The deal includes classic Whitesnake tracks like "Here I Go Again", "Crying In the Rain", "Fool For Your Loving", "Is This Love", "Still Of the Night", "Slow an' Easy", and material Coverdale contributed to during his three-album stint with Deep Purple in the 1970s - including 1974's "Burn" and "Stormbringer", and 1975's "Come Taste The Band."
"I am thrilled beyond words to joyfully announce that my existing catalog of works, both songs and master recordings, which I have been involved in creating for over 50 years, is now in exceptionally safe hands with the fine people at Round Hill," says Coverdale. "I look forward immensely to working together with Josh Gruss and all at Round Hill to ensure the legacy of my existing works for future generations to enjoy."more.
