Lightbulb Old or new Whitesnake?

What is your favourite period of Whitesnake ?. I prefer the older versions with guitarists Micky Moody, Bernie Marsden and Mel Galley in the band. My favourite Whitesnake albums are "Love Hunter", "Ready and Willing", "Saints An' Sinners" and "Slide It In". I love the blues-flavoured hard rock of these albums than the later albums.

Talking

You are a lady after my own heart! These are all my favourite Whitesnake albums. When “Fool for your loving” came out as a single I used to play it over and over and when I got the album I wore it out!! I liked the later stuff but nowhere near as good – just sounded kind of clangy.

I saw them several times on the “Saints & Sinners” and “Slide it In” tours – couldn’t get enough!!

I had many pics of David Coverdale on my bedroom wall!!

Icon37 Geffen era

Hi,
I have to admit that I'm fan of Whitesnake's Geffen era...from John Sykes' version of slide It In to Slip Of The Tongue.

I like Restless Heart too. It had potential, but production could have been better.

Br,

T

Hey Chris,

How lucky you all were in the UK to see Whitesnake on a regular basis back then. I don't think they did their first gigs in the US until 1980 when they had an opening slot on Jethro Tull's run through the country. And then nothing until 1984 when they were opening for Quiet Riot; I remember them doing a show in San Antonio in late 1984.

I always preferred the older band; remember seeing Whitesnake at Shoreline Ampitheater back in 1990 and dare I say..being almost bored! I started listening to Ready An' Willin' and Live...In The Heart Of The City in 1985 and I still enjoy those recordings.....I guess I need to catch up to the more recent stuff!!

Early snake

I am very pleased to hear that there are a majority of people here who favour the early Whitesnake. I agree that Coverdale sounds better as a blues singer than screaming his lungs out. He should concentrate on writing new material than performing the same songs that Whitesnake did in the late Eighties.

Icon34 Lovehunter 79

Early days without doubt, first saw them in Oxford on the Lovehunter tour. Ian Paice had just joined this was by far the best line up absolutley stunning musician's and "old covers" really could sing then and was in his prime.

Slide it in was OK but after that not for me. Last saw them on the 87 tour which was technically brilliant but somehow the spirt of those early days was lost.

Slide It In is my fav and that's kind of the transitional album from bluesy to heavy rock eras... Although the way people talk you'd think WS's out-put was 50-50 between the two... there were only two albums from the hard rock era (well three if you count the JS version of SII)...

I like 1987 and Slip a lot and I like the Moody/Marsden stuff too. I also love the three albums he's done since then.

Icon33 the best of coverdale

THIS IS A GREAT QUESTION!!!
I THINK THE BEST DC ALBUM( ALBUM NOT CD - CUS THATS HOW I HAVE IT) WAS "NORTHWINDS" A VERY RAW AND HONEST ALBUM. MY FAVORITE SONG BY HIM IS BLIND MAN. I THINK THIS IS PRE WHITESNAKE SO MY NEXT VOTE WOULD HAVE TO GO TO "SNAKEBITE"

Yep I was at the Liverpool Empire too. Does anyone remember DC falling into Paicey's drum kit as he strided on hair flowing at the start? Ah well yes for me the early stuff but hey Still of the Night is an all time top ten classic for me. It's as if DC had something to prove and he proved it. Paice, Lord, Coverdale, Marsden, Moody and Murrray was a bluesy line up and it's funny that style has now come full circle.

Newer Snake...ahh well...it's just me then.

Probably because my first lp (yes lp) by WS was Slide It In with Sykes. I then saw there was another version without him and bought that too, but it just wasn't as powerful.

I then bought everything going forward and backwards, and while I love both, (Northwinds is STILL my favorite album) the heavier stuff was just more my style...

Guess I'll just have to be in the minority!

As Bob Delgado mentioned earlier in this peice, Whitesnake were due to play the 1000 seater Colwyn Bay Pier but cancelled on the day due o the stage being too small for all their gear (or DC's ego). Shame really, they'd have been good.

Uriah Heep also were due to play there on the Abominog tour with Pete Goalby (ex Trapeze post GH) on vocals, but the promoter Lloyd Mortiss (honest name !!) did nt fulfill the terms of the contract to pay half the fee up front so they cancelled. Local band Harvest Moon stepped in at short notice with some records played by a geezer called Chris, who did it at every gig between 1980 and 1983 I think it was!!!!!!

Ah, the memories keep flooding back..........Oh yes, Trapeze (with Goalby on Vox) played there in November 1977 with Nutz as support - my first proper gig!!!!! (I was 15 at the time). I still have Nutz Live Cutz on vinyl n CD now based on that show......Sorry to go on but hey ......

Yep, gimme that 'ole time Whitesnake, it's good enough 'fer me.....

I admit that I had to look these two songs up,
to check what albums they're from:
"Only My Soul" from Northwinds.
"Child of Babylon" from Come and Get It.

Anybody else besides me think that they're two treasures?
Gravelly-voiced ballads without any screaming from DC?
I rate these two right after the too-short "Soldier of Fortune."

It's always seemed to me that you could define the old versus
the new Whitesnake by this simple example:
In the old lyrics for "Here I Go Again" DC sings......
"Like a hobo I was meant to walk alone"

But after the politically-correct police got after him, the lyrics were changed to
"Like a drifter I was meant to walk alone"

First you "adjust" the lyrics, and the next thing you know,
people will call Whitesnake "a hair band."
Which it didn't start out to be.

If DC is really smart, he'll dust off the early classics for this UK tour.
Good for his vocal chords, and even better for the audience.

And as Glenn Hughes quietly walks on stage to sing a DP medly and a "YKOM" duet........

PS.....And it's great to see that they dug out Mr. Spencer from a snowbank,
so that he could post here

While for the most part I prefere the original version, I've got to say 'drifter' is a better lyric than 'hobo'. It just sounds better, hobo sticks out like a saw thumb IMO.

Drifter would seem a more logical word too, drifters gives an image of a guy who wonders from place to place never setting down, while hobo gives the image of a more stereotypical homeless person, a less romantic image.

I agree, the older WHITESNAKE era is for me the most suitable for the bands material. Personally, I think the more modern era has a much too heavy sound which wasn´t part of the original Whitesnake sound and songs at all. It always had that kind of bluesy, R&B feeling, which you can hear very nice on the TROUBLE album, for instance.

greets, Achim

Totally, totally, great news, Chris
Wishing all sorts of happiness to you both
Let me know your complete NEW address for future reference, OK?

You know how much I enjoyed meeting you both in New York.
Even though you "tried" to drive my car.
(I wish I had a photograph of your face, when you saw that my car's
steering wheel was on the "wrong" side of the car.)

You must be very busy making your Glenn Hughes compilation CD
for all the music to be played at the wedding reception, huh?
I hope that your knees are good-looking enough for the kilt fashion statement?
And please..........no haggis for the guest's menu, all right?

Take care, and say hello to Lyn for me.
Grace

"Child of Babylon" era was a time when Whitesnake had its best vibe of music. Never reached it again like this. It´s a pity that these days are over.

I miss those days too when David Coverdale was an R & B singer and not a screamer. Listen to "Bloody Luxury", "Rock an' Roll Angels" and "Sweet Talker" and you know what I mean. Even "Ready and Willing" sound like a funk track and "Love Man" is very bluesy. My favourite DC albums are the ones he did before Whitesnake.

Thumbs up Remasters

From dpas:

Quote:
It looks as if the Whitesnake album remaster programme is finally getting off the ground. The first batch will include "Trouble" (first issued in 1978), "Lovehunter" (from late 1979) and "Ready An' Willing" from June 1980. Jon Lord is also on all three albums, while Ian Paice had joined in time for the latter. Bonus material is promised, but as there weren't any rare B-sides (unless you count all the live tracks), we're not sure exactly what. There were plans to issue the 2 live Hammersmith shows from 1978 and 1980 (which were cobbled together in 1980 to make "Live In The Heart Of the City") in full, as separate releases; fingers crossed this is still the case. The first titles are expected in mid-May.



Sounds good to me

Thumbs up more...

The titles are all being co-ordinated by David Coverdale himself and they're looking at mid-May as a start date. The bonus tracks have not been finalised yet, but the listing here is what they are hoping to include:
Quote:
WHITESNAKE – TROUBLE. Bonus tracks: Come On / Bloody Mary / Steal Away / Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City (all from Snakebite E.P.) / When You Go Down For The First Time (previously unreleased)

WHITESNAKE – LOVEHUNTER. Bonus tracks: Belgium Tom's Hat Trick / Love To Keep You Warm / Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City / Trouble (all from BBC Radio Session 29/3/79, and previously unreleased)

WHITESNAKE - READY AN' WILLING. Bonus tracks: Love For Sale (previously unreleased) / Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City / Mistreated / Lovehunter / Breakdown (all from Reading Festival '79).

Slip Of The Tongue is my favourite Whitesnake album because it's the one that got me into them - but two of my other close favourites are 'Come And Get It' and 'Trouble', so I'm open to all the work. The new DVD is as good as anything of theirs though - I'm really happy with that. Corking show! Not bad for a band that have actually been retired twice!

Here's one for the fans of "old" Whitesnake, an early video (!) of Lady, but featuring only David Coverdale, from the debut Whitesnake album. Is that his bank manager at the mixing desk
