Live in Australia, on the 18th of June 2006 at Melbourne’s Manchester Lane, Hughes brought his unique brand of rock-funk to a new audience.
These live tracks document his first ever *Melbourne* solo show. Indeed, this is one of Britain’s greatest rock singers in acoustic mode; intimate and live, and his soulful, distinctive voice is in top-notch condition throughout: he pleads, he soars, he rocks and he croons.
– I Found A Woman
– This Time Around
– Nights In White Satin
– Last Mistake
– Whiter Shade Of Pale

“The promo edit of the new Glenn Hughes tracks will be uploaded to our iPhone and Android apps at 15:00 GMT tomorrow, Saturday 26th June (7:00AM PDT / 10:00AM EDT). This will be the first place anyone will be able to hear the tracks, and they will be there for an hour only. The app is also the only place where you can currently see the design of the art print that will be sleeved with the EP in the boxed set of Glenn’s autobiography.
Glenn Hughes has made three brand new acoustic recordings for the EP which will be issued with the limited edition of his autobiography ‘Deep Purple and Beyond: The Life, Near Death, and Rebirth of a Rock Star’. The tracks are simply stunning, and we at Foruli are very excited to be releasing them.
The tracks are:
– What Is a Woman’s Role [previously recorded by Trapeze]
– Holy Man [previously recorded by Deep Purple]
– Dying to Live [previously unrecorded new song]
We are aware that not everybody has one of these phones, so we will be doing something similar on the web in a month or so.”
