David Coverdale released his first solo album “White Snake” in February 1977, so it has been 40 years now. Produced by Roger Glover, it was the first of two albums that was issued when David was in limbo territory, unable to do concerts or perform with any other artist over a two year period due to his contract with Deep Purple (that he had left in 1976). Once that was over with he launched the band that was to become such a success story in its own right over the decades. But it all started here.

Seen above is a Japanese press item from back in the day (1974 shot) and if you want to listen to a track, my pick would be “Blindman”, a song that Whitesnake would rerecord later. Listen to it here.
