BTW Here We Go Again was Ray Charles. Here I Go Again was by Whitesnake and they were crap by the time they had a hit with that song.



Apologies to Ray for bringing him into things!

But when were they good exactly? This is a band, remember, who released an album entitled Love Hunter in the same year as the Teardrop Explodes released Sleeping Gas.

I know what I was listening to!


As Mooncat rghtly points out the early 80s version of that song trounces its 1987 re-record.

You have to be a bit of a softy for blues rock tight trouser business but the live album is a corker of its kind - up there with "Live & Dangerous". "Made In Japan" and Humble Pie "Rocking The Filmore" etc.

The Purps line up with Hughes and Coverdale was really good on its day but if you want to hear the number one, shining, solid gold justification for all things punk then the Liverpool 76 Purple bootleg speaks louder than a million Wakeman on Ice spectaculars. One listen has been known to make hardened coke heads give up the white powders for good! Possibly the worst rock recording ever made.
