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

Whitesnake was the band formed by vocalist David Coverdale after his acrimonious departure from Deep Purple. Intended as a vehicle for his own brand of bluesy vox-heavy rock (the first album was a set of ballads), the project quickly grew to include the gargantuan keyboards and pyrotechnic percussion of Deep Purple's Jon Lord and Ian Paice, the sound becoming fuller, the lyrics more overtly predatory. Love Hunter, recorded before Paice's arrival, was immediately notorious for a sleeve featuring a buxom woman sitting lasciviously astride an enormous snake. It also revealed Coverdale, who was often dismissed as a mere sexist rocker, to be a master of various forms--dirty, dark-hearted rock ("Mean Business"), incorrigibly sensual R&B ("Rock'n'Roll Women"), and slow, impassioned and soulful anthems ("Walking In The Shadow Of The Blues"). Leading to 10 years of unremitting success, Love Hunter was Whitesnake's purest offering. --Dominic Wills

Format: Audio CD
Aaaaah the memories,my mums face when i strolled in with this album under my arm back in the vinyl days,great stuff,to pee your parents off and you havent even played it a full volume yet,ha ha.

That was then,this is now and another remaster,the production on this album always sounded thin to me,the remaster just enhances that and at times its a bit shrill,trebly particularly up loud,at the time Coverdale hated it,said it should have been an E.P and wanted to redo the drums when Ian Paice joined,it wasnt to be and poor old David Dowle was shown the door after the albums completion

However its a great album and the class is obvious another step up from the previous release,the album opens with a classic one ,two of 'Long Long Way From Home' and 'Walkin' In The Shadow Of The Blues',two of the finest tracks penned by the band,the former another one of those classic sing along feel good tracks Coverdale was so good at while the latter just motors along the classic groove and makes you want to punch your fist in the air,fabulous stuff.Up next a lost gem,the soulful ballad 'Help Me Thru The Day' which allows David Coverdale to show he's blessed with a fantastic voice.

The rest of the album is split between classic rockers such as 'Medicine Man','You N Me',the decidedly average 'Mean Business',2 underated tracks,the Bernie Marsden sung 'Outlaw' and the Quo Riffery of 'Rock n Roll Women' alongside the epic title track 'Love Hunter' best track on the album and the short ballad 'We Wish You Well'

Bonus tracks are from a radio 1 session,i'd never heard of,superb renditions of 'Belgian Toms Hat Trick','Love To Keep You Warm','Aint No Love....

I Love this album its so good its mind boggling from the artwork down to the lyrics,

the best track for me is probably the opener as well like other reviewer, the bass guitar playing on this album is still good a bit less complicated sounding and bit more laid back which suits the bluesrock of Whitesnake, The drums are also awesome I think the drum production is a little bit less thin on this album its nice and dry though, the guitar work is exciting to listen to if thats a word I can use to describe guitar playing, there is a hint of the more metal style they would take on later albums, the crooning soulful voice of the best blues rock vocalist in history is to die for, he croons, he sings, he wails and generally just makes you wish yo had pipes like his, Excellent, don't forget the organ playing too everyone always forgets the organ on Out law there is a really nice little organ solo.

one the remaster you get a nice four track live e.p from the radio 1 sessions which includessome songs form this album and trouble in cluding the well known ain't know love in the heart of the city Walking in the shadow of the blues is another
top song its so good and it shows they have respect for their roots

Album artwork

the album artwork is such a classy piece of art yes its could be called 'sexist' or anything else but its not its just a women right but naked on agiant snake and suits the album almost perfectly.

top album and a must own for any rock fan A proper classic album it should be more classic than it gets credit for like in a 1001 albums you must hear type classic I do like it that much

I love this album, it has got so many great things about it, the only thing it lacks is Ian Paice on the drums, but the drummer (one Duck Dowel) makes a very good noise on the round chair. There are several highlights on this album, the first just has to be the sleeve, beautiful art work that sets the tone for this, and many more Whitesnake albums to come. The album then opens with what I belive to be its best track. Long Way From Home, just oozes class, great tune and fantastic words, also serves as a reminder that David Coverdale was not only blessed with one (if not the) greatest rock/blues voices ever, but he was also a very capable songwriter, this song also shows that you can sing about your love for a woman without mentioning things like loveguns, honey pots and so on..... Track 2, is Walking in the Shadow of the Blues, this is a real Whitesnake classic, it says a lot about the band and its future direction, it is also a thouroughly great tune. Help me thro' the day is often refered to as a "filler" I disagree, i think this in one of the stronger tracks on the album, a damn fine slowie! Medicine Man is the usual rock and roll, doctors and nurses, "ive got some medicine for you, would it be too much trouble if I was to inject it into you baby" type of thing, but it really works, also has great backing vocals. side one of the album finishes with You & Me, again great melody and some nice guitar work a worthwhile finish to side one. Side two wastes no time getting up to speed with the intollerably fast, and fantasticly funky Mean Business, I just love the lines "Dont you knock on my door if you dont want an answer, give me a beat if you dont wanna dance aaa!" Just great.Read more ›
