"Good things come to those who wait, and this DVD was well worth the wait. David Coverdale has surrounded himself with some of the finest, best rock n roll road dogs that money can buy. Tommy Aldrige (the only real hold over from any other Wsnake lineup) is the most insane drummer of all of rock. This guy beats the skins like an animal. He makes these songs sound like a locomotive is coming through your house!!! Marco Mendozo, is Tommy's partner in crime. Together they provide a solid, rock foundation to the songs, and they've been playing together for years (i.e. Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent, etc.). Reb Beach, a fine player who gave Dokken a much awaited boot in the nuts on their 1999 Erase the Slate, boy can this guy play! the Ex-Winger axeman, is more reserved in this band, relying of the rhythm guitarist role, which he supremely does, and lets the true star of the show, Doug Aldrich, take care of most of the lead guitar and solos. I am only familiar with Doug through Dio's Killing the Dragon release (which wasn't all that impressive) and the Evil or Devine DVD (which was where I saw first hand this guy can play). Somehow though, Doug has a firecracker up his ass, because this guy is a maniac on the guitar. His solos are the hottest I have seen anyone do live lately (either on stage or DVD...and archive DVD releases don't count!). He reminds me alot of Randy Rhoads...without comparing the two though...Doug just ignites the old Whitesnake solos, just loke Rhoads ignited on the old Sabbath stuff with Ozzy back in the day (which coincidentally Tommy Aldridge was part of way back when). I am just amazed at the virtuosoness of Doug, he really makes these performances incrediable and gives this DVD a well deserved 5 stars. I don't want to ignore the main man, Mr. Coverdale, he is still after 32 plus years in the biz, an incredible showman. His pipes are still clean, and he stalks the stage like a predator in style. This band he's assembled is hands down his finiest line up ever, and I had the pleasure of witnessing it live back in 2004 during a US tour with the Scorps and Dokken. This even surpasses the Vai/Vandenberg lineup, from 1989 - 1990, which was incredible but at the same time a bit superficial for me. Thwe song list is outstanding, and again, Doug's playing warrant's this a five star release, and all is forgiven not including (perhaps their best song) Slide It In, since they open with Deep Purple's Burn! Even comes with a bonus CD of highlights, can't go wrong. Enjoy, and if you can catch this band live before it's too late."
Live at Last.... the Blues Rock Gods

"No band delivers blues rock, rock 'n' roll anthems & power ballads like Whitesnake... Formed from the ashes of Deep Purple by lead singer David Coverdale.
In concert, Whitesnake presents captivating shows that in the words of lead singer David Coverdale, "Grabs you by the short & curlies & doesn't let go!!"
Recorded live during the 2004 "Live... In the Still of the Night" UK tour, the DVD features all of Whitesnake's greatest hits plus many fan favorites. The DVD captures the excitement and vitality of the band's performance before adoring all-ages crowds who sing along to every song.
The DVD, directed by celebrated live concert director Hamish Hamilton, also boasts a behind-the-scenes documentary and photo gallery. A 10-song, 59 minute live CD is included in the package.

Words Can't Describe It

"Whoa! Now I've said it. This SHOW on DVD tops any I've seen and living in Southern Caliornia USA I've seen many a Rock Concert in the last 40 years. If this display of Rock history dosen't excite you and make your blood flow you'd better see a doctor. David Coverdale's voice is so fantastic and the band so tight. Tommy Aldridge's drum solo is a marvel in itself. I first heard Whitesnake in 1982 and Coverdale's lyrics are the sound trac to my life. The power of Blues Rock lives. Buy it, see it, love it. I went to Hollywood and saw'em live 6/05 but, you can't see'em like this DVD. Sinatra was my Dad's musical icon and Coverdale is mine. Macho is a weak adjective. Beautifuly done, T.R. at the beach"
