Whitesnake / Slip of the Tongue 30th anniversary box set & reissues

6CD+DVD super deluxe • 2CD deluxe • 2LP vinyl • expanded CD


Whitesnake‘s 1989 album Slip of the Tongue is to be reissued for its 30th anniversary across four different physical editions including a seven-disc super deluxe which offers a host of rare and unreleased material.

The album went top ten on both sides of the Atlantic although singles-wise neither ‘Fool For Your Loving’ nor ‘The Deeper The Love’ troubled the higher reaches of the mainstream pop charts. Third 45, ‘Now You’re Gone’, actually did the best in the UK, peaking at 31.

Nevertheless, Rhino are not going to let a 30th birthday go uncelebrated and have assembled a mammoth 6CD+DVD super deluxe which features “unreleased versions of every album track” as well as monitor mixes, demos, B-sides, alt mixes and nearly two dozen previously unreleased tracks taken from the session tapes.



The super deluxe box also includes a CD of Slip of the Tongue: The Wagging Tongue Edition which was issued exclusively on vinyl in 1989. It features David Coverdale being interviewed about each track followed by the song.

The final CD in the box set features Whitesnake’s headling performance at the Monsters of Rock Festival at Castle Donington. That concert is also included on the DVD along with videos and a few extras. The promos have been restored and remixed in 5.1 surround sound for the first time.

This super deluxe is packaged in a box that looks the same size as the Simple Minds/Tears For Fears reissues and includes a 60-page hardbound book. A double CD deluxe is also available with a selection of the rare tracks and similarly a 2LP vinyl edition features some bonus material as well. A single CD remaster is the runt of the litter, but even that has seven bonus tracks.

Slip of the Tongue is reissued on 4 October 2019.
