Whitesnake To Release ‘Still Good To Be Bad’ Retrospective

February 26, 2023

Back in ’08, Whitesnake released “Good To Be Bad”, their 10th studio album and their first in over a decade. That album went Top 10 in the U.k. and spawned a huge world tour. Now, you hear songs like “Best Years” and “Summer Rain” alongside classics like “Here I Go Again” and “Still Of The Night”.

The band has decided to release the retrospective, “Still Good To Be Bad” on April 28 ’23 (a few days after the original album’s 15th anniversary). You’ll be able to get the collection on 4-CD/Blu-ray, with two new versions of the original album (one remastered and the other newly remixed), some rare and unreleased / live tracks, all music videos, interviews, and live performances from the “Good To Be Bad” World Tour.

Singer David Coverdale said of the tour, “We went out for two months and came back nine months later, and I had a big smile on my face and felt really energized. I thought, ‘Wow! I’ve got thirty years of music here that I can go out and play, and I don’t have to promote a new record…I can just have fun out there.'”

As for the Blu-ray, expect backstage video footage, live tracks like “Best Years”, “A Fool In Love” and “Can You Hear The Wind Blow” from the band’s 2008 European tour, acoustic performances, and an nterview with Eddie Trunk.

Which other bands do you wish would do the same thing with older albums?
