Format: Audio CD
I just can't understand some of the previous reviews slating the sound quality of this remaster. I wonder how familiar the reviewers were with the U.S. mix of this album which did actually feature different guitar work (courtesy of John Sykes) and Neil Murray's bass playing (as opposed to Colin Hodgkinson on the UK version). Perhaps this is why they hear a different version of the album than they were accustomed with- because the US mix is in many respects a different album to the original UK release.
As for the gripes with the sound and the quality of the remastering job, is it again perhaps the US mix rather than the remastering work which others are struggling with? I have had both the US and the UK mixes on CD for many years now and am therefore very familiar with both. I've played this new version in my car, on my hi-fi and on my i-Pod now and I think it sounds absolutely awesome- clear as a bell. I've also compared it to the versions of the very same songs which appear on "Here I Go Again- The Best of Whitesnake", as the tracks were also previously remastered for this US only compilation, and the the new remaster wins hands down. The artwork and design is superb and, if you are a fan of the band, I could not recommend this enough.

Slide It In
Like some of the other reviewers, I ain't no stranger to this classic British rock album. I have considered this to be one of the finest releases from the "classic era" of Whitesnake for the last 20 years or so, and I was keenly anticipating the remastered release of this album to complete the set of the recent 'Snake remasters (which in my opinion have been uniformly excellent).

I love this album not just because of the excellent songs, standard of playing and production of the original UK version, but also because (if you are like me and much prefer the earlier British blues rock era of the band) it illustrates the last great hurrah before David Coverdale turned his sights squarely on the US market, courtesy of David Geffen and John Kallodner in 1984. As a result, the US record company demanded a more radio-friendly mix for the US FM stations of the "just before MTV" era in the States. So we have two versions of "Slide It In" to enjoy - the original (and IMHO by far the best) UK version and the US remix. The US version has a Keith Olsen remix, guitar overdubs by John Sykes and re-recorded bass lines by Neil Murray. By this point, essential 'Snake members Mickey Moody and Jon Lord had already bailed out, taking major components of the classic Whitesnake sound with them.

This remastered package, contrary to the advertisement blurb, does NOT feature the complete remastered versions of both mixes. Instead, you get the US remix in its entirety and only 80% of the UK mix. This is no doubt due to the fact that EMI couldn't fit both versions onto an 80 minute CD.

By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER on 20 July 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic album,both mixes,bought both originally on vinyl,always preferred the UK mix(see separate review) although the USA mix with Sykes/Murray grafted on was pretty good too,although smoothed out to appease american radio.

The album you'll know houses classics such as 'Love Aint No Stranger/Slide It In/Slow n Easy/Gambler and Guilty Of Love ' etc,the original american track selection always took a bit of getting used to which brings me to the first bone of contention:

This release purports to be the american release with the UK mix as bonus,however the USA mix here does not replicate the track order of that on the original USA vinyl and as another reviewer has pointed out there a some differences between this mix and the original USA vinyl.

Secondly the UK mix misses out 'Hungry For Love' and unbelievably 'Love Aint No Stranger,had it been for time constraints then possibly you could except but its not, you get an acoustic version of LANS from the later release 'Starkers In Tokyo',a ridiculous decision,i also believe like a previous reviewer that the b side 'Need Your Love So Bad' is not actually that which was released in '84 but a later version.Also it should have included the Eddie Kramer 'mix' of first single 'Guilty Of Love'/'Gambler' if were compiling the definitive version!.All in all pretty shoddy,maybe the fans should be asked what they would like,so a star is docked.

The remaster is pretty decent to these ears although its not any better than the the 1988 original remaster(uk version)

Disc 2 is a dvd with live/promo videos and while nice to have the original promos,the repetition is irritating,3 versions of 'Love Aint No Stranger',that damned Tokyo version again!

25 years after it was released, this album finally gets the CD release it deserves. First of all, the packaging is beautiful and far more striking than the original LP sleeve. Secondly, the 24 page booklet is nice, full of quotes and anecdotes and plenty of pics. The audio quality of the CD is first rate - awesome infact - and it is easy to hear the massive difference that exists between the UK and US mixes. Whilst the UK mix is great, it really does sound unfinished and demo-like compared to the US one. On the US mix, Coverdale sounds like he's in the same room as you and not nextdoor! Yes the drums are noticeably different, but I'd say they sound punchier. John Sykes really makes a huge difference to the album and his much heavier guitar-style suits the songs and raises everything up a notch. The DVD features all the promos, plus a rarely seen performance from Top of the Pops from Januray 1984. All in all, I really cannot see (or hear) why anyone would be disappointed with this. I can fully recommend it.
