Smile You Are The Music,We're Just The Band

I love it, because I have that album. It is funky and soulful hard rock. A perfect album for fans of real R & B

Hmm...I don't think any fans of real R&B would be satisfied by the rock sounds of Trapeze.

Cheers..Todd

Hey Todd, the blending of Funk and Rock are perfectly demonstrated on Trapeze's "You Are The Music...We're Just The Band". This album was a slight departure from the 'heavier' sound of Medusa but IMHO just as good!!!! By all means, SoundMaster, PICK IT UP!!!!

It's a great album, whatever you want to call it - funk, soul, thrash metal, jazz, etc. LOL

Cheers..Todd

I like YATM quite a lot, there are some great songs on the album.

Irritatingly I haven't got Medusa and I can't find a copy on CD anywhere. I don't get why it hasn't been reissued as both YATM and the original Trapeze albums have.

YATM album

Try this website PLAY.COM, you might find it there. Just go to http://play.com/. If it is not available on that site, try Amazon and go to www.amazon.co.uk

I finally received my copy last week.

Holy crap, does this kick ass!! Even more reason to believe some negative karma followed Glenn's early career as this band should have been MASSIVE! This record rocks, grooves and just kicks my ass all over the place!!!

thanks for recommending it!!

If you like this and you Glenn fans won't thank me for saying this but Hot wire has some great songs on it too with Mel doing the vocal work!
Cheers, Hackney

I'll give you thanks Hackney

Hot Wire is a great album. "Midnight Flyer" is probably my favorite off of that album. They played that track on the radio a lot back in my high school days.

The Hold On album with Pete Goalby is great also.

1974 BBC recording

I've just been looking at some of the old threads on the site and came across a mention of John Ogden playing congas with Trapeze back in '74. There's a reference by Ad about a tape by the BBC which has Oggers on it. I work with him, and was just showing him his name up in lights on this site. He retires on March 17, and I would love to try and get him a copy of this recording.
Can anyone help?

You can hear one full song here - What Is A Woman's Role - featuring John and taken from this particular BBC appearance in 1973. The quality isn't that great, but good enough

Also, feel free to peruse the Trapeze - A Brief History page - if you happen to see any inaccuracies, do let me know, although I believe it's pretty accurate.

Thanks again for all your info and do let the guys know that there are many appreciative fans here as you've seen.

Perhaps someone can help hackney out with a copy of the show - I would, but it's still buried in a box somewhere after Shirean and I's Coast To Coast move last year Thanks folks.

Hey David , thank you so much for your reply. There's so much stuff on the brief history link, it really takes me back. I'll get Oggers to give it the once over, cos he's the real deal in terms of rock n roll history particularly the Midlands scene of the 60s 70s.
Talk to you soon, Hackney

Smile Feel It Inside

While we are on the subject of Hot Wire, I note with some amusement that one of the out and out funkiest songs they ever did featured Mel on lead vocals; Feel It Inside. And I believe that when Trapeze performed their reunion shows in the early 90's, this song was sometimes performed.....perhaps someone out there who saw one of those shows will bear this fact out.

Tracks like Midnight Flyer always make me flash on living in San Antonio....fond memories! And I can't hear Back Street Love without thinking of the late, great Joe Anthony; the self proclaimed Godfather of Rock N Roll and a fixture on 99.5 KISS on Saturday nights. I worked in the service bar of the Barn Door Restaurant and had my radio going all night.....the music he introduced me to on his free form show was just staggering!

Nothin' for nothin'

Hey Cap, how are you?
I downloaded a fantastic bluesey track by the band called Nothin' for nothin', and I can't remember ever hearing it before I certainly don't recall ever seeing it on disk. Any ideas?

Nothing For Nothing

It's on the self-titled 'Trapeze' album - released after 'Hot Wire' and prior to 'Hold On'.

You're correct Capt., Trapeze did play Feel It Inside on some of their '94 dates. I was lucky enough to hear it at the St. Louis show.

I love "You Are The Music"!! My favorite off the record has always been the opener, Keepin' Time. Nothing beats "Medusa" though.
