Live - In The Shadow Of The Blues
Released: Jan 2007
Label: Dragonshead Music, Inc.
To the Wayback Machine, Sherman! The year: 1986. The place: Wembley Stadium. The band: Whitesnake! Actually, this double-disc live album was recorded over the course of the reinvigorated hair-metal masters' post-millennial tours, making for a weird, black t-shirt-clad tear in the space-time continuum. David Coverdale is over 50 but still screeching like a horny hyena, new guitarist Doug Aldrich brings the trashy swagger you'd expect and the rest of the band is tighter than sweaty spandex on all their arena-rocking hits. "Here I Go Again" remains the blustery epic you remember, and four new studio songs preview Whitesnake's 2007 release.
