To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of WHITESNAKEs multi-platinum Slide It In album, Frontiers Music Srl, the Italian-based label, will release Live In 84 - Back To The Bone, a complete celebration of the groups awe inspiring line-up during what many feel was the incredible beginning of what David Coverdale called his desire to make Whitesnakemore electrifying on record and on stage.
Set for release in Europe on November 7th, in the UK on November 10th, and in North America on November 11th, this release will be available in DVD and a Deluxe CD/DVD edition.
Culled from audio and video recordings and unheard demos from the private collection of WHITESNAKE leader and vocalist, David Coverdale, the release offers an ultra-rare collection of material, performed by the bands acclaimed 83-84 line-ups. Featured on the record is the awesome Cozy Powell on drums (ex-Jeff Beck Group, Rainbow, MSG and later on Gary Moore and Black Sabbath); unique guitarist John Sykes, whom Coverdale credits with inspiring a whole generation of six stringers after his breathtaking work on the WHITESNAKE 87 album and bassist exceptionnnel, Neil Murray. Bonus content features legendary keyboardist Jon Lord performing his last show ever with WHITESNAKE on video and also the bonus CD.
"All of the features have been treated lovingly and respectfully, with no expense spared, utilizing technology to improve sound and picture quality," says Coverdale, who personally oversaw all elements of this release.

Rock or Bust was recorded last spring. The album's first single is "Play Ball" and it will be shared on Turner Sports as part of Major League Baseball's postseason. Here's a teaser of "Play Ball." What do you think?
Helix have a new album called Bastard of the Blues. One of the album singles is "Even Jesus (Wasn't Loved In His Hometown)." I compliment the band for releasing an actual video instead of just a lyric treatment. What do you think?
NEW YORK (AP) — Pink Floyd's new album will arrive on Nov. 10.
A Monday news release gives fresh details about The Endless River, the British rock 'n' roll group's first new material in 20 years.
The 18-song double album features band members David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright, who died in 2008. Roger Waters left the group in 1985 and isn't involved.
The album was assembled from 20 hours of material recorded during the band's 1993 sessions for "The Division Bell."
Gilmour says in the release that the band "added new parts, rerecorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st-century Pink Floyd album."
"The Endless River" is comprised mostly of instrumental music with just one song, "Louder Than Words," that includes new lyrics, written by Gilmour's wife, Polly Samson.
Thanks to the power of Reddit (seriously) I was alerted to the new track by Jorn Lande and Russell Allen. The outfit will release The Great Divide on October 17 via Frontiers. The group released a lyric video for the track "Lady of Winter," a lead single from the album. Here's the video and the album's track listing below. Warning: the guitars will melt your face off. Truly great axe work here.
"Come Dream With Me"
"Down From The Mountain"
"In The Hands Of Time"
"Lady Of Winter"
"Dream About Tomorrow"
"Hymn To The Fallen"
"The Great Divide"
"Reaching For The Stars"
SIXX: A.M. just released the lyric video for "Stars" from their upcoming album Modern Vintage due October 7. In a recent interview, singer James Michael promised a big tour to support the new record. I certainly hope the band comes to a venue near me. I saw SIXX: A.M. once on the first Crue Fest (front row!) - it was pretty cool.
