Classic Whitesnake Concert Set For Live Release
Available on DVD and Deluxe CD/DVD packages, the project is being issued in sync with the 30th Anniversary of Whitesnake's multi-platinum "Slide It In" album.
"Live In '84" has been culled from audio and video recordings and unheard demos from the private collection of Whitesnake leader and vocalist David Coverdale. The set presents an ultra-rare collection of material performed by the band's acclaimed 83-84 line-ups.
Featured on the record are drummer Cozy Powell (Jeff Beck Group, Rainbow, MSG, Gary Moore, Black Sabbath), bassist Neil Murray and guitarist John Sykes, whom Coverdale credits with inspiring a whole generation of musicians after his work on the band's 1987 self-titled album.
Bonus content includes legendary keyboardist Jon Lord performing his last show ever with Whitesnake. "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 and in the music they made. I miss them beyond words… Wait until you see and 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."
