Product Description

Amazon.ca

Whitesnake were lumped into the "hair metal" explosion of the 1980s, but they were a classier, more classic rock band than most of their peers. So the songs that populate this hits collection hold up better than the work of many of that era's MTV-boosted groups. Vocalist David Coverdale took flack for sounding like Robert Plant, but his booming, confident voice is more temperate than the Zep frontman's caterwaul. From roaring epics such as "Still of the Night" and "Here I Go Again" to the blatant, sexy "Slide It In" to the memorable power ballad "Love Ain't No Stranger," the expected hits from the band's commercial heyday are included in this comprehensive CD, which skips over Whitesnake's several hitless discs of the '70s. Three decent unreleased songs fill out this 14-cut collection, which, much like the band itself, is solid and timeless. --Katherine Turman

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation. Feb. 12 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Highly recommended. I wish they had a lyric insert inside this CD. Its a must if you love old classic rock music. Rock on David Coverdale.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best Compilation... May 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
This release is the best compilation for the new or casual Whitesnake fan. It only contains songs from a few select albums, but at least those albums represent various incarnations of the band. For that reason it is a better choice than the "20th Century - Millennium Collection" which favors the later, MTV, "poser" version of the band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good hard rock album March 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Although I'm only a casual fan of Whitesnake but I think that this is a really good album to own if you're an old school hard rock/metal fan and I find it interesting that Whitesnake vocalist David Coverdale replaced Ian Gillan on vocals for Deep Purple and recorded 3 albums in the mid 1970's just before Deep Purple broke up and I also had no idea that Whitesnake recorded some albums in the late 70's, I totally find that amazing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good greatest hits CD but missing a few songs March 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
I think the CD falls short of 5 stars cause it doesn't have Give Me All Your Love, Children of the Night and it only contains the single version of Here I Go Again which I'm not really a fond of but overall if you're a casual fan of Whitesnake, this would be a good place to start, I'll never forget the first time I heard of Slow an Easy and I had no idea that it was Whitesnake that sang that song and I used to think that it was Krokus or some lesser known metal band.
Here are my ratings for each track on this CD.
Still of the Night 10/10
Here I Go Again 5/10 (album version 10/10)
Is This Love 7/10
Love Ain't No Stranger 10/10
Looking For Love 7/10
Now You're Gone 8/10
Slide it In 9/10
Slow and Easy 10/10
Judgement Day 7/10
You're Gonna Break My Heart Again 9/10
The Deeper the Love 7/10
Crying in the Rain 8/10
Fool For Your Loving 10/10
Sweet Lady Luck 5/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Compilation Out There March 3 2004
By Mike
Format:Audio CD
This came out in 1994 and only includes three of their albums, plus several unreleased songs or unreleased versions. Most of their songs are influenced by Led Zeppelin, but are not rip-offs, so they are still worth listening to. Here's how the songs stack up.
Still of The Night 10/10- Probably the hardest rocking song that you can still listen to without getting a headache, always have to air guitar when this song comes on. Sounds great and is definitely influenced by Zeppelin, but takes their metal to a whole new level. Great song to start out with.
Here I Go Again 3/10, 10/10- The frist rating is for the versio of the song they inluded on the disc. Completely awful radio version. Take away the vocals and it sounds like elevator music. The second grade is for the real version of the song which along with Guns N Roses made hair metal the most popular music, at least until Nirvana.
Is This Love 3/10- Their second most popular song is a ballad that is slow and suprisingly awful.
Love Ain't No Stranger 10/10- Finally a good song with a nice guitar riff.
Looking For Love 4/10- Unreleased in America, only on their European equivilant of Whitesnake called 1987. Verrrry slow with no guitar until the middle. Picks up at the end, but is not enough to save it.
Now You're Gone 9/10- Nice power ballad and one of Coverdale's few songs that does not have a Zeppelin influence.
Slide It In 6/10- Popular songs off of the album of the same name. Reminds me of the song "Houses of the Holy" off of Physical Graffiti.
Slow An' Easy 4/10- Should be called "Slow an' Sucky." Nothing good here. Thank goodness for the skip function on CD players.
Judgement Day 10/10- More Zeppelin influence sounds great with the guitar.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Slide It In" your cd player. Jan. 21 2004
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
I must admit, when these guys were hot, I was listening to other things, but I'm glad I eventually checked them out. This is a good collection for the casual fan. It's actually missing alot, but it does include the big hits from the "Whitesnake" album, plus a number of others. What's here is "Still Of The Night", "Slide It In", "Here I Go Again", and the hit ballad "Is This Love". It also includes a few choice album cuts like "Crying In The Rain" and "Looking For Love". Overall it's a great disc, and will go well with "White Lion" and "Great White", (to complete your "White" metal trilogy of course).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Of Whitesnake's Later Period Sept. 23 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
GREATEST HITS contains the best songs from WHITESNAKE and SLIP OF THE TONGUE, plus a few from SLIDE IT IN. If you're new to Whitesnake, buy this one, SLIDE IT IN, and SAINTS 'N' SINNERS- preferably all at once- and then, you might want to cut some clutter out by getting rid of the self-titled 1987 album and SLIP OF THE TONGUE, as this one contains almost all of their best songs in one place.
