Whitesnake celebrates the blues sound that helped inspire its multi-platinum career on a new collection that features remixed and remastered versions of the groups best blues-rock songs. The Blues Album is the third and final release in the bands Red, White and Blues Trilogy, a series of compilations organised by musical themes that began earlier in 2020 with Love Songs (red) and The Rock Album (white). The new compilation delivers a potent mix of hits and deep tracks that originally appeared between 1984 and 2011 on six Whitesnake studio albums and Coverdales solo album, Into the Light.
The Blues Album showcases two of the bands biggest songs: Slow An Easy, a big hit in 1984 from Whitesnakes massive album Slide It In, and the smash Give Me All Your Love from the bands 1987 self-titled globally successful album. Other choice tracks from Whitesnake are also featured: Looking For Love and Crying In The Rain, and Steal Your Heart Away. The collection also includes If You Want Me, a studio recording released in 2006 as a bonus track on the live album, Livein the Shadows of the Blues. Coverdale also taps his 2000 solo album, Into the Light, for The River Song.
