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 πŸ™‚
One note is still left on the calendar: tomorrow’s visit to the ophthalmologist – I think I’m falling apart πŸ˜›
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 β€œGood to be bad” & β€œForevermore” sooner, I decided to throw in the 2007 Remaster of β€œCome 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 – β€œPyromania” [2-CD set Deluxe Edition] βœ”
Whitesnake – β€œGood to be bad” [Ltd. edition cardboard box inc. bonus CD] βœ”
Whitesnake – β€œForevermore” [Deluxe edition CD+DVD] βœ”

New additions, not necessarily in this order:
Whitesnake – β€œCome an’ get it” [2007 Remaster] βœ”
Saxon – β€œThe eagle has landed” [2006 Reissue] βœ”
Russell Allen/JΓΈrn Lande – β€œThe showdown” βœ”
Alice Cooper – β€œRaise your fist and yell” βœ”
Great White – β€œOnce bitten” βœ”
Al Di Meola & Leonid Agutin – β€œCosmopolitan life” [Enhanced CD] βœ”
Wig Wam – β€œWig Wamania” βœ”
Journey – β€œEclipse” βœ”
