Live.... In the Heart of the City/Live at Hammersmith [Bonus Disc]

Live.... In the Heart of the City/Live at Hammersmith [Bonus Disc]

by Whitesnake Whitesnake




Virtually every hard rock band in the universe managed to release a live (usually double) album in the late '70s, and Whitesnake were certainly no exception. Live.... In the Heart of the City does a pretty good job of collecting the highlights from the band's first four releases, as well as a few Deep Purple standards (singer David Coverdale, organist Jon Lord, and drummer Ian Paice are all Purple alumni). Whitesnake favorites such as "Walking in the Shadow of the Blues," "Ready an' Willing," and "Fool for Your Loving" heat up the crowd, but it's the extended version of "Lovehunter" that gets things boiling, thanks to Micky Moody's extended slide guitar solo. The audience participation on "Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City" provides another thrilling moment, but the band truly brings the house down with a last encore of Deep Purple's "Mistreated" -- a blues of monstrous proportions that becomes an 11-minute catharsis for Coverdale. [The 2007 two-disc reissue included bonus cuts.]
