Shame because Coverdale's voice on Trouble is excellent, more emotion and more organic.

      1987, much like Good To Be Bad just doesn't feel like Whitesnake. It is for all intents and purposes a different band. Thats not to say that 1987 doesn't have any good songs, simply that it is A) outclassed by the earlier albums as evidenced with B) two of the strongest songs on the album are rerecordings of old tracks.
      For me "Whitesnake" (to give 1987 it's proper name) marked the second step down a long slippery staircase for Coverdale & Whitesnake... "Slide It In" being the first with the appalling "Slow And Easy" & "Spit It Out".

      Even so I think Trouble was a low point in Coverdale's early post DP career. I loved "Northwinds" and "Snakebite" but "Trouble" just lacked a little magic despite DC being in fine form.

      I loved the "Lovehunter"/ "Ready & Willing"/"Come An Get It" trilogy... loathed "Saints & Sinners" apart from the infinitely superior original "Here I Go Again' & "Crying In The Rain"... thought the non Sykes "Slide It In" was solid but the Zep influences were getting to strong... The "Whitesnake" album had a moment or two, especially "Looking For Love"... and "Slip Of The Tongue" was a fucking dead dog from start to finish. "Restless Heart" was even worse.

      Isn't there a Whitesnake thread somewhere? Yeah, this turned into one...

      • Monday's quick order arrived yesterday...

        Slayer
        - Decade Of Aggression - Live 2CD (I love the good old double CD case!)
        - Chris Illusion special edition

        One of my 2 backorders arrived today...

        Gary Moore (remasters)
        - Corridors Of Power
        - Victims Of The Future
        - Run For Cover
        - Wild Frontier
        - After The War

        ZZ Top
        - Eliminator (the old CD pressing)

        -------------------------------------------------------

        What comes to the notorious & evil fun of the album number #666 I was talking about...I could have planned this thoroughly to get a certain album to have the running number #666 in my collections, but instead I just made regular purchases and let the destiny form on its own...

        With these latest cash purchases, quick orders and 2 back orders it can get a bit confusing as to what album gets the number, added that some albums arrive in a bundle...So I'm not deciding the number by purchase, I'm deciding it by which order the albums emerge from the packaging to further join my collection...As I opened today's packaging and took the albums out, it was Gary Moore's Wild Frontier that became the number #666 in my collections...Ironically, the first song on my first ever C-cassette collection back in late 1989 was the first song from this very album, Over The Hills And Far Away...

            It was on sale and although I couldn't stand "Is This Love", the rerecorded songs got me curious. as did John Sykes on guitar. The album is is best summed up to me as a Coverdale/Sykes album as opposed to Whitesnake. The direction of the album is certainly very 80's - though not in (what I would consider) a good way.

            Sabbathman - you were right about the quality of the remastering, it sounds excellent and is how remastering should be done (Megadeth & Judas Priest take note!). Doesn't hurt that the songwriting and performances are great either.
            You coul dmake an argument that the original WHITESNAKE was actually Deep Purple MKV, after Tommy Bolin left, wasn't Coverdale Lord and Paice all in th eoriginal band? FOOL FOR YOUR LOVIN' was very Purple sounding, and I still like the original better than the remake.

              No, Paice & Lord didn't join up straight away...

                Exactly. Purple disbanded in 1976 and the first version of Whitesnake was created in 1978. Jon Lord joined the third version of the band and recorded the first album ("Trouble") with them, and Paice joined the band about a year later for the recording of "Lovehunter".

                  "Ready an' Willing" was actually the first album Paice played on. It was Dave Dowle on "Lovehunter", but he was replaced by Paice before the album got released.

                              or me "Whitesnake" (to give 1987 it's proper name) marked the second step down a long slippery staircase for Coverdale & Whitesnake... "Slide It In" being the first with the appalling "Slow And Easy" & "Spit It Out".

                              I can't comment on "Slide It In", "Slip of the Tongue", "Restless Heart" or "Come 'An Get It " as I have not heard them but I find "Trouble" to be enjoyable (except for the cover of "Day Tripper" ) - more so with the bonus tracks from the "Snakebite EP". I also rate "Lovehunter/Ready & Willing" highly along with the "Live In The Heart Of The City".
