NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Classic WHITESNAKE Fans Worldwide Have Something To Be Truly Excited About!!!
To celebrate and commemorate the 30th Anniversary of WHITESNAKE's multi-platinum 'SLIDE IT IN' album, Frontiers Music Srl has released "LIVE IN '84 - BACK TO THE BONE", a complete celebration of the group's awe inspiring touring lineup during what many feel was the beginning of what COVERDALE called his desire to make WHITESNAKE more 'electrifying' on record and on stage.
The 'LIVE IN 84' CD and DVD release features audio and video recordings, unheard demos and unseen photos from the private collection of WHITESNAKE leader and vocalist, DAVID COVERDALE. Featured on the record are the awesome COZY POWELL on drums (ex- Jeff Beck Group, Rainbow, MSG and later on Gary Moore and Black Sabbath, among others), unique virtuoso guitarist JOHN SYKES, whom Coverdale credits with inspiring a whole generation of six stringers after his breathtaking work on the WHITESNAKE '87' album, and bassist NEIL MURRAY. Also included is heart-stopping bonus content featuring legendary keyboardist JON LORD (Deep Purple) performing his very last show with WHITESNAKE on video and also on the bonus CD.
"It's still hard for me to find the words when remembering that half of the incredible band who originally recorded the 'SLIDE IT IN' album with me have passed away," says COVERDALE. "It's incredibly difficult to articulate: COZY POWELL...MEL GALLEY...JON LORD…All amazing people and exceptional musicians performing at their best. Their memories live on in our hearts & in the music they made. I miss them beyond words."
To put this together, COVERDALE and Co-Producer MICHAEL McINTYRE launched a worldwide search for the best quality video footage and audio tracks from the 1984 tour. "All of the features on this package have been treated lovingly & respectfully, with no expense spared, utilizing technology to improve sound & picture quality," says COVERDALE.
Concludes COVERDALE, "These are memories I treasure and delight in sharing with you as we continue our celebration of the 30th ANNIVERSARY of WHITESNAKE's multi-platinum album 'SLIDE IT IN."
