This 2 cd Deluxe version of the classic selftitled album, entitled 1987 outside of Noth america marks the 30th anniversary. (also available as a 4cd/dvd Superdeluxe version).
It gives us the original album completely remastered in the European 11 song version (the original USA album held only 9 songs) but in a different song order compared to the original 1987 release (No clue why).
This album can be considered as one of the highlights in glamrock history with songs like "Here I Go Again", "Is This Love" and "Still Of The Night".
The 2nd disc holds live footage from the 1987-1988 tour with new guitarplayer Adrian Vandenberg and Vivian Campbell on board, both replacing John Sykes who played all the parts on the studio album with only Adrian on board for the solo in "Here I Go Again".
This live album is fresh, and so pure that there even are here and there a few parts where david has a slip of the tongue with his voice.
They did not polish that, which is good. This way you really get the live experience.
Looking back at this album i think it is a typical 80's monsterhit album with lots of hair and catchy chorusses.
A pure classic.
A nice anniversary release for Whitesnake fans and those who love 80's rock.
Whitesnake is still a very active band having released their last album "The Purple Album" which hold Whitesnake versions of Deep Purple songs of which David Coverdale was once part of.
2018 will see the band releasing a new studio release calles "Flesh & Blood"
