Classic Whitesnake, 5 Nov. 2011
This is a fabulous boxset, showcasing the incredible talents of the Classic line-up of this band. For me, it doesn't get any better than this. Although they were very successful during the late 80s. I felt the band had lost it's soul.
Excellent packaging. Each of the albums are presented in Mini-LP format, together with inner sleeves, and at long last the Reading shows from 1979 & 1980 are made available. (I managed to go to Reading 1980 and this brings back some great memories) The DVD collects all of the promo videos of the time as well as various TOTP & OGWT performances. The Washington show is also an excellent inclusion.
The book is fabulous with loads of excellent pictures and details of the LP's. The Snakebite EP is included on 7" White Vinyl with the original artwork. The Vinyl is very heavy, so hopefully should sound terrific.
Overall I would highly recommend this boxset. Its a little pricey, but if you are a fan of this period of Whitesnake, you are unlikely to be disappointed. My only slight criticism is that they didn't use the original White cover for "Trouble", instead they have used the re-release Black cover, but have at least included the original inner sleeve.
