LOS ANGELES – Whitesnake scored the band’s third consecutive platinum record with its eighth studio album, Slip of the Tongue. Originally released in November 1989, it peaked at number 10 on the U.K. and U.S. album charts thanks largely to its two Top 40 hits – “Fool For Your Loving” and “The Deeper The Love.” The fan favorite turns 30 this year and Rhino is celebrating with several new versions, including a colossal seven-disc boxed set.

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.
