    Slide It In was my fourth WS cassette as I first bought Live, Come An' Get It & R&W on cassettes in 1985; vinyl and CD editions came later in the decade. I knew of WS in 84 or 85 when I was seeking recordings of ex Deep Purple members and found out there was a band named Whitesnake featuring Jon Lord & Ian Paice performing blues rock material. Initially I never knew DC was in the band as the only minuscule info I could find in the pre-internet era was through rock magazines as I thought DC faded into obscurity after the mid 70s but happy to find out I was wrong and more than I bargain for ;)

    Coming late to the party...I started collecting Whitesnake albums in 1999 at the age of 18 after I had my 'own' cash flow...I started with the European releases, but on a midnight excursion to K-mart that summer...came face to face with the Slide It In cassette...it didn't leave my player for a very long time...

    Remember it well...I married my (current) wife december 17th 1983 and this was the FIRST album I bought early 1984 living together as partners...my wife knows the lyrics from A to Z now as you can imagine...as well do my son and two daughters...I remember being smashed by the intensity of the first song on the record: Gambler and then 'Love Ain't No Stranger'...Mel and Cozy's contributions were very audible...VERY tasty record....

    Happy 30th anniversary of the album Slide It In!I've just watched the video and thanks again DC, thank you for your music!Thank you for sending such a great energy with every song you sing...Wish you all the best :)))
  • wakey   2014-03-18 11:00:34
    Happy 30th Slide It In. One of my favourite albums of all time. I am lucky enough to be going to the John Lord Tribute at The Royal Albert Hall on April 4th can't wait.
  • Giovanni   2014-03-18 05:38:51
    DC: After reading the well-written Burn Reflections I do hope that you really pen your autobiography. I know that you have mentioned it from time to time and not sure if you were being facetious. Burn Reflections would be a glove-fit chapter. You may say that you don't have the time but if you wrote one page a day for a year??? Naively optimistic on this end. God bless, Giovanni
  • Paperboy   2014-03-18 04:58:52
    Loving the old footage. As a fan since my first concert - Deep Purple, Burn tour, Coventry Theatre, and then lucky enough to become part of the Whitesnake road. crew at the start if the 80s, I feel honoured to have known many of these fantastic musicians, and in particular, the late great Jon Lord. Only wish i could get to the Albert Hall for the tribute show. Great to see the old Whitesnake boys still rocking. Keep up the good work!!! David, miss you. Hope see to your new show soon.
  • kindredsoul   2014-03-17 18:49:18
    I first discovered Whitesnake some 30 years ago, I think I heard Slide It In, or Take Me Down Slo' An Easy, seems like so long ago, but then at times like it was yesterday. I used to think, "How does Coverdale know what I'M thinking?" Songs about love and heartbreak, yep, all me. We must have dated women with the same exact profiles! Still, all these years later, those songs still resonate with my soul. And even now as we've both grown older, the newer songs have their place in my heart as well, such great new music. From the bottom of my heart David...Thank you. Thank you very much indeed.

  • steve   2014-03-17 12:38:21
    Happy St Patrick's day!! Slide It In was what got me into Whitesnake. First heard "Slow An' Easy" on Alan Robson's rock show on Metro radio in Newcastle upon Tyne. Blew me away.....and never looked back since;0)
  • Poor Albert   2014-03-17 12:30:05
    Our good Whitesnake friend just pointed out to me that I had the wrong date on the Jon Lord Tribute. It is April 4, not April 6 as I had on the site before. Mark your calendars!!!
  • catman74   2014-03-17 11:49:20
    ....contd He gave me about 10 cd's, plus some vinyl. Nothing else interesting to speak of, but the jewel that was slide it in stood out. It was on the Carrere label in France and unbeknown to me it was the US version (i didn't even know there was a UK version until much later). It was '85 or '86 and i was 11 and we didn't even own a CD player then they were so new. But my dad went out and bought an Aiwa one, cost a fortune back then, & wired it up to our Pioneer stereo. Then hooked ever since!! I still have it somewhere....Thanks for the memories David :-)) @andycattell

    Happy 30th Anniversary to the beautiful Snake and to all the fans :) XX
  • Caroline Clarkson-Drake   2014-03-17 09:01:56
    I do hope that David Coverdale will surprise us by playing with Deep Purple at the Jon Lord Tribute concert in April. I know that David's knees have not been too good recently but I do hope that everyone might be in for a surpise in April. Happy 30th Anniversary of 'Slide It In', wow this album has certainly got people talking about the line-up of Whitesnake.
  • David Coverdale   2014-03-17 07:41:35
    Happy St Patrick's Day To You & Yours...Hope you enjoy the 'Slide It In' 30th Anniversary treats we put together for you...:)...We LOVE hearing your stories about when you first bought it, heard it...All Those Years Ago!!!...Love & LIGHT...DC
  • Oonaa   2014-03-17 05:30:11
    aw yes, that’s what i mean under let’s see the yet unseen (def. some of them). Gents thank you for uber beautiful photos! i remember my elder bro coming home from school one day, hiding the vinyl under his sweater (much later he confessed of nicking it from the store:)as there was lit. no pocket money at the time). the secret pleasures of pinching great books/LPs back in the days:) & the solemn ritual of the first listening, what a joy it was, the sleeve notes, the pics, the hunger for more info (there was no google...but there was so much more thrill!) yes we are guilty of love!
  • catman74   2014-03-17 04:06:06
    What a fantastic interview, and great video montage. There looked to be some very "Clean" footage from the various concerts there, including Rock In Rio unless i'm mistaken?! (hoping you've secured some rights after all this time) Also hoping that that this is a sneak preview of some forthcoming goodies for the fans to purchase this year. Thanks so much for spending the time putting the interview and Video together David & PA, fantastic stuff please keep it coming! Slide It In was my 1st (& Fav) WS album. Given to me by my french penfriend's dad who was a record factory manager at the time AC
  • Eveglori   2014-03-16 22:45:21
    Jeez, nothing like sneaking back to the site to celebrate with you all, decide to enter the contest... and then have the cat jump on my keyboard just before I enter my email *sighs* Deposited her back on the floor and tried again (sorry if that's not allowed! I figure with no email it's a void entry..? I don't know, I might still be flogged for it lol). Ah well, after that all I have to say is that I hope everyone is well, and I'll be here lurking again XD xxx
  • Oonaa   2014-03-16 13:02:44
    While we keep on celebrating many anniversaries, 39 y ago on this day DP kicked off stormbringer tour in Belgrade. here's a raw 8mm footage [link] as P. Makowski wrote "The audience went bananas." I think the band did as well. It was love at first sight :) happy week ya all
