Icon47 Ellis 3 - CD

Got the Ellis 3 cd over the Holiday week and it is alot better than I expected. Sometimes you hear Glenn is doing some vocal work on a cd and you buy it to find that the only song worth its weight in gold is the one Glenn is on. Wet Paint comes to mind

That is not the case here. My first impressions are of a female vocalist in the style of Sass Jordan. The cd has 13 tracks and clocks in at slightly over 70 minutes. You are not cheated on length!

The style of the cd is a bluesy funk similar to what we expect from Glenn. Have you seen her would be a great Glenn Hughes song. I can imagine him singing it. The cd is loaded with up tempo rock with a sprinkling of slow songs. A nice cover of Stevie Wonder's Superstition here. Some may not like it as it strays from the original a little.

Now the Glenn song is what I was and most of us are interested in. Growing Wise starts out with Glenn singing and you know right away you will like it. Glenn's voice is in prime form as usual. He shows his vocal range and proves he is like a fine wine-better over time!!

Overall the cd is good. A little bit of everything here. Some hard rock, some funky blues, some instrumentals, some ballads. If you like diversity you will like this. Buy it!!
