Review

To many Whitesnake fans, the show at Donington in 1990 is considered one of their best and looking at the line up of David Coverdale - Vocals, Tommy Aldridge - Drums, Rudy Sarzo - Bass, Adrian Vandenberg - Guitar and Steve Vai - Guitar, you could say they were more of a supergroup than an ordinary band. But after the huge success of the 1987 album where most songs were written by Coverdale/Sykes, the band took a much heavier direction of sound and the blues almost seemed lost in the wall of heavy metal guitars. The follow up "Slip of the tongue" was a disappointment in sales and also in the quality of the songs, perhaps because Sykes wasn´t involved. The songs he wrote for Whitesnake´s follow up were saved to his Blue Murder album instead. This is a good show and Coverdale puts on a great vocal performance but I can´t stand the champion ship of posers where Sarzo, Vandenberg and Vai are competing who can do the best pose. If you ask me, I prefer the more bluesy Whitesnake with Galley, Moody, Marsden, Lord, Paice, Murrayand Powell. And is there really anyone that still enjoy 30 minutes of solos?
