Whitesnake / Ready an' Willing

With Deep Purple alumnae Jon Lord and Ian Paice on board, David Coverdale’s Whitesnake took a turn for the soulful on their third slab, Ready an’ Willing waxed in 1980.  Veteran metal bassist Neil Murray rolls his treble up to Jaco / Jack Bruce / Andy Fraser resonance on this forgotten gem, plying funky in-the-pocket grooves not usually associated with the genre.
