Before they were a hugely successful MTV hair metal band, Whitesnake was one of heavy metal’s best kept secrets. Formed in 1978 by former Deep Purple front man David Coverdale, the band released 6 albums of blistering material before their huge 1987 self-titled breakthrough record.
From their sixth album, 1983’s Slide It In and featuring former Thin Lizzy guitarist John Sykes, here is Whitesnake with their first real American hit, “Slow An’ Easy.”
Right now, Whitesnake‘s 1987 album Whitesnake is on sale for only $5 in MP3 format and $4.99 as an AutoRip CD, which means when you purchase the CD, you get the MP3 download for FREE. This is the album that everyone remembers for the song “Here I Go Again,” which had the video with Tawny Kitaen on the hood of the car. Other hits from the album include “Still Of The Night,” “Crying In The Rain,” “Bad Boys,” and “Is This Love.”
Also, Whitesnake‘s immediate predecessor, Slide it In, with tunes like the title track, “Slow An’ Easy,” and ” Love Ain’t No Stranger,” is also on sale for only $4.99 as an AutoRip CD.

In the age of the music video, TV in the late 1980s was swamped with big hair and sexy women; examples of both were provided in ample supply by Whitesnake. The band’s big-haired lead singer, David Coverdale, provided us at the time with some of the best rock songs, sung by one of the greatest ever rock voices and responsible for some of the filthiest lyrics in rock (anyone remember “Slow Poke Music”?), all as his model girlfriend cavorted semi-naked in the videos.
Forevermore is Whitesnake’s 11th studio album and marks a tremendous return to the great songs and songwriting of that time, which got most of us listening in the first place.
Today’s spotlight MP3 album deal of the day at Amazon is Whitesnake by the band Whitesnake for only $1.99.
Former Deep Purple lead singer David Coverdale formed Whitesnake in 1977 and when the band transitioned from blue-rock to hard rock with 1984’s Slide It In they began to enjoy some moderate success. But it was their self-titled 1987 album that was the major commercial success, earning them a spot in the 1980’s hair metal pantheon alongside the likes of Motley Crue and Poison.
Two dollars is an awesome deal for the nine tunes — most of them hits — from the band’s most popular album. “Still Of The Night,” “Here I Go Again,” and “Crying In The Rain” are worth the discount price alone. Grab it while you can, because it will mostly like go up to nine bucks after today.
