Out Now: Whitesnake, SLIDE IT IN / SLIP OF THE TONGUE

A few weeks ago, Rhino reissued Whitesnake’s self-titled 1987 album to celebrate its 30th anniversary, but we’re in no way done with our efforts to show a little love to the back catalog of David Coverdale and company. This week brings our reissues of two additional albums from their discography, a pair which provides listeners with the opportunity to both slip and slide.

SLIDE IT IN (1984): Although the band originally entered the studio with Eddie Kramer on board to helm the sessions, his lack of feeling for the band led to him being replaced by Martin Birch, who ultimately produced an album which hit #40 on the Billboard 200 and climbed into the top 10 of the UK Albums chart. A number of different tracks were released as singles between the US and the UK, among them “Guilty of Love,” “Give Me More Time,” “Standing in the Shadow,” “Love Ain’t No Stranger,” and “Slow an’ Easy.”

SLIP OF THE TONGUE (1989): All eyes and ears were on the band when they released the follow-up to that aforementioned 1987 self-titled album, and while Coverdale has described it as “an album plagued with challenges and obstacles for me, personally, from many avenues,” it was a top-10 album in both the US and the UK. Additionally, it provided the band with two huge radio hits: “The Deeper The Love” and an updated version of “Fool for Your Loving.” Both of which climbed into the top 5 of Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart.
