In 2017, to mark the 30th anniversary of their most successful album "WHITESNAKE" a Deluxe Package was released on Rhino Records to colossal success.
The partnership with Rhino has continued with the recent release of "UNZIPPED," a collection of rare and unreleased acoustic performances over the last 20 years, a truly extraordinary opportunity to hear some of the Whitesnake classics as you have never heard them before.
