Snowy White on his new album: The Situation. These songs are my expression of where I was in 201. p and down, good and bad, weak and strong – it’s all her. ust doing my thing as usual, enjoying playing with all my musician friends. The Situation – well, we’re all in a ‘situation’ of some kind or another. This Feeling – when did I lose it? Time passes and we all see changes in ourselves. LA Skip – Venice Beach in LA, watching the jugglers as the sun went down and the air cooled
Snowy White is one of a handful of classic blues-orientated British electric guitar players - musicians whose sound, technique and style has echoed the originality of the blues with the excitement of contemporary rock. Arriving in London in the early seventies with the classic ‘few pennies in his pocket’ he gradually made a name for himself among the local musicians and became respected as a tasteful player and an easy guy to get along with. In 1974 he toured the east coast of America, getting as far south as New Orleans and discovering that he thoroughly enjoyed being ‘on the road’. In 1978 the band’s keyboard player Rick Wright asked him to play guitar on his solo album, entitled 'Wet Dream,' which he recorded in the South of France. In 1979 Peter Green decided to head for the studio once more and invited Snowy along to jam.

Today, after some 220 performances around the globe (the last in late 2013), White looks back fondly at having dedicated so much time, even if it was to someone else’s music.
This German re-issue of Snowy White's self-titled 1985 album contains some fine guitar-based blues rock moments, including "Chinese Burn" and "Long Summer Days.
