Is there an audio track missing on your copy of Slip Of The Tongue ?

Re: Slide it in 25


Got my copies today as well. Watched some of the videos (the Donington 1990 stuff is interesting and nicely cut together) but not listened to the audio yet. Don't think they had room on the Slide It In disk to include everything which is a shame, although they could have added MP3s to the DVD (of the missing tracks, the Kramer mixes and the better version of Need Your Love so bad).

Nicely presented though. Will listen later tonight.

Yes- I'm missing Judgement Day Live- but its a version I have anyway so am not going to bother returning the CD. I must say though that the remasters of 1987, Slide It In and SOTT are beautifully packaged. Credit where its due- DC has pulled out the stops with these. Its a shame they didn't come up with the CD/DVD idea whith the 1st set of remasters- then we could have had the Snakebite videos on DVD along with Trouble!!

Well, that's a new idea for yet another re-re-re release...

Re: Slide it in 25


Haven't paid much attention to SII before but have had the UK version for ages.
The new remaster really open my mind on this one, got to say I like it.
Which of the UK and US mix is the "best" among long time fans?

I still think they should have released it as a 2CD package BUT with full UK mix. For me, a long time and faitful fan (even after 1987), there's no excuse for ommitting 2 original album tracks and the original UK mix of Need Your Love So Bad as that was the basic album and probably one of the best Coverdale albums ever. Still, it seems that Coverdale cares much more for his US fans. It's sad.

Re: Slide it in 25


Now that I've got the 25th Anniversary Edition of SII, I can only agree with you, SN. It makes no sense (except for DC I'm sure) that the full UK mix is not included. It does still sound superior to these ears. One example where Sykes' guitar goes overboard is Standing in the Shadows. The song loses its 'blues' quality (which is always possible when DC is behind the mic).

Otherwise, I'm quite pleased with the release. It was interesting to hear the US mix in full for the first time.

EDIT: It's actually very nice to hear these familiar songs with alternative guitar solos!

I don't really see a point in including Starkers & L...ITSOTN material yet another time, but I guess that's easier than digging up archive material and polishing it up.

The packaging is top notch.

I first got the UK mix, and therefor, for me it's the "real" one.
The feeling on the US mix is quite the same, but some added guitar licks and keyboards here and there are somehow useless (IMHO).There's enough of that on the next WS albums to keep SII in its original version.

Re: Slide it in 25


Arrived today...now listening to the US mix for the first time ever. What a treat - like having a new Whitesnake album! I can't remember if I ever replaced SII after my CD collection was stolen 10 years ago, so it's a looooooong time since I've heard this album. As I listen, I seem to recall favouring Side 1 of the LP when it was first released. The UK mixes are about to start...ah, the nostalgia emoticon.

Re: Slide it in 25


Got the 25th a week ago, and my verdict: YAY! Everything sounds outstanding. I'd never hear the U.K. mix before, and to me the U.S. mix of Gambler is inferior.

I'd been told that Cozy was a bit more up in the mix on the U.K., but he sounds terrific on each.

Love Ain't No Stranger, Slow 'N Easy, All or Nothing...those are just classic songs. I used to look at the title track as being a bit like Kiss, but with the remastered sound it sounds way better these days...FUN!

Got a real kick out of the booklet as well.

Great reissue of the ultimate Whitesnake full length album..their best full length by far, in my humble opinion. One can hear how several of these songs got reworked and amped up for the 1987 album.

Would love to have this kind of treatment done on Live...In the Heart of the City.
