Lightbulb HTP or BCC?

Hi all. It's quiet here. Thought id try and create a bit of a discussion.

I was listening to BCC Live in the car today. I was enjoying it, and i started to think about how Glenn said that the straight rock format wasn't really his thing, around the time of HTP, and in fact he was quite dismissive of the HTP albums.

So i thought about how enthusiastic he is about BCC, when he was so negative about HTP.

So is BCC, the songs, albums, musicians significantly better than HTP? It is slightly difficult to compare, because he is the main singer in BCC, whereas he obviously shared duties with JLT in HTP.

For what its worth i think HTP were just as good, if not better than BCC. Is that sacrilege?

So what do people think?

Paul

Well Paul, I am a HUGE fan of HTP and do prefer those albums, especially the live disc, to BCC. The HTP tunes still get me thinking of the Purple/Rainbow days and seem more spontaneous than the BCC stuff.
I enjoy them both greatly, but given the choice, I'd go with HTP.
That is just one opinion of many you should hear.

HTP got 2 great singers and they are in concert more powerfull (lot's of Purple and Rainbow classics). But BCC got great compositions and are more bluesy with Bonzo"s son behind the drumkit. So to me they are both GREAT

HTP Vs BCC

'The Ledge' is one I'd return to from the HTP debut.
Off the second HTP the track,which eludes me now,
where Steve Via guested got my attention.
Regarding BCC,I liked the punch and directness of 'One Last Soul'.
'Cold' live or studio is a killer-diller.''Little Secrets' with that descending George Harrison-esque chord progression is memorable.
'Collide' had that Zep-esque stop start riffing that wears a bit thin nowdays but I may warm to it in the context of the new album.
With BCC previously Glenn's funk-soul leanings were not really represented there-in, a shame.
A proper Hughes/Thrall new album and Tour would be a dream come true and would trump HTP and BCC for me anyway.

I try not to compare Glenn's collaborations, but do want to mention that he definitely seems to shine when he collaborates with other artists. Case in point: Hughes/Iommi, BCC, Deep Purple, to name a few. His solo work was primarily funk driven, which I always struggled with a bit.

BCC, though, is hard rock straight in your face; and while there is no new ground broken, the music is of the highest quality, which in the rock arena we don't get a lot of these days. I thoroughly enjoy it. I still regard "Fused" as his masterpiece though (as far as collaborations are concerned).

HTP stuff, while easily likeable, it felt a bit too commercial (as almost anything that JLT does).

Hughes/Thrall -- also felt too pop-ish, if you will. But would be cool if a second album came out just to see the progression hopefully away from pop

HTP II: "Losing my head" and "Hold on" two of the best Glenn songs ever.
