Visions of Whitesnake Paperback
Foreword by Whitesnake bassist Neil Murray, over 130 concert photos from UK gigs as far back as their third ever gig in Wolverhampton on the first "back to the roots" tour-Birmingham on the band's first full scale UK tour promoting the debut album Trouble, by which time Coverdale's former Deep Purple band mate Jon Lord had joined.
The Deep Purple connection continued when drummer Ian Paice joined in 1979 in time for the band's first appearance at the Reading Festival in 1979 from which there are many photos included along with shots from later in the year during the Lovehunter Tour.
The concert photos conclude with shots from their appearance at the 1981 Monsters Of Rock Festival.
Visions of Whitesnake also contains a superb range of photos from the personal collection of bassist Neil Murray who collaborated on this publication.
Armed with his trusty Pentax, Neil was always on hand to catch the band in many different situations and locations.
His collection includes photos from several recording sessions-Lovehunter album at Clearwell Castle, Come an' Get It at Startling Studios and the sessions for the Saints & Sinners album in the Autumn of 1981.
Neil's collection also includes many backstage, off stage and soundcheck shots from the first Japanese tour in 1980, UK and German tours from the same year as well as the US tour where they supported Jethro Tull.
Neil kept diaries during his years in the band and these have helped Neil to add his memories and recollections to go alongside many of the photos making this a wonderful addition to any Whitesnake collection.
