Guest review by
Ace Frawley

The Rolling Stones once famously sang "I can't get no satisfaction", but for Whitesnake there is only joyous "sweet satisfaction" to be had with their 1980 song and album of the same name: Ready An' Willing.

Released in 1980, this was the third studio album for British band Whitesnake - a band formed out of the ashes of Deep Purple by Mark III singer David Coverdale. By this stage of their career Whitesnake were pretty big in their homeland, the UK. They even headlined Saturday night at the big Reading Festival that same year. Two singles from Ready an' Willing charted in the UK - "Fool for Your Loving" reached #13 in the mainstream charts and the title track made #43. It was only later in the decade that they re-invented their look, to appeal to glam metal fans, and went on to conquer the huge US market, even re-recording earlier songs.

Rating: 8 Any whitesnake album always puts me in a good mood. Very bluesy, but still keeping that hard rock edge.

Rating: 7 I reckon this is a really solid album. David Coverdale has a good voice, no doubt about it.
