of the album were blatantly derivative -- "Still of the Night" was a dead ringer for early Zeppelin -- but the group could write powerful, heavy rockers like "Here I Go Again" that were driven as much by melody as riffs, as well as hit power ballads like "Is This Love." Whitesnake was an enormous international success, selling over six million copies in the U.S. alone.
