Whitesnake Retrospective Day 5: 1981

In 1981, Whitesnake released "Come and Get It", which to me is the weakest of the classic albums, but it still has a few bright spots.  In general though, the songwriting isn't as good here as it was on the previous two or three albums.  The album keeps with the trend of being a little more hard edged than its predecessor, but it still has some bluesy numbers like the piano boogie "Wine, Women, and Song"*.  They did a video for "Would I Lie to You".  Standard late-70's style rock.  Ian Paice and Mickey Moody are still behatted!  Obviously we are still a long way from the hair band years here.
