The schedule for June…

June 1st, 2011 4 comments

Inexcusable? Not quite.
I did promise some Whitesnake last month but the way things turned out, I found myself short on time.
First it was computer equipment.
Among others, I had to pick a new scanner [the old Canon CanoScan LiDE 90 has been malfunctioning for the past 9 months], RMA my faulty Dell monitor [Quality Control these days is a joke – at least the warranty was still valid and the company’s return policy/service department is impeccable] and buy a new hard disk [you can’t have too much space]

Then came various doctors’ appointments, some scheduled -the cavity filling I’d kept postponing for instance-, some unexpected.
Like the blood donation request I got from a friend.
His father was about to undergo a heart surgery; fortunately, the operation went smoothly and the man is now back on his feet, alive and kicking 🙂
One note is still left on the calendar: tomorrow’s visit to the ophthalmologist – I think I’m falling apart 😛
Whatever the doctor prescribes, we all know what the best remedy is, don’t we?
A good dosage of politically incorrect (aka sexist) tunes by David Coverdale & co.
Those low octave vocals of his in conjunction with Doug Aldrich’s/Reb Beach’s double axe attack are bound to get your blood pumping at no time!

As an added bonus to visitors who were expecting “Good to be bad” & “Forevermore” sooner, I decided to throw in the 2007 Remaster of “Come an’ get it” as well.
Get a taste of Whitesnake’s early Hard Rocking Blues period, an equally important era often overlooked in favour of the post-1987 material.
How’s that for compensation?

Pending from last month:
Def Leppard – “Pyromania” [2-CD set Deluxe Edition]
Whitesnake – “Good to be bad” [Ltd. edition cardboard box inc. bonus CD]
Whitesnake – “Forevermore” [Deluxe edition CD+DVD]

New additions, not necessarily in this order:
Whitesnake – “Come an’ get it” [2007 Remaster]
Saxon – “The eagle has landed” [2006 Reissue]
Russell Allen/Jørn Lande – “The showdown
Alice Cooper – “Raise your fist and yell
Great White – “Once bitten
Al Di Meola & Leonid Agutin – “Cosmopolitan life” [Enhanced CD]
Wig Wam – “Wig Wamania
Journey – “Eclipse
