Is this love - Whitesnake

Rock ballads are quite an interesting phenomenon. What drives these tough looking men, who usually shake their heads to screaming guitar solos and thundering drums to suddenly start making softhearted ballads? Who knows... Anyway, the result is usually interesting.

'Is this love' is a power ballad like only Eighties rock bands could bring forth. A number 2 hit in America and peaking at number 23 in the Netherlands, the single was promoted with a video containing all the Eighties rock cliches: men with big hair, sexy women on cars and of course... the smoke machine.

My collection: 7"single no. 597
Found: Free Record Shop, Den Haag, February 25, 1988
Cost: 6,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Is this love' / 'Standing in the shadows'
