Probably the best Whitesnake compilation,
This review is from: The Silver Anniversary Collection (2CD) (Audio CD)
This is another good selection of hard rock from a good group. Some of the live recordings are a little noisy, as can be expected, but the overall sound quality is good and not "remastered" into the ground.
Relative to The Best of Whitesnake, this is missing a non-live version of "Ready an' Willing" (not a substantial difference), "Would I Lie To You" (a funky, slightly pop-ish number), "Long Way From Home", "Give Me More Time", "Standing In The Shadow" (all solid hard rock tracks, the latter not to be confused with "Walking In The Shadow Of The Blues").
On the flipside, this compilation makes use of the space to fit in slow ballads like "Sailing Ships", "Soldier of Fortune", and "Love Is Blind"; some stylistic variation from the likes of "Pride And Joy"; and simply an extended selection of funky/bluesy hard rock like "The Time Is Right For Love". They're cheap enough that you can take a shot at both and still get a lot of music for your money even after the overlap.
