Whitesnake/Northwinds cd cover

Coverdale, David

Whitesnake/Northwinds

For the sake of the collection, maybe... But that's the only reason I can see getting this one. In all fairness, I didn't hear this album until the late 90's, so taken out of context from another era, it sounds dated to say the least. Coverdale's voice was strong even then, but the songs showed me a side of Dave I'm not sure I would've believed if I hadn't heard it myself. To tell you the truth, it's a side of him I'm not sure I needed to see. The similarities to Billy Joel in some spots are staggering. I heard what could have been a whole different future for Coverdale, but luckily fate had other plans for him. --Scott
