Slide it in on red vinyl

whitesnake slide it in red vinyl

Whitesnake’s Slide It In will be released on red vinyl via Rhino/Warner on both sides of the Atlantic on April 10. The 2LP set will contain the 35th anniversary remix previously released on Disc 3 of the Super Deluxe set from early 2019).

Slide It In was always meant to be a structured, more electric modern take on the classic blues-based hard rock that Whitesnake were famous for, but our new Hook City Hooligan, Mixer Extraordinaire Christopher Collier, has hand-tooled this classic record for the 21st century,” says David Coverdale. “Hearing all the performances so fresh and so clear after 35 years was amazing. Mel, Cozy and Jon’s playing on the record is as vital now as it was all those years ago. All the featured players shine. Not only did Christopher get the best out of the recording, but he gives the album a fresh coat of sonic paint bringing it right up to date. I’m personally thrilled with it.

    I already got the 35th Anniversary on Vinyl last year specifically for both versions but I have never heard this remix that was in the Super Duper Deluxe Set. Was the remix in that set a remix of each version, and if not, which one? Based on the quote I am going to assume that this is a Remix of the European edition spread out over 2 discs @ 45RPM. Would you agree or is it both versions on the 2 discs? And if you have heard it, is it worth getting?

    No mention of Micky … and for good reason too. He sounded distraught on that album and was uncomfortable on stage as well. Cozy and Colin didn’t gel either, especially live. And while Mel was fine with his rhythmic playing in Trapeze, he had none of Bernie Marsden’s fluid melodic capability when soloing. The whole line up was flawed from day one – even before John Sykes joined – and it was gratingly obvious as Murray/Paice/Marsden/Moody/Lord had been hellishly tight. How anybody with ears could believe for even a second that Powell and Hodkinson could form a rhythm section, is beyond me.

    Nope, German model. She was terrified by the (live) snake hence the frozen expression. And as her face wasn’t planned to go on the cover, it wasn’t made up.
