Wow, this is one killer live album. There is no drums, no bass, no keyboards, no back-up vocals, just a single voice and a single guitar. Whitesnake has been around just over 20 years since this release, and it proves to be one of David Coverdale's finest. Yea, his voice doesn't have it's range like it did in the 80's, but he can still melt your heart when he sings them ballads. Not surprisingly, that what Starkers In Toyko contains most of, slow blues burners and late 80's ballads, with a few newer tunes thrown in. It opens with Sailing Ships(one of the two here from Slip of the Tongue), a relaxing rendition that sets the tone for most of the show. Slipping next into the mournful Too Many Tears(1 of 3 Restless Heart songs, I also revieve that awesome album), David pouring his heart and emotion into the song. About halfway through, from 1987's S/T album comes the show rev-upper Give Me All Your Love, and the audience loving it. The last three songs are excellent, Is This Love, the heavy Here I Go(which is about the fastest song performed) and Solider of Fortune. The latter being a lovely addition, digging into his Purple bag of tricks. As for the guitar player, Adrian Vandenberg(hot-shot 80's guitar virtuoso) he is fantastic all the way, not to mention David's perfect guitar player. All-in-all , a relaxing, comfortable listen that will soothe you from a rough day. The only track that would have been perfect for this would have been Slow n' Easy, after one listen to this, you'll know why!

I never thought I would be using the words "relax" and "Whitesnake" in the same sentence, but there you have it. An outstanding live, acoustic album. This is probably the best one I've ever heard. It's a great example of how simple can really be better. David singing and Adrian on guitar and nothing else! The small audience and the intimate setting only serves to heighten the feeling of David singing live in your living room! A great album to relax to and soothe your nerves after a hard day. As a side note, I understand that David also performed "Fool For Your Loving" which was not included on this album for some reason. He also attempted Adrian's "Burning Heart," but this was not included as he forgot the words!

Awesome, it's a very interesting CD, but it's not completely diferent from what Whitesnake did as i've been reading, but it's too damn good. My hint: Take a woman to your house,play this CD, open the wine and the rest... well the rest you know.....
If you don't know or don't like whitesnake, try this one first. Sure you will love it.

The idea of an "unplugged" Whitesnake album is appealing, and "Starkers In Tokyo" does feature a lovely rendition of the classic Deep Purple-ballad "Soldier Of Fortune".
But most of the songs don't really work too well in this setting. Coverdale's vocals are excellent, but Adrian Vandenberg's lone guitar just doesn't provide the musical backing that these songs need, and the extremely lean arrangement doesn't suit songs like "Too Many Tears" and "Here I Go Again".
Vandenberg picks more than he strums, and a rhythm guitar or two (and preferably an acoustic bass as well) would have worked wonders. And how about bringing a piano next time...?
There are some good moments on "Starkers In Tokyo", but this is mainly an album for serious Coverdale-fans. Casual listeners probably won't find too much here to hold their attention, unless they become really, really taken with David Coverdale's rich, soulful voice.

After listening to a second of each of the songs on this CD, the listener will undoubtedly realize that Whitesnake songs just don't sound good with just vocals and (horrible sounding) guitar. They sound far too empty. These are songs that NEED heavy drums, keyboard, bass, and electric guitar. It's respectable that Coverdale didn't forget about the band who got him on his feet - Deep Purple - by including "Soldier of Fortune", but this song and all the rest should never have been released in this stripped down way. Once again, far too empty.
