Whitesnake 1987 20th Anniversary Edition

Whitesnake 1987 Anniversary Edition cover

EMI has set a May 31 North American release date for Whitesnake 1987: 20 Anniversary Collector’s Edition. The edition includes CD and DVD and will be packaged in a fold out digipack with PVC slipcase with sleeve notes written by Geoff Barton of Classic Rock magazine.

Originally released in 1987, the album hit No. 8 in the U.K. charts and went on to sell a eight million copies worldwide. The album also spawned three hit singles: Still of the Night, remake of Here I Go Again and Is This Love (a.k.a. Is This A Jaguar Covered With A Scantily Clad Tawny Kitaen). The CD features the original European album (with two more tracks than its American counterpart) and four bonus tracks taken from Live…In the Shadows of the Blues. The DVD features four videos, all of which got huge airplay on MTV at the time of release; which may have been influenced by the ample charms of aforementioned Ms. Kitaen; and four live performances from the Live, In the Still of the Night concert.

You can preorder this through our Amazon shop.

01. Still of the Night
02. Bad Boys
03. Give Me All Your Love
04. Looking for Love

    I assume it will be. I’ve got the original CD version and hopefully, this new one will be clearer and louder!

    Apart from it being remastered…..why is it a special collectors edition?????

    If they wanted it to be a “Special Collectors” edition then why don’t they release it with something that we don’t all have already. Why not a live set from the 1987 tour or at least some highlights of it.
    I think that this is a money spinning rip off and i won’t be purchasing a copy of it.

    If this gets remastered too (it better be) that will also mean that Slide It In gets left out. That’s supposed to be the nest alnum to be remastered right? I hope that becomes a 2 CD Set containing both US and UK versions.

    Anyway back to 1987. It better be remastered otherwise there’s not much point in me buying this apart from the commentary by Geoff Barton.

    This will be remastered. I hope the DVD is released in NTSC format for the US. $41 is too much for the import. Slide It In is rumored to be next on the list with Slip Of The Tongue being a possibility, too. SOTT would be great with some Vandenburg studio extras.

    I asked about the remastering because the original is one of my favourite albums but has the most CRAP production of any of my top 50 albums!!

    The drum sound is terrible, the rhythm guitar drowns out the solos and the bass??? Neil Murray’s wonderful basslines are..um… where exactly? Can’t hear them!!

    They better get the greatest remasterer in the world to fix up this one…

    I know the album was designed with Cozy Powell in mind and he left at the last minute, and Sykes was finishing his solos with Coverdale banging on the door of the studio to give him the keys to the car back, but still…
