Please Coverdale! Not another live album, that was my first thought when I heard that Whitesnake was going to release 'Made in Britain / The World Record'. How many times can you milk money from the faithful fans with old songs from the age of a dinosaurs? Well, I wasn't so exited when I started listening on this double album as you can see, but I have to bite myself in the tounge after the first spin on the over two hours long journey of classy hard rock. I raise the white flag.

This is two world class live albums! The new songs from 'Forevermore' and 'Good to be Bad' are spicing up the dish really well. In February the 'Made In Japan' disc was released and the bands line-up was complete with the return of Tommy Aldridgre on the drums in January 13. The guitarists are still Doug Aldrich and Reb Beach, on the bass Michael Devin and Brian Ruedy on the keyboard completes the line-up. Ohh I forgot; David Coverdale is vocalist if anyone didn't know. I grew up with most of these fantastic songs and I really love to be standing in the crowd and sing a long with these tunes, but to get same feelings on a album isn't an easy job.

Coverdale is a true British gentleman and is an outstanding frontman of the band, with his small talk between the songs. 'Here is a song for Ya!!' is a classic line from the 62 year old rock icon. I can't bother to sort the tracks out, but I like these two albums and will most likely play them as loud as I can when I get my friends over and the beer drinking season starts (read: when the wife is out of town).

A party without Whitesnake is a boring one. As I mention earlier on; this is a big and nice collection of oldies and new classic rock songs from the duo Coverdale/Aldrich. If I must say one track that is special, it has to be 'Forevermore'!

'Made In Britain / The World Record is a great alternative to a sleepy, boring 'Greatest Hits' album. This hungry snake is still biting and moving forward.
