Decent Live Album
on 24 April 2013
In vogue with most other rock bands, Whitesnake have saturated the market with live albums in the past few years. Hot on the heels of the vintage "Live At Donington 1990" we get a more recent offering recorded in Japan. Don't let the unimaginative title put you off, after all, David Coverdale's old band Deep Purple recorded the definitive "Made In Japan" and NO live collection bearing the same name will ever top it. Couldn't they have given a little more thought as to what to call it? The past few live albums have been pretty repititious. This one differs in that it contains live tracks from the previous two studio albums "Good To Be Bad" and "Forevermore" and very little from the early days, only two tracks predate "1987". The DVD is entertaining enough. A single live CD was always going to miss out a few favourites, which is disappointing as the long drum solo loses it's impact without the visuals and could easily have been excised. I can't imagine listening to it more than once. The bonus CD is worth having as it contains "soundcheck" recordings of songs not performed at the show. They even left in the between song banter between the band members. All in all, for the price here which is good value for a 2 CD/DVD combo, very worthy of a punt.
