Solo Coverdale remasters


I spotted a copy of Northwinds remastered (two bonus tracks) in my rather seedy local record shop. Since I've already bought the original album three times (LP, cassette and CD), is the remaster of this (and indeed of Whitesnake) worth the dosh?? emoticon

You betcha. I haven't got the original CDs but the remasters are worth buying if only for the extra material, especially on Northwinds the two extra tracks are sensational.

I didn't own the originals.....but the remasters of Northwinds is well worth it, and yes the extra unrealsed track (is it one or two) is really good....not just a first take of one already on the album.

What I find very amusing is that the production on the two bonus tracks on Northwinds is better than the proper album, the vocals cut through the mix really like a knife... Very weird. If you like Northwinds this one's an essential purpose, Sweet Mistreater in particular is an awesome track.

Re: Solo Coverdale remasters


thanks for the great info!

Do you know if the double CD is fully re-mastered (both the Whitesnake and the Northwinds content)?

I'll definitely be picking this one up. Hole in the Sky is one of my all time fav DC tracks.
