I've always considered the short-lived '84-'85 Powell/Coverdale/Sykes/Murray line-up the very last chapter of Whitesnake's classic years. These four guys never actually worked together in a recording studio, but the existing live footage from this eight-month long era is simply fantastic, so powerful. Don't get me wrong, I like most of the '1987' album and also think their last couple of records are quite consistent, but the 78-85 period of Whitesnake will always be very special to me. I bought this nice US copy of the 'Love Ain't No Stranger' single at Amoeba Music, Sunset Blvd, Hollywood a few years ago. If heaven exists, I'm sure it looks like that record store.
