Album Review

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.

Customer Reviews

Get The Original!

This is a great album but the original is better! The original album has a different song order and has Micky Moody on guitar instead of John Sykes. I do prefer John Sykes guitar playing though but overall the original sounds better. Martin Birch mixed & produced the original and this one was mixed by Keith Olsen. The backing vocals are much more present on the original than on this version. There are even some electronic drum fills added on the song All Or Nothing. Something I'm sure didn't sit very well with the late Cozy Powell. The drums also sound huge on the original where they sound compressed on this one. If you can find it, I highly recommend finding the original version of this album.

80's pure rock

This is the album that got me into rock. Great guitar and a great front man.


Great 80's Rock! Hair bands, yeah, this was the leader. Great guitar, drums, vocals. Old School rock, best songs = Slow an' easy, Love ain't no stranger. Frank the Tank would be proud.

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.
