The group's sixth album delivered their fourth UK Top 10 set and their commercial breakthrough in the US thanks to singles like "Slow an' Easy", "Love Ain't No Stranger" and the title track.
As Whitesnake scored massive US success with their self-titled 1987 record, "Slide It In" returned to the charts Stateside on its way to double-platinum status for sales of more than 2 million copies in the country.
A 2019 remaster of the "Slide It In" will be available in all versions, including a 2CD Deluxe Edition featuring US and UK mixes plus bonus tracks, a single CD (US Mix), and a 2LP vinyl edition.
"'Slide It In' was always meant to be a structured, more electric modern take on the classic blues-based hard rock that Whitesnake were famous for," explains Coverdale. "Hearing all the performances so fresh and so clear after 35 years was amazing. Mel [Galley], Cozy [Powell] and Jon's playing on the record is as vital now as it was all those years ago. All the featured players shine ... I'm personally thrilled with it." Watch the video here.
