Whitesnake/Slide It In Import LP
Featuring "Guilty Of Love" & "Love Ain't No Stranger"!! Includes Bonus Track!
Whitesnake are an English rock band, founded in 1977 by David Coverdale (formerly of Deep Purple). The band's early material has been compared by critics to Deep Purple but by the mid 1980s Whitesnake had moved away from the early blues influenced hard rock to a more commercial heavy metal style. Whitesnake was named the 85th greatest hard rock band of all time by VH1.
The sixth studio album by Whitesnake was originally released in 1984 and was the follow-up to their Saints & Sinners album.
"Following up the splendid Saints & Sinners album was no easy task, but 1984's
Slide It In turned out to be an even greater triumph for David Coverdale's
Whitesnake. From the boisterous machismo of "Spit It Out" and "All or Nothing"
to the resigned despair of "Gambler" and "Standing in the Shadow," and the
embarrassingly silly title track, everything seems to click. For hit singles,
look no further than the twin guitar attack of "Guilty of Love" and the sheer
poetry and emotion of "Love Ain't No Stranger," one of the decade's greatest
power ballads, bar none. Not to be outdone, "Slow an' Easy" is a masterpiece of
sexual tension and the kind of power-blues which no one does as well as
Whitesnake. On a quirky historical note, Coverdale fired most of the band soon
after the album's release, replacing them with younger, prettier faces with
which to better conquer America. For that purpose, Geffen Records even released
a re-recorded version of Slide It In with flashy soloing from new guitarist John
Sykes, sparking an ongoing debate as to which version is better." - Eduardo
