Whitesnake returns with another double live album! Hmm… seems like I’ve done a similar review before. Oh, yeah. I did: here, here, and here! So this is the second live album that Whitesnake has released in a matter of months. Made In Japan kind of came about as an official release by accident but Made In Britain/The World Record was actually a planned release. Like Made In Japan it too documents the band’s Forevermore tour from 2011. The difference being that album featured performances from Japan and these recordings were done in England (the Made In Britain portion) and internationally (The World Record portion… Get it? It’s a world record.).

This another one of those album titles I’m confused about. The band’s official website lists it as Made In Britain and acknowledges it is a two-disc album. Frontiers Records’ website lists it as Made In Britain – The World Record. Most other music sites refer to it as Made In Britain/The World Record. And the album art above is the only one that’s floating around and you can obviously see it is plainly called Made In Britain.

What can I say that I didn’t already say during my Made In Japan review? Whitesnake is still going strong, putting out great records and great live shows and great live albums. It’s amazing how good the Forevermore material sounds alongside the classics. This is the band’s sixth live album (four of them released in the last 7 years alone!) and while you may not need this album, it stands are as a great representation of the Forevermore era. I would recommend it over Made In Japan.

Highlights: “Steal Your Heart Away”, “Forevermore”, “Love Will Set You Free”, “My Evil Ways”, “Fare Thee Well”, “Ain’t No Love in the Heart of the City”, “Lay Down Your Love”, “One of These Days”
