This is one of the worst "Greatest Hits" albums Whitesnake have put out. Why ? It's because so many classic Whitesnake songs are missing on here. Where is the live favourite "Aint No Love In The Heart Of The City" ?. "Dont Break My Heart Again" ? "Ready An Willing" ?. The album does not feature enough of Whitesnakes early work and features too much of latter 80's albums 1987, and Slip Of The Tongue. If you are looking a introduction to Whitesnake buy "The Best of Whitesnake" instead. Dont waste money on this poor effort.

Whitesnake's Greatest Hits CD album released 1994 on the EMI label has 14 songs from the albums: Slide It In (1984), 1987 (1987), and, Slip of the Tongue (1989). David Coverdale (vocals) is the only constant-member. Guitars by John Sykes, and Steve Vai. Drums by Cozy Powell, Aynsley Dunbar, and Tommy Aldridge. Keyboards by Jon Lord, and Don Airey. The videos featured Tawny Kitaen. This is a great compilation featuring: Still of the Night, Here I Go Again, Is This Love, Love Ain't No Stranger, Looking for Love, Now You're Gone, Slide it In, Slow an' Easy, Judgement Day, You're Gonna Break My Heart Again, The Deeper the Love, Crying in the Rain, Fool for Your Loving, and, Sweet Lady Luck. Features an informative booklet. This is my favourite Whitesnake compilation. This is one of the greatest melodic-rock albums of all-time! Award 5 Stars!

This greatest hits was aimed squarely at the fans of the 'NEW' Whitesnake and as such only covered the period 84 to 89,why other reviewers cant grasp that is beyond me,as far as good old USA was concerned the band might as well not have existed pre '84,so its not a shock that the track listing is skewed to the time period concerned.

As regards the music all the expected big tracks and hit singles are here,its actually a fantastic compiliation of modern era tracks,at the time the incentive to buy for the uk fan was the inclusion of 'Love Aint No Stranger/Slide It In & Slow n Easy' from the US version of SLIDE IT IN,plus the original radio mix of 'Here I Go Again and the non album track 'Sweet Lady Luck'.

The albums pretty redundant now as all the remasters/deluxe editions have collected up the hard to find tracks and i believe only 'Here I Go Again' remains exclusive to this release.Thus its not a compulsory purchase anymore but an excellent one for the car all the same,slide it in,turn it up and enjoy the quality music contained.

It has to be said that David Coverdale has an excellent voice, and so many good tunes on this cd.
My favorite WS album has to be 1987 and there are some tracks from that album on this greatest hits.
This album is heavy and solid and so many good tracks showing Coverdales vocal ranges.
You will find this a superb addition to your cd collection, so just buy it.....

Very surprised im an old Heavy metal fan;but some of these songs will be around if to-days young get to hear them cos there songs that stick.Here i go again the special one but the cd well worth the money.I now like more Modern Country but still like to hear good heavy music too.Movie mars a very good seller.My taste in Music Varies Super Tramp another Favorite but i rate this an excellent buy 100%satifaction greatband great sound plus its songs you could sing at Kareoke yep you may sound a Fool but hey its fun.Certainly better than some of to-days Rap;Hip hop;which really doesnt require a lot of talent as the music is made for the Artist/s who only really speak and not sing.Yep i sound like an Old Fart but i still like folk who can play instruments Whitesnake can if youre a woman and youre Hubby liked Rock Im sure he would like it at xmas or birthday;Then he can listern while you shop avoid the arguments common cause most of us men hate the Asda/Tesco etc Run anyway.
