GLENN HUGHES – “The Voice of Rock” – examines his own back pages on this historic in-concert recording. Over two nights, June 6th & 7th 2009, Hughes’ enthralled hometown audiences with his unique brand of rock-funk when he packed out The Robin 2 Hotel in Bilston, Wolverhampton, UK.
The first night, billed as ‘Glenn Hughes with his Full Band’ saw him performing music from his glory days with Deep Purple in 1973 on to 2009. Songs including ‘Muscle & Blood’ (from the album Hughes/Thrall), ‘You Got Soul’ (from Music for the Divine), ‘Don’t Let Me Bleed’ (from Soul Mover) and ‘Crave’ (from First Underground Nuclear Kitchen) Hughes has rarely performed in the UK before.
The second night, billed as ‘You Are the Music’: An Evening of Trapeze’ saw Hughes performing a full Trapeze set for the first time as a solo performer. Dedicated to the memory of his friend and former Trapeze guitarist Mel Galley, who passed away in July 2008, Hughes delivered emotionally charged versions of songs taken from the albums Medusa (‘Touch My Life’, ‘Black Cloud’, ‘Medusa’) and You Are the Music… We’re Just the Band (‘Way Back to the Bone’, ‘Coast to Coast’, ‘You Are the Music’).
The music is often heavy, sometimes graceful and never less than riveting. Hughes’ soulful, distinctive voice is superlative throughout, pleading, powerful and always from the heart.
Beautifully presented with superb sound quality, this DVD is a must for the Glenn Hughes aficionado and fans of Classic Rock.
