SNAKECHARMER Feat. Former WHITESNAKE, BLACK SABBATH, WISHBONE ASH Members To Release 4CD Anthology Box Set

British hard rock supergroup, Snakecharmer, was formed in 2013 by former members of Whitesnake, Wishbone Ash, and Thunder. The resulting lineup is a veritable who's-who of classic hard rock: vocalist Chris Ousey (Heartland), guitarist Laurie Wisefield (Wishbone Ash), drummer Harry James (Thunder), keyboardist Adam Wakeman (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath live), and guitarist Micky Moody (Whitesnake).

Given the band's pedigree, it was inevitable that the music would sound like good-time, classic melodic hard rock with a blues edge, their eponymous debut was released in 2013 by Frontiers. The response from fans and critics alike was rapturous, and the band toured to wide acclaim.

In 2015, Moody left the band, replaced by young Irish-born virtuoso Simon McBride. Snakecharmer's follow up album, Second Skin, arrived in 2017.

This 4CD box set collects the bands two studio albums as well as two live shows from Milton Keynes which show the band at work in a live environment, the booklet has notes by Classic Rock's Dave Ling talking to the band about their career as well as newly mastered studio albums done by Tony Dixon.
