I had hoped that they would clean up some of the production on the two first two Coverdale albums, but unfortunately they haven't. I really like both of them, but I have wasted my money buying these so-called remasters. There's still a lot of hiss on the quiet parts. If you already have this album on CD, then don't buy this because it's no better than what you have...

In 1977, after making the world sit up and listen to arguably the greatest Blues/Rock voice through the medium of Deep Purple, D.C.released his first solo album.It passed by largely unnoticed.Don't make the same mistake this time! The complete range is here.Full on Rock vocals on 'Lady'and'Whitesnake'.Blues influence on 'Peace Lovin'Man',and pure soul when it comes to the ballads such as 'Blindman' and 'Hole In The Sky'. Add in the two bonus rehearsal tracks,and the only thing you are missing is his second solo album 'Northwinds'. 'Whitesnake'doesn't get 5 stars,because even this remastered version is not quite up to scratch on sound quality - but who cares? Not me.

Less an album project than a batch of songs waiting to happen, Coverdale's 1976 solo debut is a sparky effort. The jaunty hard rock of 'Lady', which opens the album, typifies the overall mood. 'Time On My Side' and 'Sunny Days' follow suit, while the title track, which his later band would be named after, smoulders with its theme of temptation. Of the other songs, the slower 'Blindman' is a highlight. Coverdale thought so too because he resurrected the song for Whitesnake's 'Ready An' Willing' album. 'Hole In The Sky' and 'Peace Lovin' Man' are decent songs, though the female chorus towards the end of the latter makes it sound uncomfortably like Joe Cocker's version of 'With A Little Help From My Friends'.

Only 'Goldie's Place' and 'Celebration' are disappointing, both being out of place. The former is a tame, mid-paced recording and the latter a Latin disco-style number. On the whole, though, this is a bright album, featuring some fine guitar work, particularly some subtle slide, against Coverdale's classy voice.

4.0 out of 5 stars the beginning......., 18 July 2010

This review is from: Whitesnake (Audio CD)
Although this is clearly a solo album,originally released in 1977,the genesis of WHITESNAKE can be traced back here,Coverdale along with Micky Moody start the journey which would culminate with the debut 'Snake album Trouble in 1978.

This disc, wonderfully remastered enhancing the ,of its time 70's production,remember the days when you could hear each instrument clearly! is a mixture of rock,soul and blues,highlights are plenty, from the title track and the opener 'Lady' hinting at the path Whitesnake would take while the funky 'Goldie's Place' & 'Celebration' show another side to the talented Mr Coverdale.

Elsewhere you have the blues influnced 'Peace Lovin Man' and 'Time On My Side' before Coverdale hits the top with the energetic 'Sunny Days'(should have been a hit single) and the album standouts two stunning ballads 'Blindman' which would be redone with Whitesnake 3 years later and the beautiful 'Hole In The Sky'

Special mention must be made of 'Hole In The Sky' as emotive a song as he has every sung,if you've ever lost someone,then the words will ring true and resonate in your soul,a truly stunning song and tragically never included on any compilations due to the licensing issues.

The remaster has two bonus outakes of 'Peace lovin Man' and 'Sunny Days' both decent but never likely to trouble the versions on the original album.

An excellent start from David Coverdale and possibly the truest,most honest album he ever done, a joy to listen to from start to finish.

If you already have this album on CD, then don't buy this because it's no better than what you have. If you don't already have this album, but like bluesy Coverdale - not hard rock Coverdale - then buy it.
