Frontiers Records is excited to release all details about the highly anticipated ?Soulfully Live In The City Of Angels? from the mighty ?Voice of Rock? Glenn Hughes. ?Soulfully Live In The City Of Angels? is a welcome summation of Glenn?s progress during time and a permanent reminder of his considerable heritage as an artist and performer. Available as a double audio CD and a single-disc DVD, it was shot live on January 11th 2004 before an audience of friends and selected regulars at www.glennhughes.com.
Those privileged enough to have graced the soiree in the intimate setting at Sound Image studio in North Hollywood, California witnessed the bassist/vocalist?s current band of long-time guitarist JJ Marsh and keyboard player Ed Roth being swelled by none other than Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. Helping out on backing vocals are former Quiet Riot singer Kevin DuBrow and ex-Santana man Alex Ligertwood, with second guitarist George Nastos doubling up where appropriate.
The repertoire is balanced between latter-day choices like ?Written All Over Your Face?, ?Higher Places (Song For Bonzo)?, ?Wherever You Go? and ?Can?t Stop The Flood? and the trusted crowd-pleasers. This includes selections from Trapeze (?Seafull? and ?Medusa?), Hughes/Thrall (?First Step Of Love?) and of course Deep Purple (?Mistreated?, ?Getting? Tighter? and ?You Keep On Movin??). ?I?m happy again and of course I love being up there on stage. You?ve got to see Glenn Hughes on the boards to really understand him?, reckons the man himself. ?I?m so excited that rock in general is coming again into a good head of steam and I also feel really good about where I am personally?. For definitive vindication of the above theory, just insert the CD or the DVD of ?Soulfully Live In The City Of Angels?, crank the volume levels and press the button marked ?play?!
