Icon47 Live in Australia DVD/CD

WOW - what can I say....this is the GLENN HUGHES disc (DVD) we've all been waiting on - the performances are just jaw dropping and the 2+ hour bonus material is just as captivating.

The sound is just awesome - it's so good to have such a close-up performance as raw and "in the flesh" wafting through in 5.1 Surround

Would of loved a bit more of the Rome gig on there, but I'm a bit biased on that one, since Shirean and I were in attendance on the night.

The in-studio M4TD song commentaries were very insightful and it was an education to hear the different layers of each track And Chad is right, GLENN's bits on Nights In White Satin, are just jaw dropping (did I say that again)!

Well worth the wait - a great job all round - looking forward to the next one

Totally agree.I got my copy today and I too think the quality is fantastic.I have just bought a new 42"1080p lcd tv with 1000 watt surround sound Dolby Pro logic kit The only reason I mention this is because the sound quality is the best I have ever heard on a live musid cd/dvd.You can hear everything including the voices of the crowd during the quieter moments.

Glenn is on great form with what I think is the best version of Mistreated I have had the pleasure to experience.

I liked the bit where,when asked to do Burn he said"what in an acoustic set!!!!!!!!! and then proceded to tell the sound man he was going to get his bass turned up louder

Go and buy it

It just arrived and all I can say is WAOW ! The 5.1 DTS sound is a killer. Top quality image and Glenn is amazing (well that's not a breaking news...).
One advice : BUY IT ASAP !!!!
Got to leave you know as I hear the first notes of "Nights in white satin"...

Been watching it for the last two days... mind you, not for 48 hours, I gotta sleep a little in between, but a lot.
Allow me to quote good old Stevie Wonder: I love ev'rything about (it)!!!
Oh, and it must have been hot in Rome!
Only the two Swedes don't seem to care too much about the heat, and the camera men definitely liked Chad best! If there ever is a live action Muppets Show film, Chad should be in it playing the part of Animal! Well he doesn't have to play the part too much then, has he!?

Also watch out for Pascal wearing a Thin Lizzy T-Shirt...

Great release!!! Get it!!!

Cheers,
Christian

btw. I only found two typographical mistakes this time around!

Yes, Chris,
if only our boy would legally change his name to:

then this problem could be easily solved.

Pagey

Got the 'live in Australia' dvd, and it''s a real treat.

Glenn & Chad are on it, meeting with Jimmy Page out in some sunny city street.

Can somebody enlighten me where this was???

It looked like a chance meeting, Pagey relaxed, wearing a hat and seemingly surprised to bump into Glenn & Chad. Unfortunately no audio

That was in London last Summer. Coincidentally, both GLENN and Chad will be attending the Classic Rock Awards event next week in London, where Page will also be in attendance, receiving a lifetime achievement award.

Or he might as well cancel his appearance because he can't carry the award with a broken finger...

I've been deaf...

Got the Live at the Basement dvd with the bonus disc last week. Isn't it great? The bonus features alone make it worthwhile. What a fantastic Gettin' Tighter (which made me appreciate how good Chad Smith is).

The making of MFTD was a real eye opener. As I watched it gave me a whole new appreciation for the songs. When I bought MFTD I played it once or twice and filed it, as nothing really grabbed me, and I was deaf to its charms. Since watching the dvd I've been playing it non stop. What great songs, what great playing. I completely missed how good some of the guitar solos are on the first couple of plays. I still find the structure of some of the songs a little odd though, with those end jams that don't always seem to entirely fit with the rest of the song.

I've found before that sometimes you just have to wait for the right time to listen to and fully appreciate an album. MFTD's time is now for me.

Hi All,

Bonus DVD is fantastic - was all of the show in Rome taped?

I think this is the best filmed document of GH live since comeback.

Got mine from HMV (London) in Import section (bargain at £16) and is PAL All Region version.

Have a fun(ky) Christmas

The Rome show is great indeed, only the directing is a little strange - e.g. when Kjell plays the solo on the clavinet (Getting Tighter) the cameras are both on Chad and JJ, and during JJ's extensive guitar solo the cameras are on Chad and Glenn and so on... - looks like it was filmed with only two or three handhelds and "directed" in a rush.

But I guess this footage was originally only shot for use in the documentary (snippets) or in a Promo video clip. That's why it is clearly listed as "Bonus" on the DVD.

Don't get me wrong - I love the Rome footage, but I can also totally understand the comment (somewhere above) that a full electric live show should now be on top of the Glenn DVD release schedule, properly filmed and properly directed.

Now axe me
Cheers,
Christian

Bought this DVD for my brother for Christmas and we watched it together recently. It is a really good performance indeed. On first listen Nights in White Satin, Frail and The Divine stood out for me, working even better than expected in this setting and with truckloads of emotion. No comments on bonus material, since this package contained only the show + the 3 videos. Will buy the complete one soon enough, couldn't find it in time for Santa. Anyways, fantastic performance, go get this and buy another one for your friend, grandma, neighbour...

i got the dvd yesterday.... but not the bonus dvd...
guess there are 2 versions of the dvd out there? bommer

now i have to buy it again WITH BONUS DVD

(by the way , the sound sometimes is not to good (2.0 stereo); it sounds like the mike cant handle glenns loud singing, getting tighter with Barnes has the same problem, i hope it is just on my edition of the dvd)

overall
Wow... what a performance.. glenn and jj are on top of there game and the violinest closest to Glenns looks like he has a constant orgasme :-))

cheers

Live in Australia - Classic Rock Review

Classic Rock have published the following review of the Live in Australia DVD in the March edition:

"Glenn Hughes really needs to sort out his packaging. That's not a comment on his ball-hugging satin bell-bottoms, but rather a criticism of the way his product is presented to tempt buyers. The cover of Hughes's recent twin-CD anthology was dull in the extreme, and on the front of this DVD he resembles a lightly boiled Chuckle Brother.

It's a shame because in all other respects this is first rate. Hughes's first solo show in Australia tool place at Sydney's intimate Basement venue in June 2006, and his performance is superb. There are amazing reworkings of Deep Purple's Mistreated and You Keep on Moving, and Hughes is joined on stage by Jimmy Barnes for a rollicking run through Gettin' Tighter. Referring to Hughes's still-golden pipes, Barnes asks: "How are you supposed to ****ing sing after that?" He's got a point." 7/10

Another good review, but I must agree about the front cover. It looks like a really bad photocopy from the front of a cheap bootleg. The simple cover of the CD version is much better.

Ian

Thank you in advance.

Cheers

There's just the one (black cover) release on CD - the only difference is the font used on the original release cover plus the text itself vs. the one that is now widely available. See here for the original artwork...notice the font & text used is different.
