ATTENTION ALL WHITESNAKE FANS: Get ready to be mesmerised… The exciting Whitesnake: 30th Anniversary Collection is available now; with track after track of the finest rock music to rattle your window panes or blast you out of your car seat!

For the band's 30th anniversary year, David Coverdale's Whitesnake is back with a brand new studio album Good To be Bad and a European tour planned for June, July and August (2008). And now there's the 30th Anniversary Collection — a collection of the highlights of Whitesnake's career.

The digitally remastered tracks are superb, with such great melodic rock sounds as the fantastic hit Here I Go Again. I love this track and it has so much to give musically, but it isn't on its own — Is This Love, Fool For Your Loving and In The Still Of The Night are among the many treats in store for rock fans.

And it doesn't stop: The wonderfully emotive Crying In The Rain and Too Many Tears; up-beat rock-along Rough An' Ready; the 'I-can't-stop-dancing' Lie Down; terrific Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City (Whitesnake's first hit); absolutely great Love Ain't No Stranger; enigmatic Judgement Day; and the marvellous Now You're Gone. Looking For Love has an enchanting musical treatment that I found very moving — as I did the compelling Sailing Ships.

Guilty Of Love, Blindman and Slave must also get a mention and Whitesnake ends with a message to fans: We Wish You Well. Rock gets blues and Latin American treatments with magical instrumentals on Whitesnake: 30th Anniversary Collection and the result is a collection not to be missed. The two fictional characters called Lois (Lane, in Smallville and Griffin, in Family Guy) are reputed to be great Whitesnake fans and to listen to the band is to love them.

With strong, clear vocals and captivating musical melodies, Whitesnake: 30th Anniversary Collection also covers highlights from some of David Coverdale's other projects — such as a brilliant live acoustic version of the Deep Purple classic Soldier Of Fortune (he spent three years with Deep Purple). The sleevenotes are provided by David himself and Mick Wall.

The EMI Records New Catalogue Release Whitesnake: 30th Anniversary Collection 3-CD Set was released on 9 June (2008). Catalogue No 212 6612.
