Digitally remastered and expanded two disc (CD + PAL/Region 0 DVD) 25th Anniversary edition of the band's 1984 album features six bonus tracks plus a bonus DVD containing video clips and live footage of David Coverdale and Co.

Originally dismissed as a Led Zeppelin knockoff, Whitesnake, fronted by ex-Deep Purple singer David Coverdale, clattered around their hometown of Yorkshire, England for about six years before being discovered in the U.S. Their U.S. debut (fourth album) Slide It In (1984) captured the libidinous, restless spirit of frustrated youth, and climbed to No. 40 on the Billboard album chart. Eventually, it went double platinum on the back of the stealthy, pulsing "Slow An' Easy" and the propulsive title track. Shortly before recording the album, Coverdale recruited former Thin Lizzy guitarist John Sykes, who provided the band with the flair and technical wizardry it needed to become a contender in the big-hair, pop metal sweepstakes. --Jon Wiederhorn --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

This release baffles me. 3 tracks are missing from the UK mix of Slide It In! (Love Ain't No Stranger, Hungry For Love, and the UK mix of Need Your Love So Bad.) This is very frustrating as a collector. Now I still somehow need to acquire the UK version of Slide It In, even though I have this. And then to top it off, a live acoustic version of Love Ain't No Stranger from 1997 was included. This version has absolutely nothing to do with Slide It In, and is already available on the live album Starkers In Tokyo.
The DVD is fine, all the music videos and a few live tracks from the era are included. However, once again...a live version of Love Ain't No Stranger, this one from one of the Snake tours in the 2000's, and also the Starkers version. Why? I don't know.
Why not just release a 2 CD set with both versions of the album? I don't know.
The remastering is good, the liner notes are great, even though they gloss over the missing tracks. Photos are great as well. Shame about the tracklist.
Two stars. Now I'm off to find the correct UK version.
