Whitesnake: The BLUES ALBUM 1984-2011 2020 Remix (Colored Vinyl Blue) 2 LP) 2021 Release Date: 2/19/2021
Double blue colored vinyl LP pressing. 2021 compilation. Whitesnake celebrates the blues sound that helped inspire it's multi-platinum career on a this collection that features remixed and remastered versions of the group's best blues-rock songs.
The Blues Album is the third and final release in the band's Red, White and Blues Trilogy, a series of compilations organized by musical themes that began with Love Songs (red) and The Rock Album (white). Like the Rock Album and Love Songs, all the tracks on THE BLUES ALBUM have been revisited, remixed, and remastered. Whitesnake's singer-songwriter David Coverdale says, the music reflects how blues artists like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and the three Kings (Albert, B.B. and Freddie) continue to inspire him. In the album's liner notes, he writes: "It's hard to find the words to show how profoundly they connected with my soul. But 'blues' to me is a beautiful word that describes emotional expression... feelings, be it feelings of sadness, loneliness, emptiness... but, also those that express great joy, celebration and dance, sexiness and Love!!!" The new compilation delivers a potent mix of hits and deep tracks that originally appeared between 1984 and 2011 on six Whitesnake studio albums and Coverdale's solo album, Into the Light.
