4.0 out of 5 stars A great touch of nostalgia, 30 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Here They Go Again (Audio CD)
This 2 CD release is a must for fans of Whitesnake material featuring the twin guitars of Marsden and Moody. It includes all the favourites of this era including Lovehunter,Fool For Your Loving and Here I Go Again. Stefan Berggren may not be D.C. but the band are as tight as ever with John Lingwood(drums),Neil Murray(Bass) and Don Airey(Keys). Aspects of solo careers are also here including the M&M penned Silver On Her Person and Moody's classic slide guitar solo and also includes Since You Been Gone which is not quite the classic Rainbow but played with gusto all the same. This proves there is life after D.C. and having seen them live this captures the essence of great musicians playing at their best.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable live album, 26 Aug 2003

This review is from: Here They Go Again (Audio CD)
"The Company Of Snakes" comprise bassist Neil Murray and guitarists Bernie Marsden and Mickey Moody from the original Whitesnake album, as well as drummer John Lingwood, keyboardist Don Airey, and the excellent Swedish vocalist Stefan Berggren.
On this crisp-sounding double live album they play almost exclusively old Whitesnake tunes from the late 70s and early 80s (and they're well within their rights to do so, since almost every one of these songs was co-written by either Moody or Marsden).
And it sounds great. Bernie Marsden and slide guitarist Mickey Moodey have lost none of their chops in the twenty years since they left Whitesnake, and Stefan Berggren is (almost) as great a singer as David Coverdale.
The only thing that could have made "The Company Of Snakes" a better band would be the inclusion of now-retired pianist/organist Jon Lord, whose sublime organ playing and fiery blues-'n'-boogie piano would have made this fine live album even better. You just don't hear enough of Don Airey.
But what's here is more than good enough as it is...Mickey Moodey and Bernie Marsden trade off rock-solid riffs and excllent solos, and Murray and Lingwood provide a tough, muscular backbeat.
"Here They Go Again" provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy once more the "old" Whitesnake songs that Coverdale doesn't do anymore, but it isn't just for Whitesnake nostalgics - this fine album should appeal to all fans of hard, bluesy, guitar-heavy rock n' roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whitesnake without the Snake, 27 Dec 2013

Indid! Whitesnake without rhe Snake (a.k.a. David Coverdale). All the true Whitesnake Funs wonder how Whitesnake would play if the Snake wouldn't change the Band back in 1982/3. Maybe like this. After all the Company are 3 out 6 of Originals (Marsden, Moody, Murrey) ply Don Airey!

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Wull, 16 Aug 2011

This review is from: Here They Go Again (Audio CD)
Great British Rock,Benie Marsden, Micky Moody and co. remind us of the original Whitesnake that had soul,had the blues and could rock the "baws aff ye" No pouting posing American poodles here. David Coverdale is sensational but he left all his great British players behind to pursue the American dream. If you want to Rock,this is for you.
