GLENN HUGHES ‘Soulfully Live In The City Of Angels’
Frontiers FRCD(2004)

A special one-off showcase gig recorded back in January of this year. Joining Glenn Hughes are long time cohorts Ed Roth (keys) and JJ Marsh (guitars) plus special guests including Red Hot Chilli Pepper’s drummer Chad Smith and ex-Quiet Riot vocalist Kevin DuBrow, who adds backing vocals on here.

As you’d expect Glenn Hughes is in fine vocal form, he really has rediscovered his form these past few years. All the songs on here have a real funky vibe due in part to Chad Smith’s drums and of course Mr Hughes funky basslines. You get newer numbers like ‘Higher Places’, the tribute to Led Zep’s John ‘Bonzo’ Bonham and the groovy ‘Written All Over Your Face’. Add to this a superb working of Deep Purple’s ‘Mistreated’, where guitarist JJ Marsh shows just how good he is.

Other Purple classics include ‘You Keep Me Moving’ and ‘Getting’ Tighter’ plus the sublime Trapeze song ‘Seafull’. There are two bonus studio tracks as well but sadly they aren’t on my review copy. Amazingly for a Glenn Hughes live album there is no version of Deep Purple’s ‘Burn’!

Without a doubt a real treat for fans and if you’ve yet to sample the delights of Glenn Hughes start here and then go buy some back catalogue. This release also appears as DVD with an interview with Glenn Hughes.

*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
