Lightbulb GH & Robin George: Sweet Revenge

Hello.

I found the item on amazon.de under glenn hughes>musik>nr. 41.
I suppose it's a recording of gh from 1991.
Can anyone tell something about it.

Michael

If I'm not mistaken that unreleased album was actually done in 1990. It was originally only available as a bootleg in Japan. Haven't come across any other details for it. George was also part of the 'Warner Bros' sessions which were done the following year, 1991.

Robin George 2005

Here's what Robin George himself had to say about the album back in 2005

There was some talk that the album would appear on UK label www.voiceprint.co.uk but it seemed Glenn was not too happy about that.....

...dolby...

...Glenn was looking for a good direction but wasn't sure which path to follow...I think i read somewhere that the record company wanted him to pursue a kind of Thomas dolby kind of approach...

I'd like this album to be released on his pink cloud label or something..i really like some of the tracks on the record...Don't come crying...Things have got to change... spring to mind

That's the White Soul Rocking Black boot, I suppose? Me too, I haven't listened to this in a very long time, but I do remember that I wasn't too impressed with this either. The unused H/T 2 demo tracks were great though!
This very boot is actually missing the track 'Things Have Gotta Change', and I had to get it even more illegally (Napster)

No Chris.

I actually have 2 different cds of this.

"in the studio 91 (NOMIS)" includes all 11 tracks including Things have gotta change.

Also have "Welcome to the Lost World" which is part of a double cd which again includes all the 11 tracks plus others with dokken, Geoff downes, Manfred Ehlert and Gary Moore.

We can compare notes in March!

Personally, I for one, would like to see the 'unreleased '91 Warner Bros. sessions' get a proper release.......the boot didn't sound that bad!

Hi All,

Amazon UK have 'Sweet Revenge' available for pre-order (release date 14th January)

Worth buying for the great vocal on 'Things Have Gotta Change'

Stay Fun(ky)

I'm very glad it's released. I bought the Highlander record when it came out and played Haunted many, many times.
I love Glenns vocals on that song.

Hello Everyone!
Hope you all had a great Xmas.
I really liked the '91 WB demos.
Songs like, "Real World", "Don't Come Crying","Homeland"
and "The American Way" are pretty good songs.
The copy I have is pretty good & I have a tape of
some of the songs from a friend which is best I heard yet.
I look forward to hearing a clean version of some of the songs
and I notice that some weren't on the copies going around.
Cheers,
galleyfan

Forward into the past!!

Isn't the Robin George CD that is about to be released different from the sessions that have become known as the Warner Brothers Sessions?

I seem to remember an interview with Robin George where he said he wanted to put the unreleased work out although Glenn wasn't enthusiastic about the whole thing?

Just trying to keep my coconuts straight....

No doubt, there's a question mark on this one. The cover art has Glenn's name on it, though, so maybe this material is finally getting an official release.

Still, knowing a bit about what has held it up for so long, frankly I'm quite surprised to see that it might be finally coming out, and I can't help but wonder if it's an official release or...

Hmmm, feels like another "Alchemist" release - someone is definitely cashing in on the back of Glenn's name and reputation.

As Bill said earlier, he wasn't too enthusiastic, when asked about this possibly getting a release, when the rumblings first started a while back, that this might see the light of day.

If you can, DON'T BUY THIS CD. Glenn is not going to see a penny from it, well, not until his lawyers are involved.

Yet again he's being ripped off and no doubt extremely annoyed and sickened at the length some people will go to, to be complete jackasses!

So people, avoid this. If this material is ever released the way it should be, you'll see it from Glenn and only Glenn.

I agree that Glenn's name should not be on the cover.
But as far as I know, Glenn didn't help write any of these
tracks. That is why Robin is putting them out. That is why
certain ones are missing from the sessions which Mel & Glenn
and Pat Thrall wrote. I believe Robin has every right to put them
out but needs to pay Glenn for his vocals & since he was dumb
enough to give him equal billing on cover, then he needs to split
all money made with Glenn. But why should he wait for Glenn to
put the songs out when we know he has no intention to do so.
I know that Robert Plant sang most of tracks in other sessions
as well so Robin should have put some with both of them out
and only called it a Robin George album.
Just my opinion. I look more foreward to the new album.
and perhaps the 2nd Hughes/Thrall.

That's a great response, Roy!
Welcome onboard.

I was checking out Robin's site only yesterday and wondering why the release was not advertised. Thanks for clearing that up.

Yet Robin has been involved with Majestic Rock in the past (Crying Diamonds) and with Zoom Club (Rock of Ageists) before that - same people, aren't they?

Why are they releasing Sweet Revenge without his and Glenn's license when it's totally clear who they are and both Glenn & Robin could actually sue them?

Best,
Christian

First of all.....thanks David, for deleting that post, as I requested.

But I'm still confused about this CD: Sweet Revenge

Is it 10 songs taken from "White Soul Rockin' Black" with the
"snap, crackle and pop" removed by somebody, other than Glenn
or Robin George? Or is it just a "burned version" of that CD?

PS........My copy of WSRB has 16 tracks. And I apoligize, Glenn.
I really didn't know it was a bootleg when I bought it, years ago.

Robin George & Glen Hughes/Sweet Revenge Cd

Artist Shop Newsletter is sent to me at least once a week for new releases they have and I found this:

Coming soon from Infinity http://www.artist-shop.com/infinity

Robin George & Glen Hughes/Sweet Revenge ....CD $18.99
Krescendo - This is a very special release for lovers of melodic hard rock
and fans of the enigma that is Glenn Hughes in particular. Recorded in 1989,
these previously unreleased songs, written and produced by Robin George and
recorded in his studio in Wolverhampton, UK, were the first step on the road
back to the top for Glenn Hughes after his time in Black Sabbath. Mixing
hard rock with the tougher side of blue eyed soul (a sound that he was to
make his own in the '90s), the voice is excellent, the songs are second to
none and the production and playing by Robin George are all that you would
expect from a man with a reputation for excellence in the rock world. That
these songs have remained unreleased for as long as they have is little
short of a crime. Be thankful, then, that they are finally available.

Does anybody know about this and does Glenn get anything from this?

Michael,
posts #21-#27 (above) will probably answer your questions!
Looks like the Euro release was pulled, but it's apparently out in Japan.
Ehem, right?

Sweet Revenge

I have this CD now and I have to say it is good to get it officially. Inside the cover is DOES say LICENCED BY ROBIN GEORGE - how true that is I don't know. I know we are encouraged not to buy stuff like this but the sound is awsome - its either remixed from the bootleg stuff I have or THAT bootleg is so muddy that it makes this "official" release sound so good and refreshed.
I would gladly pay Glenn and Robin their share of royalties that they have missed out on from my copy.
