The voice that has been a part of Deep Purple, Hughes/Thrall, HTP and of course his soloalbums Mr. Glenn Hughes is back with a brand new live album that is a summation of Glenn?s career.It?s available as a double audio CD and a single-disc DVD that was shot on January 11th 2004 before an audience of friends and selected people.
His live band included long-time guitarist JJ Marsh and keyboardplayer Ed Roth plus none other than Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith behind the drums. Helping out on backing vocals was Quite Riot singer Kevin DuBrow and ex-Santana man Alex Ligertwood and a second guitarist named George Nastos. You get to hear songs from his soloalbums as well from Trapeze (the track ?Seafull? and ?Medusa?), Hughes/Thrall (?First Step Of Love?) and of course couple a few Deep Purple classics.
This is a nice live album but I can?t stand Glenn Hughes when he screams his heart out a couple of spots on some of the songs but otherwise he sings top-notch and really shows what a fantastic singer he is. I just wish that he would have left out the screaming parts. This is definitely a must have for the die-hard fans of Glenn Hughes but it?s strickly just for them only.
On the CD version there are 2 bonus studio tracks that fans of Glenn might wanna check out. A nice live album with a good sound but nothing more,however it should please the fans of THE VOICE OF ROCK.
