Live in ’84 Back to tHe Bone

Guitar Techniques - - Music Reviews -

David Coverdale is a firm be­liever in ac­knowl­edg­ing the an­niver­saries of Whites­nake’s piv­otal al­bums. Amaz­ingly it’s been 30 years since the re­lease of Slide It In so in cel­e­bra­tion the live show from 1984 has been reis­sued. It’s a Deluxe CD/DVD ver­sion that in­cludes demos, bootlegs, rare videos and audio record­ings. It’s a trea­sure trove of ma­te­rial from the clas­sic line-up of John Sykes on gui­tar, Neil Mur­ray on bass and Cozy Pow­ell on drums, but if that’s not enough it also in­cludes Jon Lord’s fi­nal per­for­mance with the band. This is a lov­ingly re­stored and en­hanced re­lease that will thrill Whites­nake fans ev­ery­where. But it’s also an in­ter­est­ing look into the work­ings of the band at the time, and another chance to en­joy this mu­sic taken from Coverdale’s per­sonal ar­chives. Ev­ery ef­fort has been made to pro­vide the best sound and video qual­ity and that’s re­ally paid off. Check out John Sykes’ solo on Love Ain’t No Stranger, his gui­tar ac­ro­bat­ics on his spot­light fea­ture and the sheer force of Ready An’ Will­ing all on the DVD. Great to see Jon Lord on keys with the band in Las Ve­gas too, mak­ing this is a real col­lec­tor’s gem.
