NEWS: Whitesnake Live 1984 – “Super Rock 84” DVD & “Snakeskin Boots – Best Of Bootlegs” CD

3 Ott

In uscita il 7 novembre materiale d’archivio degli WHITESNAKE, quelli veri, quelli che piacciono a noi. Trattasi di materiale live del tour di SLIDE IT IN, album che abbiamo vissuto intensamente sin dall’uscita, trent’anni fa. Album che, come scrisse BEPPE RIVA su Rockerilla all’epoca, vedeva Coverdale prendere il gruppo e spingerlo a  suonare come i LED ZEPPELIN di PHYSICAL GRAFFITI. Il tutto uscirà per la New Frontiers Music in due versioni: semplice DVD e deluxe edition con DVD e CD. Sarà un autunno caldo.

On  November 7 some archival material of WHITESNAKE will be released, we are talkin’ about the real WHITESNAKE, the one that we love. This is live material of the SLIDE IT IN 1984 tour, an album that we lived intensely since the release, thirty years ago. Album that, as BEPPE RIVA wrote on Rockerilla at the time, saw Coverdale take the group and push it to sound like LED ZEPPELIN’s PHYSICAL GRAFFITI. Everything will come out via  New Frontiers Music in two versions: simple DVD and deluxe edition with DVD+ CD. It will be a hot autumn.

WHITESNAKE fans worldwide now have something to be excited about! To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of WHITESNAKE’s multi-platinum ‘Slide It In’ album, Frontiers Music Srl, the Italian-based label, will release “Live In ‘84 – Back To The Bone”, a complete celebration of the group’s awe inspiring lineup during what many feel was the incredible beginning of what Coverdale called his desire to make Whitesnake more ‘electrifying’ on record & on stage.

Set for release in the EU on November 7th and in North America on November 11th, this release will be available in DVD and a Deluxe CD/DVD edition.

Culled from audio and video recordings & unheard demos from the private collection of WHITESNAKE leader and vocalist, David Coverdale, the release offers an ultra-rare collection of material, performed by the band’s acclaimed 83-84 line-ups. Featured on the record & driven by the awesome Cozy Powell on drums (ex- Jeff Beck Group, Rainbow, MSG and later on Gary Moore and Black Sabbath, among others); Unique guitarist John Sykes, whom Coverdale credits with inspiring a whole generation of six stringers after his breathtaking work on the WHITESNAKE ’87’ album & Bassist Exceptionale Neil Murray.

There is also an extraordinary emotional bonus content featuring legendary keyboardist Jon Lord performing his last show ever with WHITESNAKE on video & also the bonus CD.

“It’s still hard for me to find the words when remembering that half the incredible band who originally recorded the ‘Slide It In’ album with me have passed away,” says Coverdale. “It’s incredibly difficult to articulate: Cozy Powell…Mel Galley…Jon Lord…All amazing people and amazing musicians. Their memories live on in our hearts & in the music they made. I miss them beyond words… Wait until you see & hear them playing as only they can and add in the fiery guitar assault of the incredibly gifted John Sykes, plus the relentless melodic bass pounding of Neil Murray.”

Coverdale and co-producer Michael McIntyre launched a worldwide search for the best quality video footage and audio tracks from the 1984 tour. Among the gems found was a set from: ‘Super-Rock’, recorded at the first Japanese rock festival at Seibu Stadium in Tokyo and an invaluable video of Jon Lord’s final appearance with WHITESNAKE recorded live in Sweden. “All of the features on this package have been treated lovingly & respectfully, with no expense spared, utilizing technology to improve sound & picture quality,” says Coverdale, who personally oversaw all elements of this release.

Concludes Coverdale, “These are memories I treasure and delight in sharing with you as we continue our celebration of the 30th Anniversary of WHITESNAKE’s ‘Slide It In.”
