We´re gonna do a song for ya!
2013 is a massive year for Whitesnake fans with plenty of Whitesnake related releases such as 3 albums with Doug Aldrich´s band Burning Rain, Snakecharmer feat. Micky Moody and Neil Murray plus 2 live albums in "Made in Japan" and now also the double live album "Made in Britain".
The latter was recorded during the U.K dates on their 2011 world tour, the first CD is almost identical with the Made in Japan disc but the 2nd CD is more fun with Deep Purple classics and Whitesnake oldies. Thumbs up for "Deeper the love", "Slide it in", the acapella version of "Soldier of fortune" and a medley of "Burn/Stormbringer".
The guitar duel between Aldrich and Reb Beach was called Six String Showdown on "Made in Japan" but here it´s called "Pistols at dawn", same thing, different name.
This is the last recording with drummer Michael Devin who is now replaced by veteran Tommy Aldridge who´s been in the band a couple of times before, and I must add that I enjoyed "Made in Britain" more than Whitesnake´s "Made in Japan".
