Le 18 août 1990, Whitesnake faisait donc la vedette du festival de Castle Donington, il était passé quelques jours plus tôt au Parc Floral de Vincennes au sud de Paris avec Aerosmith et Poison en Opening Act.
Comme lors de la prestation parisienne, on assiste ici à un concert hyper rodé, distillé par de grands professionnels mais qui manque sérieusement de spontanéité et de folie.
La paire rythmique Rudy Sarzo (qui fit ses armes avec les pignoufs de Quiet Riot puis ce grand enfant d'Ozzy Osbourne) et Tommy Aldridge (qui a gagné en puissance depuis son passage dans le Pat Travers Band mais a perdu en finesse) assure très bien mais quand on les compare à la paire Neil Murray-Ian Paice...
Adrian Vandenberg, prodige hollandais (son chorus sur "Flying Dutchman" vaut son pesant d'or) qui avait composé la majeure partie de "Slip of the Tongue" mais n'avait pu jouer sur le disque pour des problèmes qui sont toujours resté obscurs est peut être la véritable bonne surprise de ce disque.
Steve Vai (élève de Frank Zappa et de Joe Satriani) est certes un virtuose ébouriffant mais dont la vélocité a du mal à se contenter des morceaux assez ramassés du groupe, quant à David Coverdale sa voix est toujours aussi prenante mais s'il avait pu se débarrasser de son "syndrome plantien" on en aurait été ravi.
Les morceaux récents "Slip of the Tongue", "Kitten Got Claws", "Still of the Night" voisinent avec les anciens classiques "Slide it In", "Here I go Again", "Fool for yout Lovin'" et le splendide "Ain't no Love in The heart of the City".

Ce package 2 CD/1 DVD "Live At Donington 1990", est l'unique témoignage live de Whitesnake avec Steve Vai. Il s'agit donc de la version Américaine du "Snake" et c'est de la tournée promotionnant les albums "Slip Of The Tongue" mais aussi "1987" voir "Slide It In" (version U.S) dont il est question principalement.
Concernant le DVD ne cherchez pas la qualité des produits actuels, on n'est en pleine période "glam/hair metal" et le groupe apparaît en quelque sorte "plus beau" que l'image elle-même. C'est la vision d'un (gros) groupe filmé durant un festival en plein air par les caméras du site en '90 (presque un "Official Bootleg"). Par contre en ce qui concerne le concert sur CD, pas de problèmes c'est le gros son et ça dépote sévère. Coverdale qui use d'un timbre de voix moins chaud mais plus criard, et le groupe présent n'ont pas le feeling du "Classic Line-Up" (c'est flagrant sur "Ain't No Love In The heart Of The City"). On n'a donc une relecture de certains titres, parfois déstabilisante comme cette version de "Slide It In" un brin trop dénaturalisée. Le seul clin d'œil au passé du groupe, c'est quand Coverdale présente "Crying In The Rain", comme figurant sur les albums "1987" (mais aussi sur "Saints & Sinners"). les versions des "Here I Go Again" "Slow An' Easy" et "Fool For Your Loving" sont interprétées, par la formation qui a enregistré "Slip Of The Tongue". A rassembler des "mercenaires" David a reconstitué un line-up à l'âme moins blues, mais qui dépote sévère. Avec une section rythmique constitué de Rudy Sarzo à la basse et de Tommy "100.

Pour le show, pas de soucis. Coverdale s'était entouré d'une équipe de tueurs. La puissance du groupe n'a d'égale que sa maitrise technique. Tommy Aldrige est tout simplement impressionant et ressort grand vainqueur de l'histoire. Dommage qu'il n'y ait aucun échange entre Vandenberg et Vai; aucun regard, chacun de son coté de la scène. Ils semblent plus en concurrence qu'autre chose. Coverdale est bien en voix et Rudy Sarzo fait l'amour à sa basse.
Le travail qui a été fait sur le son est excellent, c'est surpuissant. Par contre, on n'entend du coup quasiment pas le public; sur "Bad boys", quand David tend le micro vers le public, ça fait un grand vide, et il faut attendre "Ain't no love in the heart of the city", quand les instruments s'arrêtent, pour entendre les 72500 personnes présentes.
Après, qu'on aime ou pas ce Withesnake-là est une autre histoire qui dépend des goûts de chacun.

Par contre, niveau image, aïe aïe aïe. Les couleurs sont hyper pâles, parfois c'est presque flou, on voit mal les détails. L'autre gros soucis, ce sont les incessants passages au ralenti, avec les cheveux des musiciens qui flottent dans les airs. Un ou deux au passage, ça passerait, mais il y en a là beaucoup trop, et on a du coup souvent l'impression de regarder un clip fait à partir d'images live. Ce sentiment est renforcé par la maitrise technique du groupe qui joue les morceaux parfaitement et par le fait qu'on n'entende pas le public. Quant aux passages en noir et blanc, ils ne rendent pas l'effet esthétique escompté car là non plus, l'image n'est pas assez nette pour ça.

La partie "making of Slip of the tongue" est sympathique.

HASH(0x99befbdc) étoiles sur 5 AN INSTANT CLASSIC 20 juin 2011
Par Nikiforos V. Skoumas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Finally one of the most requested recordings in hard rock gets an official release in June 2011 by "Frontiers Records". This is arguably "Whitesnake" at the peak of their international popularity headlining the "Monsters of rock" festival in the UK with the legendary line up of David Coverdale (v), Andrian Vandenberg (g), Steve Vai (g), Rudy Sarzo (b) and Tommy Aldridge (d).

BACKGROUND OF WHITESNAKE AT DONNINGTON

This 2CD plus DVD set is a perfect documentation of "Whitesnake"s headline performance at the "Monster of Rock 1990" festival at Donnington, England. "Whitesnake" had previously performed at "Monsters of Rock" in 1980 and 1983-at which time they also headlined and shot a live video for a domestic release entitled "Whitesnake Commandos".

THE RECORDINGS AND SURROUNDING CIRCUMSTANCES

It has to be addressed that the recordings of audio and video were NEVER intended to serve for a commercial release. The audio was recorded and transmitted live by the BBC radio; the video served as real-time footage for the large video-walls of the event so that all 75.000 people could have a decent view of what was happening on stage.
The sound has been remixed and re-mastered to perfection, all instruments come through clearly, capturing each musician's distinct sound. Tommy Adridge's drum attack is up front in the mix with all toms and cymbals audible, Rudy Sarzo's bass is clean and ever-present while the guitars are perfectly defined bringing every minor improvisation to front, you will actually be able to tell the difference between Vandenberg's and Vai's sound from the CD alone.

The video, as mentioned above, was professionally shot but not for the purpose of a video-release, simply for direct transmission. This
practically implies that you get many cameras covering the event but not all angles are perfect, in addition the definition is found to be slightly lacking and finally the colours are rather imbalanced. At the end of the day, however, the content more than makes up for the lack of HD: you get all the rock-star poses from the band, all stage theatrics have been captured and most importantly all members have a respectable video presence on each and every song, so you get to see all five snakes playing and moving around the large stage.

EXTRA FEATURES

The DVD provides the option for 2.0 stereo and 5.1 surround sound which is quite a feat for an early recording as this; both options are impeccable. In terms of bonus material there is a gallery with stills from the same era but most importantly an extensive behind the scenes video. This video goes through the recording process of the multi platinum "Slip of the tongue" album finding the band in the studio near lake Tahoe testing ideas and having fun, the entry of Steve Vai in the line up, the process of filming the promo videos for the album as well as live footage, all topped by commentary by David Cloverdale who is the ideal narrator for such a journey.

OVERALL

"Live at Donnington 1990" is a breathtaking documentation of the "Whitesnake" golden era and captures nothing less than a band at the top of hard rock/hair metal world. Whatever limitations of the footage do not make this package any less enjoyable and certainly take nothing away from the amazing performances that were delivered that night. Needless to say, this is a must for anyone in 80s rock.

HASH(0x99bf58b8) étoiles sur 5 The audio is excellent, video not so great. 9 juin 2011
Par Christopher Glenn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I first just want to say that I am very excited that this show has finally been released.

I purchased the CD/DVD combo, and while the performance and audio quality are excellent, I'm not a huge fan of the video. My problem is not with the video quality itself, since it's about what I expected given when it was shot and because it was not filmed for an official release. The video does, however, look much better on my smaller 37" TV than it does on my 52" TV. One thing that I do not like about the video is that it's comprised mostly of individual close-ups, with very few shots showing more than one band member at a time. I'm guessing that this is because they had to use the video feeds that were displayed on the big screens during the actual concert, which are usually all close-up shots. Some other annoying things about the video are that the video often changes from color to black & white, and there are several cheesy slo-mo effects used througout the video.

Even though I don't care much for the DVD, the CDs alone get 5 stars and make this is an excellent purchase for the price. This concert will be getting a lot of play time in my CD player and on my iPod.

HASH(0x99bf73a8) étoiles sur 5 Definite upgrade to the long available freely traded versions 10 juin 2011
Par Stephen Johansson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I had my misgivings about purchasing the "Live At Donington 1990" disc because of other "officially released" versions of shows from other artists that have come out lately have failed to be an upgrade over the versions that have been available on the free trade boards for years. Notably these are the "Live at LA Forum 1983" disc that came with the legacy edition of Def Leppard's "Pyromania" which actually sounds WORSE than the bootleg (how they managed that, I have no idea) and the Dio "Live At Donington" which I bought the Japanese SHM version and is only a slight improvement over the free trade versions. I am happy to say that this release is a dramatic improvement over the free trade versions. All the instruments have depth and the vocals sound great. They did stick with a very live sound in the production. Yes, that does sound stupid but this disc actually sounds like you're at a concert; the audience is up in the mix, the drums sound how they should sound at a concert. Too many live albums get produced like studio albums and lose that live vibe and feel to them but "Live At Donington 1990" actually does make you feel like you're at the show.

The only issue I have with any of the performances is the Steve Vai "solo" track "For The Love Of God." It just doesn't have the same impact as live versions that I've heard with his own back up band. This could be due to the fact that Vandenberg, Sarzo and Aldridge felt that Vai treated them AS a backing band and didn't feel like putting their all into it or they're not used to performing instrumentals or a hundred other reasons but, whatever the reason, the performance on this song falls flat. Other than that, it's a great representation of live 'Snake at that moment in time and would be a worthy addition to any CD collection.

HASH(0x99bf78d0) étoiles sur 5 Come over here, baby...an essential 80s/90s time capsule treasure. 4 novembre 2011
Par Mike - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
It's only a "nineties" album by sheer technicality...Slip of the Tongue (W/Dvd Aniv) was released on November 18, 1989, and this Donnington set is from August 18, 1990 (headlining a bill that included Aerosmith, Poison, Quireboys, and Thunder). I see it as more of a "last gasp of classic 1980s hair metal." After "Slip," there wouldn't be another Whitesnake album until Restless Heart, and that was actually a Coverdale solo album released under the Whitesnake logo due to the insistence of his record label.

In addition to his tenure with Frank Zappa and his solo works, Steve Vai had become well known for a bit of band hopping: Alcatrazz, Disturbing the Peace (1985), Public Image Limited, Compact Disc (1985), and two albums with the post-Van Halen David Lee Roth.

As work began on the follow-up to their ridiculously popular album Whitesnake, guitarist Vivian Campbell left the band, and second guitarist Adrian "The Flying Dutchman" Vandenberg suffered a wrist injury that took him out of the game. Vai stepped in and played all of the guitars on "Slip," and by the time of the Donnington show, Vandenberg was back.

In terms of "serious music" and "perfect audiophile sound quality" and virtually any egghead qualifier you might want to slap on this CD/DVD (yes, buy the package that includes BOTH), you can't bring those things into a discussion about Whitesnake. It's always been about excess, about crude "boys in the band" behavior (Coverdale often ping-pongs between gentleman and pig in his stage banter).

And Vai? This is the guy who successfully transcribed Frank Zappa's "The Black Page," a piece of music so complex that most musicians would balk at attempting to play it. He's got the precision, he's got the Van Halen / Satriani "million notes a second" thing down cold, and at the same time, he's one of the true kings of wretched excess. Could there be a better onstage foil for Coverdale?

And for the record, Vandenberg wasn't all that impressed with Vai's contribution to "Slip."

The Donnington set serves up the key tracks from "Whitesnake" that you saw / heard a zillion times on MTV ("Is This Love," "Here I Go Again," the set-closing "Still Of The Night," plus "Bad Boys"), as well as 5 of the original 10 tracks from "Slip" ("Slip Of The Tongue," "Judgement Day," "Kitten's Got Claws," "Cheap & Nasty," "Fool For Your Loving"). There are solo segments from Vandenberg and Vai, plus the expected Whitesnake classics like "Slide It In."

It's big hair! It's loads and loads of "guitar face!" It's romantic "power ballads" balanced with infantile, sexist headbanging!

In short, it's an essential 80s/90s time capsule treasure.

Not everyone's cup of tea (just like frontman David Coverdale himself), but if you were there...ESPECIALLY if you were there, be it at Donnington or in front of your TV while those Tawny Kitaen videos seemingly played ON THE HOUR, 7 days a week, on MTV...you can't possibly be without this one.

HASH(0x99bf78e8) étoiles sur 5 A Good Addition To The Whitesnake Collection 29 juin 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
This CD/DVD combination affords us the opportunity to hear Whitesnake, one of the defining 80's hair bands (who are musically quite talented as well), in its prime with the Coverdale/Vandenburg/Vai/Sarzo/Aldridge lineup. Playing at Castle Donnington for the Monsters of Rock extravaganza, the set list here covers all of the usual Whitesnake hits. No casual listener should be unhappy.

Let's start with the good. The packaging, liner notes, and pictures for are superb. Coverdale goes into detail about the concert, the creation of the CD, the fact that "no expenses were spared" for the DVD portion and that the concert sound was given a thorough treatment in the studio. Transmitted by the BBC for radio broadcast, I would describe the sound on the CD's as better that I expected, given its age and source. Slightly bass heavy at times, there's no doubt that a moderate amount of compression was used either in the studio clean-up or was present during the original taping during the radio broadcast (or both). Nevertheless, as other reviewers have noted, everything comes through pretty clearly. Aldridge's drums sound great, Vandenberg and Vai's guitar's are at times split between left and right channels (and you can tell who's who almost immediately); Coverdale's vocals are slightly recessed, but it's not a problem - it just sounds more like a concert where you're back aways.

Clearly a good night, the band plays with tremendous energy and speed. The crowd's fired up and, with a little imagination, you can easily put yourself there about half-way back on the ground.

DVD footage is, as others have noted, not the best in terms of concert viewing. This might something good for a party where no one is watching the TV constantly, but is perhaps talking, listening and occasionally viewing as they pass by on their way to get another beverage.

Overall, a classic live album from Whitesnake from one of their career high points.
