30th Anniversary of WHITESNAKE's 1987 Self-Titled LP Spawns New, Deluxe Package!

August 21, 2017

Although there were six WHITESNAKE albums released before the hard rockin' band's self-titled 1987 LP, it was that recording which helped the band finally achieve their commercial breakthrough in the U.S. Although the 1987 album had many bone-crunching, hard-rockin' songs, it was the 2 'crossover' songs, "Is This Love," & "Here I Go Again" that propelled the album to an eventual peak at #2 on the U.S. album charts, TONS of radio airplay, and sales of more than 8 million copies. This is yet another great Rock & Roll album whose milestone anniversary will be commemorated with the release of a 'Deluxe' set in a number of different configurations. Set for release October 3rd,(and available for pre-order here) WHITESNAKE fans will have a few choices, including a 'Super Deluxe Box Set' (priced at about $50!) that will include  a remastered original track listing as well as previously unreleased recordings from Whitesnake’s studio and concert archives, music videos from the era, live footage, and a new 30-minute documentary featuring interview segments with frontman David Coverdale, as well as a 60-page hardcover book “filled with rare and unseen photos from the era, an extended essay based on new interviews with Coverdale, plus a booklet of the album’s lyrics, handwritten by Coverdale.” Of the upcoming Anniversary release, DAVID COVERDALE remarked, “It gives me great joy to finally have so much of my Whitesnake catalog all under the same roof with the Warner family and I’m thrilled to be now working with this tremendous team on a worldwide basis. “I have great memories of being with Warner back in my days with Deep Purple then when I was with Geffen, when they were distributed by Warner, so it feels like coming home to now have Whitesnake there. This elaborate reissue is the perfect project to kick off the new relationship.” Rock On!
