Album of the Day
Slide it In (Ultimate Edition)
Whitesnake scored its first platinum-selling album in 1984 with SLIDE IT IN, a release that has sold more than six million copies worldwide thanks to hard-rocking songs like "Love Ain't No Stranger," "Slow An' Easy" and the title track. The album turns 35 this year and in honor of the anniversary, a 6-CD/1-DVD version has just been released. The Ultimate Special Edition includes newly remastered versions of both the U.K. and U.S. mixes of the album plus unreleased live and studio recordings, music videos, concert footage and a new interview with Whitesnake founder and frontman David Coverdale. As the singer notes, "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, but our new Hook City Hooligan, Mixer Extraordinaire Christopher Collier, has hand-tooled this classic record for the 21st century."
