Ain’t No Love On The Heart Of The City By Whitesnake


How to play Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of City by Whitesnake released in 1980.

Originally released as a double-vinyl album, and double-play cassette, it utilises recordings made in 1978 and 1980. The album charted at number 5 on the UK Albums Chart, and number 146 on the Billboard 200. The cover was the new band’s first hit, and it became a staple of their live set.


Ain’t No Love in the Heart of the City” is a 1974 R&B song, written by Michael Price and Dan Walsh, and first recorded by Bobby “Blue” Bland for the ABC Dunhill album Dreamer. While Bland scored a minor hit with the song, landing in the top ten of the R&B charts, it is perhaps best known through cover versions and samples. While it is ostensibly a love song, some critics have also heard it as a lament on urban poverty and hopelessness; the cover version by reggae singer Al Brown even changes most of the lyrics to magnify this emphasis. The song is featured on the soundtracks to the 2009 film Fighting and the 2011 crime drama The Lincoln Lawyer.
