0

Whitesnake will release “Unzipped: Super Deluxe Edition”, “Unzipped: Super Deluxe Edition”. This five CD/DVD collection brings together unplugged and acoustic-based performances recorded over the past 20-plus years, including rare and unreleased studio and live recordings, acoustic demos, concert videos, interviews and more. The extensive set will be available on October 19 for $59.98. On the same day, Rhino will also release “Unzipped” in three other formats: single-CD ($7.98), double-CD ($19.98), and double-LP ($29.98). All of the music will be available digitally and via streaming services. “Starkers In Tokyo” has been remixed and will make its North American debut on the second disc of “Unzipped: Super Deluxe Edition”. The acoustic performance touches on the different stages of Coverdale’s career, from his time in Deep Purple (“Soldier Of Fortune”), to his solo albums (“Too Many Tears”), and, most famously, with Whitesnake on unplugged versions of hits like “Is This Love” and “Here I Go Again”. These 12 tracks, along with all the music on the single-CD version of “Unzipped”, will also be available on double-CD, and double-LP.
“Some of my favorite love songs are on disc one of this collection… and I LOVE, love songs,” says Coverdale. “Though reluctant at first to go ‘unzipped’ in public, the shows I did with Adrian Vandenberg in 1997, and then Doug Aldrich in 2006, were incredibly memorable… primarily because it gave me an opportunity to be ‘at one’ with the crowd… some songs ask for a softer touch… and those are the songs we have here in this collection. Coverdale continues: “These songs are some of the most personal I’ve been involved with through my almost five decades as a professional musician, singer and composer…This is me at my most unguarded… innocent… writing, as I still do, for the fun… the expression… the poetry… all LOVE songs.”
