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.
*this vid is from a few years later, slightly different lineup.
