Cant believe its 20 years plus since i taped this off the radio,it sounded huge then it sounds huge now,a stunning audio recording of Mr Coverdale's triumph,bringing Whitesnake home as one of the biggest bands in the world.
The audio sound is fantastic with all the stadium rockers performed to perfection 'Judgement Day','Slow N Easy','Is This Love','Aint Love In The Heart Of The City' & 'Still Of The Night', while others such as 'Fool For Your Lovin','Slide It In' and 'Slip Of The Tongue' hit the spot.
Im still stunned 20 years on that Vai was allowed to perform solo tracks but they are both excellent,the guitar solo's and drum solo in the middle of 'Cryin In The Rain' i can take or leave,but thats what the skip button is for if you choose.
The band were on fire and this release captures the moment perfectly,there are a couple of occasions were the Coverdale voice falters but generally its a sterling performance,well worth purchasing.
The Dvd has raised a few eyebrows given its picture quality,lets be honest if a pristine version existed it would have been issued years ago,so lets be thankful for what we've got,its a bargain at this price,im more annoyed at the switching back n forth from color to black and white,does my head in.
The picture quality varies,treat it as a decent bootleg,you would have paid a lot more back in the day.
Packaging is pretty good,fold out sleeve with a ok booklet with a few words from Mr Coverdale,incidentally David,if your reading this ,are we really to believe this set has been requested for release more than the 1979 & 1980 Reading live sets?,C'mon give us old timers a treat,a double disc from Reading would be the icing on the cake.
