Title - 'Slip of the Tongue [EXTRA TRACKS]' (Geffen/UMe)
Artist - Whitesnake
Whitesnake had just come off the major mainstream success of there 1987 album and were riding the storm of fame and glory. It was no easy task for them to follow-up with a as good or better album. They brought in super guitar hero/legend Steve Vai, which just made things a whole lot wicked, as he ended up recording all guitar parts on the album, which really gives the album a spark that the 1987 album didn't have.
As for the songs they're all fantastic, none of them miss, they're all straight shooters and are filled with tons (and I mean tons) of ear candy, courtesy of Steve Vai. The band sounds tight and I never believed the others who said that Steve didn't fit...although I understand there argument.
This CD + DVD edition features deluxe packaging with a 24-page booklet, featuring rare & unpublished photos and archive memorabilia Includes 6 bonus tracks, including rare b-sides and alternative mixes, plus 2 previously unreleased live versions from Castle Donington 1990.
The remastering on here is a major, major contribution to making the record shine like never before. The packaging is awesome too. This is a must-have for any Whitesnake or Steve Vai fan. I've found myself listening to this remaster every single day now in its entirety. Simply brilliant! [AMC]
