Little Box o Snakes is a scaled down edition of the Box o Snakes from 2011, this one contains the first 5 studio albums, the Snakebite EP, 2 live albums and a 16-page booklet with all the lyrics and songwriting credits.
Missing are the Live at Reading 1980 CD, a DVD and a 90-page hardcover book.
It´s hard to believe this band has only released 11 studio albums in their 35 year long career, they were definitely more creative during the Sunburst years 1978-1982. With the classic line up of David Coverdale, Jon Lord, Bernie Marsden, Micky Moody, Neil Murray and Ian Paice/Dave Dowle.
Something that I didn´t think of back then when I was a teenager listening to Whitesnake, was what a great bassplayer Neil Murray actually is. He´s doing some fabulous playing on these early albums.
Well, these songs sure do put the nostalgia factor high and it´s like I´m young again.
