Editors’ Notes

Whitesnake’s seventh studio album marked a departure from frontman David Coverdale’s blues rock roots (retained from his Deep Purple days) as the band joined the popular hair metal ranks that were dominating radio and MTV. Hits like ”Slow and Easy” slither with libidinous lyrics while others like “Guilty of Love” boast melodies more sticky than a case of Aqua-Net hairspray. But shortly after the album’s release, Coverdale replaced various band members with younger faced guns for the purpose of conquering a more image-conscious America. Geffen not only approved of the executive decision, but the label also re-recorded and remixed the album with different parts by newer guitarist John Sykes. This 25th anniversary commemorative edition includes both versions — the American and the U.K. release with Sykes’ added leads and riffs peppering the former. It’s difficult to judge which one is better, but with the American version, the drums and Sykes’ guitars carry a more upfront presence with the bass and keyboards tastefully tucked, while the U.K. version puts the bass and keyboardist Jon Lord’s parts higher in the mix.

Customer Reviews

Maybe the best Hair Band album ever???

Slide It In is probably one of the best albums I own, and I own a lot. This new version is great, because not only does it include the 10 songs that made this album a classic, but it includes the original versions of many of the songs. Yes, the version originally sold in the US was not the original version of these songs. It was a reproduced, Americanized version. It was the most successful 'Snake album this side of the Atlantic, and with good reason. If you weren't alive in the 80s and feel deprived, listen to Slide It In, Slow & Easy, and Love Ain't No Stranger. Then you will know what you were missing. To finally, 25 years later, hear the original versions of the songs is awesome. I would have to say the Americanized versions are better, but it is wildly cool to hear the earlier versions. John Sykes and Mel Galley's playing is more modern and gutsy than Mickey Moody and Galley's. Niether is bad and all are worth listening to. Buy the album, crank it to 11 and revisit a lost decade of decadence!!!

2 for 1

Awesome! You get two sides of the same album. Both versions are great!

The last good Whitesnake album

The UK mixes are the reason to get this, it's the original Whitesnake the way the band always sounded, before David Geffen forced them into the hair metal act they really weren't.


Formed: 1977 in London, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

After 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.
