(Back Order) WHITESNAKE Unzipped (Super Deluxe Edition) 5CD+DVD
Release date 19 October 2018
Rhino will issue Unzipped, a new Whitesnake super deluxe edition box set, later this year, that focuses on ‘unplugged’ and acoustic-based performances recorded over the last 20 years or so. This 5CD+DVD package includes rare and unreleased studio and live recordings, acoustic demos, concert videos, interviews and more.
The first CD in the set is called Unzipped… In The Studio: The Love Songs and features six previously unreleased tracks, while disc two, Starkers in Tokyo is a 1997 unplugged concert recorded in Tokyo. This has never been officially issued in the States and has been newly remixed for this set. Two further CDs, Starkers in Europe and More Starkers continue the theme, delivering 48 more audio tracks.
The final audio disc is Up Close & Personal which contains 25 of David Coverdale’s unreleased and acoustic demos.
A DVD completes the six-disc super deluxe edition with live, unplugged performances filmed around the world between 1997 and 2015, including a complete acoustic show recorded at the Cutting Room in New York in 2008.
Two-CD, 2LP (discs one and two of this set) and single CD (disc one) editions of Unzipped are also available, although the six-disc extravaganza is reasonably priced, so I suspect anyone interested will be going the whole hog!
This Whitesnake Unzipped box set will be issued on 19 October 2018
