WHITESNAKE – Unzipped [Japan Super Deluxe Edition SHM-CD] (2018) Exclusive

WHITESNAKE - Unzipped [Japan Super Deluxe Edition SHM-CD] (2018) full

With the current summer tour with Foreigner behind them, WHITESNAKE will revisit some of its best acoustic performances with “Unzipped“. This Japan Super Deluxe Edition on 5 SHM-CD collection brings together unplugged and acoustic-based performances recorded over the past 20+ years, including rare and unreleased studio and live recordings, acoustic demos, remastered songs, and more.

The first Disc from “Unzipped [Japan Super Deluxe Edition SHM-CD]” mixes rare and unreleased versions of songs like “Summer Rain” and “Forevermore” from the band’s recent studio albums – Good To Be Bad (2008) and Forevermore(2011). Also included are songs like “Love Is Blind” from Coverdale’s solo album, Into The Light (2000); and a previously unreleased song, “All The Time In The World.”

In 1997, David Coverdale and guitarist Adrian Vandenberg played an unplugged concert in Tokyo that was recorded and initially released exclusively in Japan as ‘Starkers In Tokyo’. That recording has been remixed and will make its North American-debut on the second disc.
The acoustic performance touches on the different stages of Coverdale’s career, from his time in Deep Purple (“Soldier of Fortune”), to his solo albums (“Too Many Tears”), and, most famously, with Whitesnake on unplugged versions of hits like “Is This Love” and “Here I Go Again.”
There’s 2 previously unreleased tracks as well.

“Unzipped [Japan Super Deluxe Edition SHM-CD]” has even more of unreleased, unplugged recordings, including more performances from Coverdale’s 1997 tour with Vandenberg, plus several later shows featuring Coverdale and guitarist Doug Aldrich.
All these are all over Disc 3 ‘Snakeskin Boots: Starkers In Europe’ and Disc 4 ‘More Starkers’.

Plus, more than two dozen of Coverdale’s unreleased, acoustic demos are also included in the collection on Disc 5 ‘Up Close & Personal’, a real gem for Whitesnake fans and collectors
