Whitesnake devotees have something to celebrate about this fall: one of the group's most underrated albums is getting revisited.

1997's Restless Heart, in fact, began life as an album credited solely to frontman David Coverdale, but the record company decided it would get better attention under a more recognizable name (despite Whitesnake having been largely dormant since 1989's Slip of the Tongue). All parties eventually compromised on "David Coverdale & Whitesnake," but Restless Heart wouldn't even get released in North America.

That all changes on Oct. 29. Coverdale, who's revisited a fair amount of his Whitesnake work in recent years with the Red, White & Blues Trilogy, has now remixed and resequenced the album, set for its first release in the States and a worldwide reissue. Restless Heart will be available on CD and 2LP silver vinyl, as well as part of a 4CD/1DVD box set that includes both mixes of the album, two discs of rare and unreleased early and alternate takes, music videos and behind-the-scenes info about the making of the album drawn from new interviews with Coverdale.

Hear the new remix of "You're So Fine" above and be on the lookout for more from the set as it draws closer to release!
