It was the self-titled seventh studio album, Whitesnake, that gave the band it’s greatest years. It sold upwards of eight million copies in the US alone. It was Whitesnake that generated several hits that included “Still of the Night”, “Here I Go Again”, “Is This Love”, and “Give Me All Your Love”.  This gave Whitesnake lasting power in the charts and great accessibility via concert shows.

On October 6, Rhino Records will provide several iterations of a 30th Anniversary Edition. The new reissue will feature brand new remastering. In the versions being released, there are a single CD with just the newly remastered album, a 2CD Deluxe edition featuring extra tracks, a 2LP vinyl set, and a massive 4CD/1DVD Super Deluxe Box.

The Super Deluxe Box will provide the original album, a CD of unreleased live tracks that had Vandenberg, Campbell, and Aldridge at the helm, alongside David Coverdale. The performance tracks were recorded from the band’s 1987-1988 support tour. Another CD adds in eleven unreleased demo and rehearsal recordinngs that include early versions of songs from the album. The final CD provides newly remixed versions of the four previously mentioned hit singles along with rare radio mixes and songs from 87 Versions,  an exclusive EP issued in Japan.

The DVD features the four singles videos, restored and remixed in 5.1 Surround. There is a 30-minite documentaru of the making of Whitesnake. Plus, there is a newly filmed video of “Here I Go Again”, and unreleased live footage from the 1987-1988 tour.

The Book inside the Box will be a 60-page hardbound book with photos, essay, song lyrics, and more.
