...for Zepheads and 'snake fans alike. This is a great, but often overlooked collaboration that really works. It's perhaps not quite as good as either Zeppelin or Whitesnake or Purple (Mk 3 & 4) in their pomp but, damn, it's close. If you can find it, check out the acoustic version of Take Me For A Little While (CD Single box set 7 2438 80687 2 7) which is even better than the album version.

Whoever Jeff Bateman is, I think we can ignore his assertion that Coverdale is a 'third-rate Plant'. For one thing, Coverdale's range was greater than Percy's, even from his Burn debut. For another, he is closer to Rodgers as a singer anyway. And let's also add that the Whitesnake songwriting template owes more to Lizzy, Free/Bad Co, and Purple (doh, wonder why that is...), than to Zeppelin. Slow an' Easy and Still of the Night owe something to Zep, admittedly, but the latter borrows a lot more from Purple's Rat Bat Blue than from Black Dog. Lyrically, though, Planty has shown a lot more breadth and imagination than Coverdale, whose lyrics on the new Whitesnake album are at times quite appalling! And Plant's stage presentation is classier - he certainly swears a lot less...

Apart from that, I would agree with the overview. This album aparkles more than the two Firm albums or Outrider, and the final track sees Coverdale at last tackling new lyrical ground. The ballads are moving, and the rock'n'roll excites. Although Coverdale's voice is hoarse at times, the ballads are somewhat complemented by that husky delivery.

Hats off to David Coverdale for bringing out the best in Jimmy Page ! This is something of a forgotten heavy rock classic with many highs such as "Shake my tree", "Pride and joy" the bluesy "Don't leave me this way" . There are a few dodgy moments (coverdales lyrics?) But the high point "take me for a little while" hints at what great possibilities the pair had if Page hadn't split for the anti climax of the Page/Plant re-union ?

Love this album. The combination of two extremely talented musicians lends itself to some of the best tracks ever.
