Icon34 Classic Rock - Dec08 - GH Special!

Great feature on Glenn in the Buyer's Guide section.

Unfortunately due to his large solo output only M4TD gets a mention - but Coffee and Vanilla is so good its listed twice

I would have put Addiction and Soul Mover in there myself - but what could i have dropped Nothing!

There's another glaring error saying Tommy Bolin was on Stormbringer but overall an excellent advert and promo for Glenn.

Thanks for posting the article Paul Hopefully they'll catch up with the rest of the world soon. Feels like it's been sitting under someone's desk for a while, obviously not the Editor's though But coverage is coverage, and a 2 page spread is always a good thing

You can also now find the feature on their web site:

Nice to see some good detailed coverage, however, surely this article should have focused on Glenn`s solo material.

Dont get me wrong Burn, Stormbringer and Come Taste the Band are classic Purple albums which Glenn contributed to and wrote some great material but i dont think of them as Glenn Hughes albums.

Sad that great albums such as Addiction, Soulmover, Building the Machine and Funk are not included. As it makes it appear that The majority of Glenns work is in the past rather than in the present.

GOOOOOOOOD THEY MENTIONED ALL MY FAV ALBUMS EXCEPT ADDICTION AND MEDUSA

AND THAT IS FOR A REASON

BECAUSE ADDICTION AND FROM NOW ON AND SOUL MOVER ARE VERY FAMOUS AND THEY DON'T NEED ANY REVIEWS OR MENTIONS

THEREFORE

THEY DISSCUS THE MORE OBSCURED AND FORGOTTEN ALBUMS BUT THEY TOTALLY FORGOT BLUES ALBUM ...IT WORTHS A DISCOVER

AND WHY AVOID SOULFUL CHRISTMASS I SEE THAT ITS A DIFFERENT KIND OF ALBUM THAT WONT BE COMPARED WITH THE OTHERS!

BUT WHAT A GOOD SECTION

THANKS PAL

GOOD WORK

Hmmm one of us would have proof read it for them! My comments back would be.... Have you thought of making this an eight page pull out? Good coverage though. Maybe a couple of reminders as to Glenn's solo output wouldn't go amiss for their Letters page.

It seems Classic Rock is well informed about Glenn back catalogue since they're putting A Soulful Christmas in their listings...I think they had too since there isn't a Glenn Hughes product which they can place under the avoid section

Icon49 Wolfy Smith ~ Ace Reporter

I never thought that I would read a review of Glenn's work
where somebody else complained about the sunflowers in the
black and white photograph, on the cover of the Christmas album.
Of course it's about the music, but there really has to be
more thought given to the CD cover artwork.

"Music for the Divine" as a CD title, tells you nothing.
Same thing with "First Underground Nuclear Kitchen."
No clue as to the ballads, rock or jazz sounds within.
This was also true with the bland HTP cover. (What's HTP?)
And when, oh when, will a photograph appear on an album cover
of a smiling Glenn Hughes ?

But other than not telling the "Who's Glenn Hughes?" people about this web site,
this was a pretty good 2-page introduction to our boy's discography.
The article even mentioned that good 'ole Viking longboat, from "What Time is Love."
And.............they spelled Glenn's name right.
Not too shabby none.


PS...........Wolfy, so how much back salary do we owe you,
for being the monthly "Classic Rock" reporter?

Of the covers you mentioned, Grace, I really do like the HTP cover. Actually, more the second one with the metallic sheen to it. Maybe they could have had the metallic HTP/circle logo smaller and in the center of the cover, with the photo of Glenn and JLT in the background? Kinda like how the live album has the HTP logo smaller and superimposed over the live photos.

So just out of curiosity, what do you think is Glenn's best album cover? And why?

I'd have to go with Soul Mover or The Way It Is. I think Soul Mover has the better graphic art than the other albums. I think The Way It Is is stylish, and shows Glenn looking great with his short 'do' and tall shoes. By the way, Grace, if memory serves there is a great smiling photo of Glenn in the booklet too...

Cheers...Todd

OK....here's where I get into trouble.
I'm not too thrilled with any of GH's album covers.

Although the photgraphs of Glenn on "Addiction,"
and the four-track "Talk About It" fit the mood of the music.
And I guess that I have to include "Feel" and "BJL" only because
there's a photograph of our boy, none of them smiling, on the cover.

LUCKY FOR ME.........I've shown Glenn the "slight alteration"
that I made to my Christmas CD album cover (paper-doll-type
Santa suit, Christmas tree, a line-up of reindeer, etc.)
AND GLENN........THANK GOD........LAUGHED!

But ask me what I've really hated......
When I first got "The Way It Is" I innocently removed the cellophane wrapping,
and opened up the plastc jewel case. The actual CD had a graphic on it - a photo
of Glenn from his chin to his collarbone.

Yep, right in the middle of his throat was the center hole for the CD player.
It looked like a gunshot wound to Glenn's throat.
That almost made me sick.
Enough said.

Well you win some, lose some I guess. The Christmas CD cover you don't care for actually features Glenn smiling on it

And the back cover photo on 'Burning Japan Live' has Glenn smiling on it.

I have a great photo of Glenn smiling in San Antonio at one of the Tommy Bolin tribute shows in 1999. The band tore into "Gettin' Tighter", and Glenn flubbed the lyrics. He stopped the band, spent a bewildered minute trying to remember his lines, and then restarted the song. Everyone had a good laugh over that; Glenn probably laughed more than anyone. Always nice to have a sense of humor about yourself.

Wanna talk about sourpuss faces? Check out some of the photos by heavier metal bands. They either look like they want to beat you up, or like they were just given terrible news.

Cheers...Todd

Hmm..don't see From Now On, Face The Truth, The Way It Is, SITKOR, Seventh Star, Addiction- Im not thrilled with the focus of this article and would recomend these before most of what's listed here. I think this kind of like a Beatles album discussion- it's a can't win battle no matter what you put.

'Face the Truth' and 'Seventh Star' probably aren't included because those are not Glenn Hughes albums, per se. There could be an argument for HTP, though.

I think 'The Way It Is' and 'From Now On' should be in there. The former contained a great variety of pop and rock sounds, and the latter was an album I always considered Glenn's real return to the music scene. 'Blues' was an enjoyable album, but it was Shrapnel Records head Mike Varney's idea, not Glenn's. (I first mistakenly typed Jim Varney, then the visual of 'Ernest' popped in my head - I knew that didn't sound right! )

If any of the albums in the CR article didn't belong, I would say it's 'Soulful Christmas'. It's an album of Christmas covers, and not indicative of Glenn's solo output.

Cheers....Todd

If Glenn sings it; it's OK by me.
So since I have no favorite Glenn Hughes album,
I concentrate on complaining about the CD cover art work

Yes, Todd, search is our friend, but there's so much friend that we have to search for - forever.
But luckily, my memory hasn't gone to "Senior Moment Heaven" and I remember that you
took some GH photographs that I thought were finagled with color, along the lines of the work
of Peter Max, and I posted that I thought that they were spectacular, and worthy of a GH CD cover.
(There was also praise for somebody from Germany, who took photos of Glenn from backstage,
and we saw Glenn's silhouette, and what he sees, while he's standing on stage.)
Fan photographs like these would make a spectacular CD cover, and liner note illustrations!

How true!
Is this perhaps a reference to "The Brothers Grimm?"
OOPS, I mean the lovely Hughes & Iommi publicity shots for "Fused."
Yep, these two guys looked really mean and evil!!!!
By the way, Keith Thompson later on, took a great shot of them when Tony
visited backstage after a GH show in England. Glenn was wearing pink glasses;
Tony was wearing blue. And they were both..........smiling!

OT, but I saw the Now Playing selection under the signature, and have to give kudos to David - fellow Terry Reid fan!

I waited until the 'off season' (Summer) & got it for $6.99 - mind you,that was back in 2003

Very difficult to pick up a legite copy for a sensible price now, I would imagine
