Whitesnake Live in Japan 1984 on DVD

  • Apparantly a semi- if not illegal release.... Amazon in Germany are only offering it via Marketplace sellers, Play.com in the UK has yet listed it with a June release date, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    Whitesnake, Live in Japan 1984 is now available on DVD from a company called Masterplan - looks like a German release.

    The same company has put out Led Zep's Earls Court 1975 show recently.

    While I have only heard about the Zep release, I actually bought a copy of the Whitesnake DVD yesterday, a cheapo for € 9,99 funnily enough with the (almost) current line-up (Mendoza on bass) on the cover (:mad: what were they thinking, or were they thinking at all, actually?????? :huh:), but obviously a transfer from the Japanese Laserdisc of Live in Japan 1984 on the disc, including the interview bits, back- and offstage footage from the Tour of the Coverdale, Sykes, Powell, Murray line-up - Mel Galley very unfortunately being absent, we all know why.

    Richard Balley (sic!), that should be Bailey I guess is listed playing keyboards but not seen on or off stage!?

    Still, it's an okay transfer and very enjoyable to watch....

    Cover scans attached...
    It's an ALL Regions NTSC disc btw.

    The cover art indicates its produced by 'Langley' & would seem to have the correct band line-up on the cover.

    Meanwhile, Play.com(UK) advertises this:

  • Sounds fake to me. There is so much pro shot stuff and artists just sit on it while they are getting ripped off. They should just put it out for real. Sad for the fans, sad for the artists.
