Whitesnake – The Deeper The Love (Coverdale/Vandenberg) b/w Judgement Day (Coverdale/Vandenberg) & Sweet Lady Luck (Coverdale/Vandenberg)
1990 Special Ltd Edition White Vinyl
Another Top 40 UK hit for DC and the gang.
And if you thought the six singles culled from 1987 were overly commercial by Whitesnake’s standards then this sugary sweet ballad took the band to a whole new level of pop rock sheen.
Featuring Steve Vai on guitar, The Deeper The Love was the third single taken from Slip Of The Tongue – the title track had failed to chart and the heat was on.
Hitting 36 in the UK and charting one place higher in the US wasn’t much of an improvement for the original hair metal heroes but this tune is still a huge favourite with Whitesnake fans of a certain generation – Coverdale’s vocals have never sounded better. Presented on sparkling white vinyl with a bright red centrepiece this is a striking addition to any collector’s 12 inch haul.
And with three tracks – including the phenomenal Judgement Day – it’s a great listen on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
With Whitesnake out on the road again with Def Leppard this autumn and winter it’s time to dust down DC’s best vinyl cuts and ascend to hair metal heaven. See you on the other side.
