Whitesnake - Slide It In


JamesEagle

Recommended Posts

I'm a big fan of Whitesnake's more rock/metal albums (I don't like the earlier bluesy stuff as much, so I'm not a purist) but haven't really listened to them for years. I had never realised that there were 2 versions of 'Slide It In' - a UK and a US one, the latter with John Sykes playing guitar. (Yeah, I know, how did I miss that one?)

 

As a massive fan of Sykes' playing, I suddenly have to get hold of the US version. The CD is pretty cheap, but I have no idea whether the CDs on Amazon and eBay are the UK or US version. I'm not really keen to buy the recent reissue, which has both versions, so does anyone know of an easy way to tell which version is which?

Cheers, that's really useful. Got my eye on a US copy now... :tumbsup:

There is quite a difference on some songs, obviously in Sykes and Galleys guitar playing, but also the US one being remixed and a few more keys and sprinkles added etc, a little like what they did with the MSG 'Built To Destroy' album. I slightly prefer the UK version, as it has a little more balls to it, but either are worth getting tbh.

I'd definitely go with the recent re-issue with both versions, as it is pretty cheap and has the bonus disc and remastering aswell.

The re-issued version is only is only £9 on Amazon, so as Jez says, thats really the one to go for considering what you get for your money.

Yeah grab the re-released deluxe edition... It has both versions. I am a huge Sykes fan but all he does is some overdibs on 5 or so songs. The original is actually better IMO. That said no hard rock CD compares with 1987 :)

£9 for essentially two albums and a DVD isnt what I would call expensive, and I'm currently unemployed.

Yeah, its nice when you can pick things up for £5, but you know that HMV is probably selling this for £15.

Good point. The difference between HMV.com and HMV shop prices is, at times, quite alarming.

 

It's definitely on the list, when the next Amazon splurge comes around it's in.

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43   PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM  
    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.
