1984's SLIDE IT IN was the first album that showed that Whitesnake was truly attempting to make it big in the U.S. Its sound was becoming more radio-friendly, but still retained the biting hard rock edge present on its earlier albums--new guitarist John Sykes also proved to be the perfect foil for ex-Deep Purple frontman David Coverdale.
The set features such boisterous rockers as the album-opening title track, the grinding "Slow an' Easy," and the melodic "Love Ain't No Stranger." Although there was a 3-year break after SLIDE IT IN (during which Sykes would leave the band), the album set the stage perfectly for Whitesnake's eponymous 1987 worldwide mega-hit.
