OK, So Where Should I Start?


I think it's about time for me to explore Whitesnake's golden era, I've stayed away from them because until I came to THS I thought they were always a big hair 80s style girlie-rock outfit.

So, which album(s) would any of you recommend getting first?.

Most people will recommend. Ready An´Willing. I has the original(and better) version of Fool For Your Lovin´ on it.
Come An´Get It is another fine record. Don´t Break My Heart Again and Wine, Women And Song are true classics.
Then there´s Lovehunter and that one you definitly should have just for Walking In The Shadow Of The Blues. Possibly the best Whitesnake song!

My personal favourite is Saints´n´Sinners, though. Not many seem to like it but for me it´s the best. It has originals of Crying In The Rain and (an absolutly gorgeous) Here I Go Again.

You shouldn´t miss out the live album "Live...In The Heart Of The City" which is one of the best purple releated live albums(my favourite along with Burning Japan Live), as it´s good all you need(and very good performances mostly better than the originals).

So, Lovehunter and Ready´n´Willing are essential studio albums. Live...In The Heart Of The City a MUSTGET and Saints´n´Sinners my personal tip for you!emoticon

Thanks, I seem to remember seeing Saints 'n' Sinners on vinyl quite cheap recently, have to get a new stylus though. emoticon

I assume they're quite rare so there's little chance of getting the others on vinyl, are the CD transfers good?.

RS - Milan's already pre-emptied most of what I was going to say!

First off, I'm delighted more folk are interested in finding out what WS were like before they went 'glam' - a very different sound back then, and rather like DP, their earlier live performances were a big improvement on the LPs, but there's still a lot of good stuff available, from 'back when they were a real band'! emoticon

Ready an' Willing is a must, as is LITHOTC. If you like those, then I'll let others direct you as to their favourites from the rest of their output - personally, I'd go for Come an' Get It before Saints and Sinners.

I don´t have a WS vinyl but I´ve seen S&S in my local record store quite cheap as well!emoticon

Therefore I can´t tell for the transfer, yet but the production could be better for sure(that´s one thing that makes LITHOTC so special, the sound of the songs is mostly better than on the studio outputs, but find that out yourself).

They´re not that rare methinks. On CD maybe, espcially Trouble was brutally hard to find for me on CD while the vinyl(with the cool cover) jumped at me on various occasions.

You're right, I've found a place where I can get a copy of Come An' Get It that used to belong to Runcorn Public Library!. Very cheap and quite a good selection, no LITHOTC though.

You´ll find that one as well. I have to get that Double LP as well as it has an extra track(the opening song Come On from a different venue) which didn´t fit on the single cd.

On closer inspection it is there...and quite a few copies too.

I'll have to order it tomorrow. emoticon

The man at the hospital said so too...and he gave me a coat especially for funny people, it's quite stylish but the sleeves don't have holes in the end and they're tied to the back so it can be quite inconvenient at times.

I should have enough for LITHOTC, Saints 'n' Sinners and both Come An' Get It and Ready An' Willing to almost complete my essential Whitesnake collection in one fell swoop and all on vinyl to boot emoticon . Love Hunter is £10 and can be saved for next month.
