Biography

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 ... Read more in Amazon's Whitesnake Store

At the time of writing Amazon have not provided a clear track listing.
So this is not a review as such just a way to pass on the information about the tracks and which ones have been remastered etc.

This may help the potential buyer?

For a decent review Robbie Murdock has written a good one.
may I suggest you read that as well?

If you spot any mistakes just add a note and I will alter the details and credit you with your knowledge.

As said in the other reviews this is a great value set,theres no questioning the early Whitesnake back catalogue at all,its quality classic rock.What does let the side down is the box,i actually sat looking at it wondering how it opened without damaging it.Turns out you turn the top down like a backwards cigerette box just enough to lift the inner flap up to get the albums out....i have no doubt the front cover of the box will crease and split if regularly opened,shame more durable materials were not used or just have a simple box or slip case.This should be a 5 star set but knocked one of for the poor box design.

Not even I could justify the wallet lightening load that was the "Box O' Snakes" set that came out a couple of years ago. Much as I would have enjoyed the self pleasure it would have given me, the thought of Mrs H catching sight of the bank statement so soon after finding my extremely large Whitesnake, um, collection would have been just too much. I couldn't face the "but why do you need 4 vinyl copies of "Lovehunter" when you've got it on CD" speech. Apparently, there is no right answer to that question.

However, here we have a cut down CD version of the set, without any of the important things, such as the Reading Rock sets and the DVD. And yes, Mrs H, I know I have those highly illegal BBC Transcription records locked away in the Swis bank vault, but that does not mean I don't want them out on CD. Instead it's a bare bones 9 disc set covering the period 1978 - 1982. So it's everything from the "Snakebite" EP through to "Saints &' Sinners". There's no bonus tracks, which I quite like, as I grew up with these records and like them just the way they are. And it includes the Japanese only "Live At Hammersmith" set as well as the more familiar "Live...In The Heart Of The City".

Musically, I don't think it got any better than these. It was the music of my puberty and defined my ears for everything that was to come. "Trouble", "Lovehunter", "Ready An' Willing", "Come And Get It", "Saints & Sinners" - I salute you. Once you manage to get inside the stupid assed box with its stupid assed flaps, which guarantee they won't be coming out very often, you'll find the mini LP replica cardboard sleeves, and some of the finest British rock ever recorded.

If like me you aren't fussed about extra tracks then this box set is for you, it's remastered and looks nice in the cigarette type box but the box is the reason I knocked a star off.

It looks good but when you open it the lid won't fully close and you have to struggle a bit to get the discs out, also the sides came apart and had to be glued back in place.

The company obviously didn't give much thought to fans buying this when they designed the box but it's not a major problem for me, hopefully it's only my copy that has this fault and I hope that other reviewers have no such problems.

Some fans will buy this as a collection filler, others (like myself) will buy it as a substitute for their Vinyl copies and anyone else will probably be buying it as an introduction to the band.

Other than this the Slide It In album is the only other album you need to own (in my opinion), I'm not a fan of post 87 material but each to their own.

To sum up this box I'd give 5 for the music and 4 for the packaging, a must buy for any Rock fans collection at a nice price.
