WHITESNAKE – Slide It In – 35th Anniversary Deluxe Edition Box
Discs one and two containing the UK and US versions of "Slide It In" are both very cool, but the third disc is amazing in that it is a scorching hot 35th anniversary (2019) remix of said album. You want loud and crispy music? Then check that one out! The fifth disc contains the Glasgow gig and Powell’s stellar drumming and double-bass attack have rarely sounded better than they do here, but if we go back to the fourth disc then that one holds some monitor mixes and intros from September 1983 (probably the least interesting tracks compared to the rest of the box set material) and Lord’s last gig with the band. The sixth CD is entitled "Early Ruff Mixes, Original Demos & Obscurities", and that one is a lot of fun. The DVD is of course loaded with music videos, various clips both old and new, and a few other bits and pieces. Then again, why I am telling you all of this? By now you should have figured out that this anniversary release is bluesy hard rock at its finest and housed in a fantastic-looking box that deserves a special place in your kick-ass collection at home!
