"I love the blues, they tell my story
if you don't feel it you can never understand"
I suppose, coming from a working class Yorkshire background, Dave Coverdale has paid his dues.
The heavy organ is still a part of the Whitesnake sound, as is the three part vocal harmonies. This was also the last album to feature Dave Dowle on drums, and as much as I admire and respect those who took his place, I always thought he was the Whitesnake drummer. This was also the last Whitesnake album to feature a song not sung by Coverdale, "Outlaw", a nice Bernie Marsden tune with some Moog stylings from Mr. Lord.
next stop: are you ready? and willing????
*this is the oldest video I could find of this song, the drummer here is Ian Paice who did not play on the record, as far as I know. Low audio/video quality but it shows what a fun band this must have been live.
