WHITESNAKE will release a new double live album, "Live ... In The Shadow Of The Blues", in November via Steamhammer/SPV. The set includes almost all the remarkable hits from WHITESNAKE's career, as well as two timeless DEEP PURPLE classics in "Burn" and "Stormbringer". WHITESNAKE's David Coverdale was the frontman of the legendary British act between 1973 and 1976, making a significant contribution to numerous PURPLE highlights during this era. "Live ... In The Shadow Of The Blues" also includes four previously unreleased tracks in "Ready To Rock", "If You Want Me (I'll Come Running)", "All I Want Is You" and "Dog", eagerly awaited by all WHITESNAKE fans. The strictly limited version of the double album will be available in a top-quality digipack, featuring a number of surprises, among them the bonus track "Crying In The Rain", including a haunting drum solo by drum legend Tommy Aldridge.
In an posting on the band's official web site, Coverdale has offered the following update on the upcoming live CD:
"We're currently re-addressing some of the mixes that were done in my absence that I was somewhat disappointed with, so, we be a-fixin' 'em! The tracks are sounding more potent than the DVD 'live' album, I'm happy to say... and they capture all ze balls we know and love zat ze SNAKE can offer...Also, I thought some of the earlier part of the 06 tour, the versions of certain songs kicked a little more boot-ay...so, we be a-mixin' them to include in the CD we're releasing later this year...That's the primary reason we've put it back a few weeks in order to finish the project to the best of our abili-tay... (Note to self...stop watching 'South Park'!)...Don't worry...we have plenty of very, very positive new stuff that we'll be finessing as soon as we put this current baby to bed."
