The Snakes' Once Bitten...


Tracked this one down as a very pricey Japanese import and I am wondering whether it is worth it or not. I know that most of the tracks have been rerecorded with Stefan Berrgren for the more recent Burst The Bubble (which I do have and enjoyed quite a lot) but since I am a huge Jorn Lande fan (recently converted emoticon) I am seriously tempted in forking out for it... Has anyone here got it and how does it compare to the Company Of Snakes album?

I have both and I'm just listening to "Once Bitten...". In my opinion it is the better album of both. Especially Jorn's voice gives you the feeling of listening to a lost Whitesnake album...

I think there are 6 out of 13 songs on both records. But also this songs are a little bit different, cause you have less keyboards on "Once Bitten..."

And if you don't buy it, you miss a ballad written only by Lande ("Showdown") that is really great...

I have a great MP3 of the Snakes live in Europe - though I can't remember when/where it was done. It was my first (and only) introduction to the Company of Snakes and Lande - and I thought it sounded more like Coverdale than Coverdale does! emoticon A great live performance of classic WS!

6 out of 13 songs on both is not too bad, I can live with that. Hell, I've spent 20 quid just to get Rainbow's SIUA with ONE extra track, at least for this one you get slightly more value for your money! emoticon

Real Faith

and my favorite: Showdown

Erm I hate to brake this to you now and I hope it isn't bad news and isn't a lot cheeper, but on Bernie Marsden's home page www.berniemarsden.co.uk you can get the Snakes Once Bitten for £14 and the man himself will sign your copy for no extra charge. I haven't got it yet cause I only just found it last night, but I definitely plan to (or put it on my Xmas list emoticon ). The live record is also available, hope your not hitting yourself mate!

Doh! emoticon You're right of course, Bernie's site has it for £12.99 where as sodding Amazon has made me pay £22.99 for it! At least I'll know better next time, that live album with Jorn Lande looks very tempting indeed, especially at that price...

Well I hope Once Bitten was worth/ will be worth the money! Let me know! I do intend to buy it in the not too distant future!
