Whitesnake - 'Judgment Day' (Look Back)

The night is gone
The time has come
To find a new day has begun
An' it promises to stay
To soothe the pain of wasted years
An' kiss away the bitter tears
A love to light the way

And from the darkness
Comes a smile
That reaches out for many miles
Touching everyone
No more shadows of the past
Your spirit free to fly at last
Shining in the sun

Like the rolling thunder
I feel the power of love
It's a gift from heaven
And the Lord above

We walk toward desire
Hand and hand
Through fields of fire
With only love to light the way
On the road to Judgment Day

Take it easy, take it slow
I'll take you anywhere you wanna go
Places never seen before
'Cause I love you, an' I need you
I'll do my best to please you
My love can open any door

When you hear the thunder
In your darkest night
I'll be there to hold you
When the lightning strikes

So don't you worry,
You can ease your mind
'Cause we'll be dancing
At the end of time

Who loves you, who needs you
Who'll do his best to please you
I love you, I need you
I'll get down on my knees

We walk toward desire
Hand and hand
Through fields of fire
With only love to light the way
On the road to Judgment Day

So don't you worry, baby
On the road to Judgment Day
Who loves you, who needs you
On the road to Judgment Day

So I love you, and I need you
My love can open any door
My love can open any door


Το επόμενο βήμα του ομώνυμου δίσκου των Whitesnake (ή "1987" όπως είναι επίσης γνωστό) ήταν αρκετά δύσκολο και καθοριστικό για την μπάντα του David Coverdale. Το "Λευκό Φίδι" και η εταιρεία τους έκαναν τα αδύνατα δυνατά να διατηρηθεί και να εδραιωθεί η πολύ μεγάλη επιτυχία του προηγούμενου δίσκου.

Στο πλαίσιο αυτό ήρθε ο Steve Vai στην θέση του John Sykes αν και η συνεισφορά του περιορίστηκε μόνο στο εκτελεστικό (κι όχι στο συνθετικό) κομμάτι. Το "Slip of the Tongue" κυκλοφόρησε τον Νοέμβριο του 1989. Η επιτυχία του "Whitesnake" δεν επαναλήφθηκε, αλλά ο δίσκος είχε τις στιγμές του. Μία από αυτές και το τραγούδι "Judgment Day".

Το τραγούδι "Judgment Day" (σύνθεση: David Coverdale, Adrian Vandenberg) αποτελεί και μέρος της νέας συλλογής των Whitesnake υπό τον τίτλο "Greatest Hits 2022 - Revisited - Remixed - Remastered", της οποίας κάποιες εκδόσεις κυκλοφορούν ήδη και οι υπόλοιπες θα "βγουν" μέσα στο καλοκαίρι...

Η συλλογή των Whitesnake 'Greatest Hits 2022'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Whitesnake founder and lead singer David Coverdale had 16 tracks remixed and remastered for this collection.

He explains: “We’ve definitely expanded on the original Greatest Hits, took them all out of the sonic time capsule of the ’80s and ’90s, and brought them up to date, sound-wise … as always, we have the original albums for those who consider them holy relics.

Keyboardist Derek Sherinian, who also appeared on Whitesnake’s recent Red, White and Blues trilogy, adds Hammond organ to more than half the songs on the collection. His scorching contributions can be heard on the #1 smash “Here I Go Again,” “Fool For Your Loving,” “You’re Gonna Break My Heart Again,” and more.

New performances by former Whitesnake guitarist Adrian Vandenberg can also be heard on “The Deeper The Love” and “Judgement Day” from the 1989 album, Slip of the Tongue. Along with those new additions, Coverdale also went back to the vault to unearth vintage performances by guitarist John Sykes that didn’t appear on the original recordings, including a solo on “Slide It In” and rhythm guitar on “Give Me All Your Love.”

Whitesnake Greatest Hits focuses extensively on three blockbuster albums the band released during the 1980s: 1984’s Slide It In (2x platinum), 1987’s Whitesnake (8x platinum), and 1989’s Slip of the Tongue (platinum). But the collection goes deeper with songs like “Sweet Lady Luck,” a b-side on the 12” single for “The Deeper The Love,” and “Forevermore,” the title track from the band’s 2011 album.

Whitesnake will embark upon a farewell tour in May with special guest, Europe. The first leg of “Whitesnake: The Farewell Tour” will start on May 10 in Dublin. Coverdale said: “I pray every day we can all make this happen & once again, share unforgettable evenings together & celebrate the amazing journey we have been on for almost 50 years!!!”»
