3.0 out of 5 stars Here we go again,again,again,again, 16 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Made In Britain/The World Records (Audio CD)
Recorded on the 2011 Forevermore tour,although specific venues are not identified as to where the tracks were actually recorded.This is a pretty good set of Whitesnake tunes,however long term fans of pre Slide It In era,maybe unhappy as there are only 3 tracks (Aint no love,Here I go Again & Fool for Your Loving) from before Slide It In & with the backing band that Dorothy currently employs, these tunes are performed very much in a widdly,diddly shredder type way.Sorry but the version of 'Fool' in particular is awful,to this listener,very much in the Slip of the Tongue mould.Positives??The Forevermore stuff sounds very good,especially One of these Days which I'm very pleased at it's inclusion.Love Aint no Stranger too sounds wonderful.Negatives??The bass should be louder & 2 versions of Fare Thee Well seems odd,could've put a different tune in & some of Reb Beach's soloing,as talented as he is, just seems plain WRONG.His solo on Give me all Your Love doesn't get anywhere near the original,he widdly,diddlys on Slide it in & biggest disappointment is the solo on rarely performed The Deeper the love, as the guitarists appear to chicken out of properly tackling Vai's original.Also,I would've like some more tunes from the Good to be Bad album.Also the musical interludes on disc 2 are annoying,very vegas-like padding,robbing the audience of actual songs.Overall not a bad set,the band sounds better on later-day material & Doug Aldrich does a fair John Sykes tribute act on the 87 stuff,but Beavis & Butthead enthusiast, Reb Beach must try harder!!Ideally,you should MP3 the live versions of tracks here off Good to be Bad & Forevermore,then buy John Sykes's Bad Boy Live & Company of Snakes Here they go Again Live.This way you will have all era's Whitesnake properly catered for in the live arena,assuming you already own the super Live in the heart of the City.Bad Boy Live Here They Go Again

It's not a backing band you dork, they are fully fledged band members.
And why are you calling DC Dorothy?
Is it because you saw someone else do it, and/or you think it makes you look clever?

You are entitled to your view,Clive.Having witnessed them earlier this year Clive, on the tour,it appears to be in my view Clive,like 'a backing band',instead of a 'group' as Whitesnake used to be.If they are fully fledged members as you infer Clive,they must be hugely frustrated at playing the large quantity of ex-members superior material each gig, & the true spirit of a group is missing, as none of them were involved in the construction of these legendary songs.As a result of this,on stage Clive,Dorothy appears to be in his own little world.I call David 'Dorothy'as it suits him & he reminds me of Judy Garland in the very ,diva like way he behaves & communicates,Clive.For the record Clive,I do know Dorothy does not like to be refered to as DC.As for thinking I'm clever,nah no chance.Free country,only an mischevious opinion,etc,etc,etc.I think you belittle yourself & your views by having to resort to calling people dork's,really is no need, Clive . Thanks for your comments Clive.
