Whitesnake - The Early Years Tracklist


1. Walking In The Shadow Of Blues
2. Sweet Talker
3. Would I Lie To You
4. Trouble
5. Gambler
6. Love Hunter
7. Don't Break My Heart Again
8. Ready An' Willing
9. Child Of Babylon
10. Here I Go Again
11. Carry Your Load
12. Rough An' Ready
13. Wine Women An' Song
14. Lie Down I Think I Love You
15. Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City (Live)
16. Fool For Your Loving (Live)

Good choice of tracks (IMHO).

Yes I know it's ANOTHER Whitesnake compilation with nothing new or rare, but at budget price well worth it.

Yeah, the choice of tracks is more or less spot on. I don't know if I'll buy it but it is nice to have a collection out there for fans of the Moody/Marsden era.

Re: Whitesnake - The Early Years Tracklist


There should've been a compilation like this done long ago, if one wasn't. The best era of any band should be represented.
I won't be getting it myself, as I have all the vinyl + cassettes, anyway. If it had some sort of bonuses - previously unreleased studio + live work, outtakes, rarities, etc.,etc. I'd doubtless feel differently about it.
Still, it looks like something worth picking up for anyone interested in the best era of Whitesnake who's either just getting into them, or as a filler for gaps in one's Whitesnake collection of music 'til they can get the albums, cassettes or cds.
I'm curious now - have any of Whitesnake's first 6 or 7 releases been remastered or reissued on cd lately? Or is that project still pending?
Now that I think of it, is this the remastered versions of the songs listed? And if so, is it a "faithful" remastering? By that I mean, is it done properly, or just being called that for profit?

There already was one like this,many years ago called "The Very Best Of Whitesnake" and it had a black&white photo of DC on the sleeve,where he's having a cigarette.Think it was a Geffen album.

Was there? Well, that's good LesliesScream. I don't recall ever seeing it, but if I did, my sentiments were probably the same about getting it as they are about this one. Nice to know someone in the music biz was on the ball a while ago, though.

Re: Whitesnake - The Early Years Tracklist


I'm eagerly awaiting re-masters of the early years before I put any more money into Whitesnake material that I already own with one exception.

There is an item on Amazon.com that claims it is a remaster of "Ready an Willing". I'll be purchasing that soon. Anyone know if this is
a good re-master or not? Here is the blurb off Amazon:

"French reissue of 1980 album. Remastered with four bonus tracks 'Mean Business', 'Nighthawk' (Vampire Blues), 'Don't Mess with Me' and 'We Wish You Well'. Picture disc features original artwork and comes packaged in a slip case with new artwork. Slipcase edition also includes French, English booklet which includes a biography of the band. 13 tracks. 2000 release. Standard jewel case."

And, one of the reviewers said:

"This album marks as the keystone of the old Whitesnake. Blues Metal as we called it was born into the Marsden, Moody guitars and Coverdale wailing. I like this LP because there is all the finest qualities of Deep Purple (with the exception of Ritchie Blackmore and Ian Gillan), mixed with the blues of Marsden-Moody guitars. This CD is a MUST for any Purple-Whitesnake fan. I have heard other versions of this cd that did not have the sound quality that this music deserves, but this French remake sounds exellent! GET IT NOW!!!"

Ready an Willing is my favorite of the early years and I love "We Wish You Well". I just wish Whitesnake had a longer version of this track.

Yeah, I got that one, a bit of an odd release as the bonus tracks come from different studio albums. It was assumed at the time it was a bootleg (David also mentioned this) but it isn't, EMI simply licensed it out to some other (French I think) company that put it out. Sounds the same as the original CD I got to be honest, if you have that one I doubt you'll be needing this.

Apparently We Wish You Well was re-recorded during the Slip Of The Tongue sessions, but has never seen the light of day.

If you're looking for a longer version, then it was also recorded in 1979 by a session band called Company (featuring Marsden, Lord, Murray and Paice). It's quite rare I think - I've got a copy of it emoticon
