never doubted the ability of Whitesnake to reinvent itself,
after 35 years down the rock n' roll road, David Coverdale
keeps reinventing his band and each year releases brand
new material to his fans.
Whitesnake "Made in Japan" (DVD, DVD + 2CDs [Deluxe
Version] and Blu-Ray) was recorded in October 2011, during
the Forevermore Tour, and was originally conceived as a
Japanese TV special. Now becomes a very nice follow up to
the "Live in The Still of the Night" DVD, released
in 2004. The fans deserve to have a video register of a
specially nice formation of the band with David Coverdale,
Doug Aldrich, Reb Beach, Brian Ruedy, Michael Devin and
Brian Tichy (who unfortunately left the band in January
2013 to devote himself to other projects).
produced by Brutal Brothers (David Coverdale, Doug Aldrich
and Michael McIntyre) in the Man Cave Studios in Lake Tahoe,
where the singer resides, "Made in Japan" still
has no release date scheduled for Brazil.
in Japan" is a pleasant surprise for fans who will
be delighted with the DVD and CD of the Deluxe Edition,
the first CD is a live recording of the same show in DVD
and includes tracks from albums "Good to be Bad"
and "Forevermore", plus classics that audiences
love like "Is this Love?", "Give Me All Your
Love Tonight", "Love Is No Stranger", "Here
I Go Again" and "Still of the Night".
the bonus CD, the audio of sound checks recorded in several
japanese cities during the Forevermore Tour, but the special
taste of rarity resides particularly in 4 tracks from the
albuns "Forevermore" and "Good to be Bad";
recorded in acoustic format never before performed live
by the bandl: "Fare Thee Well", "One Of These
Days", "Good To Be Bad" and "Tell Me
How" lends a hand to imagination for the ones that
still dream of a full unplugged project.
package "Made in Japan" that includes the DVD/Blu-Ray
is a treat to the eyes and ears from the stunning clarity
of the images and impeccable sound, the guys from Whitesnake
spared no effort to give a wonderful production to the video
material, while it's repertoire will surely please fans
of all generations, with both classics: "Fool For Your
Loving", "Love Ain't no Stranger", "Is
This Love?", "Give Me All Your Love Tonight",
"Here I Go Again", "Still Of The Night"
and the latest hits: "Best Years", "Steal
Your Heart Away", "Love Will Set You Free",
including the hit-single from "Forevernore" the
utterly beautiful ballad "Forevermore".
it's really worth to give a closer look at the show paying
special attention to the duel of guitars from masters Doug
Aldrich and Reb Beach, on the track that's dubbed on the
DVD as "Six String Showdown", a battle of two
great "beasts" in nearly 6 minutes of pure Rock
n' Roll. It becomes clear here why this combination between
Doug and Reb fits so perfectly to the sound of Whitesnake,
already hoping that this partnership will last for many
Whitesnake will be under the spotlighs this year, as the
band will release one more double CD set; "Made In
Britain" and "The World Record", are both
scheduled to be released in July in Europe and US. "Made
In Britain" brings the best moments of the shows in
England, whereas "The World Record" consists of
rare tracks recorded during the Forevermore Tour stints
in Europe and North and South Americas.
of the great white snake will have plenty of reasons to
celebrate, and besides all those great releases, the band
will come to Brazil in September 2013, for a series of concerts,
at least that's what David Coverdale have been saying through
his official Twitter account lately. While the fans wait
for an official confirmation, they will quench their thirsty
watching the DVD, listening to the CDs and greeting life
in general, after all it is very good to be alive!
