[I listened to these in the car and then I was talking to my robot and she was typing when I composed this fine essay so it might not make sense but just be lucky I said anything about a band called White Snake] : I’ve always had a weakness for some Deep Purple, that early junk at least some of that at least 1968 - 1972 curca the early covers "Hush" by some folk rocker and "Kentucky Woman" by Neil Diamond and the balls out rock ‘n’ roll of "Highway Star" on Machine Head. they probably got less interesting after 1972 I don’t know really to be honest but and then at some point they split up I think and I think they split it right into two but don't quote me on that, into Rainbow and White Snake in circa 1976, and while the late 70s hard rock got pretty limp and less interesting Rainbow is actually one of the stand out acts of that error, along with bands like Bon Scott's edition of AC/DC and Judas Priest. Rainbow were creating blueprints for some of the best parts of the hard rock and metal of the next decade the 1980s but Whitesnake was creating the less interesting side of the 1980s, the butt rock, even though both Rainbow and Whitesnake were very similar, and I actually had never listened to a Whitesnake album at least even though I tried almost every rock act of the 1970s, even saw white snake I think 1979 backing up someone like Thin Lizzy or Boyster Colt or maybe maybe I did listen to them and realized I didn’t really need to again. this is really cliché ridden cock rock that’s clearly comes out of the purple but also out of Swan Song, Led Zeppelin for example and Bad Company almost like equal parts of those with some purple and then also some Chuck Berry may be fed through some John Lennon and 70s hard rock in anyway some people might actually enjoy the cliché. after all there’s people who love kiss if they can love kiss they can maybe probably love this I suppose or if you just love the 80s kind of glam cock rock hard rock button buck rock of the 80s...I guess this certainly helped create that.. they really have everything they needed all the in greenies to deliver the goods, a strong rhythm section, guitarist that weren’t too obsessed with showing off focused on the songs for the most part rather than show off bullshit excess excess excess and bullshit at all that they had everything they had to deliver the goods but there was one thing missing was songs. they didn’t have any good songs just like cliché cliché shut up who cares but I don’t know maybe that some people like that fact that it’s so simple with that they are so awful in a lyric department I suppose but I don’t know there’s like songs that are just like OK this is gonna be a good song but all those songs quickly end up crap and it’s not surprising that they were able to stay signed but never really made it big at least until the late 80s when they were still doing the same thing I thought the big difference is they had a couple radio friendly hit songs in 1988 but now that I listen to these CDs, I realize like their big hit from 1988 "here I go again" actually had been done first in 1982 on sinners and Saints LP 1982 except one the original version, instead of saying "like a drifter I was born to walk alone" they say "like a hobo," and realized to changed that because it sounds better, and what's funny is "like a hobo" sounds like he's saying "like a homo," so that's pretty funny, my favorite part in listening to these CDs.  -- winch
