Whitesnake – Box O’Snakes: The Sunburst Years 1978-1982

with one comment

Whitesnake.  A band that I loved to hate in the late 80s.  Their videos were annoying and I never saw the allure of Tawny Kitaen.  Then in the late 90s when I started getting into Thin Lizzy and investigating John Sykes’ material, I bought 1987 and realized how great that album was along with Slide It In.  About 10 years ago I heard the pre0Sykes version of Slide It In and thought it was really great in a 70s rock sort of way and started delving backwards into Whitesnake’s back catalogue.  All of their pre-Slide albums are about 50/50 with me. There are some really great songs and some real duds.  Nonetheless, it’s good stuff overall.

In November of 2011, EMI will release Box O’Snakes: The Sunburst Years 1978-1982.  This looks like a nice collector’s piece with all of their pre-Slide studio and live albums along with a DVD and book.  I think I want one!

  1. Man, Sean, this Box O’ Snakes does look gooooooood! I had “Lovehunter” on vinyl for years. Back in college I used the album cover’s snake as inspiration to draw my own “Metal looking” snake for an art project. The foxy gal’s butt on the cover gave me inspiration too… LOL. :)
