David Coverdale comments on the package below.

It’s still hard for me to find the words when remembering that half the incredible band who recorded the ‘SLIDE IT IN’ album with me have passed away.

Incredibly difficult to articulate... Cozy Powell...Mel Galley...Jon Lord...Amazing people...amazing musicians...Their memories live on in our hearts & in the music they made. I miss them beyond words…

Wait until you see & hear them playing as only they can & add in the fiery guitar assault of the incredibly gifted John the relentless melodic bass pounding of Neil Murray…

Watching the videos & listening to the live performances takes me right back to the time I was on stage with this super group...

For this is a time capsule to indulge in, even if you missed the action the first time around & if you did catch any of the shows back in the day, you can relive it now in all it’s sonic glory.

A truly great chapter of the band... One of my all time favorite chapters of Whitesnake.

My Co-Producer Michael McIntyre & I searched the world for decent video footage & audio from any of the 1984 shows & came up with ‘Super-Rock’, recorded at the first Japanese rock festival at Seibu Stadium in Tokyo & a precious, invaluable video of Maestro Jon Lord’s final appearance with Whitesnake.

All of the features on this package have been treated lovingly & respectfully, with no expense spared, utilizing technology to improve sound & picture quality.

In other words, it should look & sound f’ing great!!

Some of the Special Features include never before seen or heard tracks, demos, photos...

These are memories I treasure & delight in sharing with you as we continue our Celebration of the 30th Anniversary of WHITESNAKE  ‘SLIDE IT IN’...
