Glad to hear you don't have to be at a show to buy one
because that would really really suck!!!!

I've been a fan since forever & have never gotten to see
the GodFather of Funk live. When I lived in L.A. in 93 I
had the chicken pox when he did the Ray Gillen Tribute show
and some other shows those 10 days. Then I moved to WI
and haved missed him. Almost saw him at a gig in Jersey
back in 07 but I had to deal with a family thing which meant
again the dream would have to wait. One day it will happen.

At least I have vids of some of the shows

I love the direction Glenn is taking & await the next masterpiece!
Cheers,
Galleyfan

just plugged in my Alive Drive bought at The Robin2 for 20 and having a quick play.

the video from Boston is on it along with a few pics and a couple of mp3s.
the video is good quality but a small picture size which i guess is due to the compression to keep the file size down as its a 2gb drive.

it connects to the net and lets you download individual mp3 tracks from The Best Of cd.
just done a couple to see how it works. quick and easy!

the other videos appear to only be viewable and not downloadable?

Im sure David will update us with instructions.

i believe this kind of drive is known as a Sticky Drive!

Currently watching Glenn Hughes, A Whiter Shade of Pale, on the Alive Drive!

Can the video of the Boston show be burned to DVD? I was at that show and would love to watch it on my TV!

I haven't tried yet,but the file is a quicktime file stored on the device, so it should be possible. I don't know whether it's available anywhere else but the shows though. I'm well impressed with it. A good buy indeed

Thanks for the information!

yes. i use a great bit of software called ConvertXtoDVD to stick the .mov files on my digital camera to dvds in TV format. it can choose NTSC or PAL.

however, im not sure the quality would be good if resizing to a full widescreen tv based on how small the video is.

the official launch of the Alive Drive is June 10th.

From July 1st you should be able to stream the Robin2 concerts.

David tells me that they will be available on this website real soon. he and Shirean are over here for a week so it wont be this week!

I got one from the Robin2 gig, and had a quick look when I got home.
Initial thoughts are good, the Boston gig looked great, but as someone else mentioned the alive drive player seems to be a fixed small size.
As expected when I opened it in quick time and expanded the screen size the quality diminished a bit. Great idea, hope it grows.
Can't wait to see the Bilston gig(s).
Initerested in getting it down on DVD to watch on my proper set up

Just a quick note/follow-up...more soon...but the 'Alive Drive' will be available for purchase & shipment worldwide right here from the web site in the next week or so...keep you eyes peeled

It's a 2GB USB drive...so not everything will be available directly or indirectly (via download)...only streamed over the internet...some video is streamed and some not....the downloadable video will be highly compressed due to the size constraints, so the quality isn't suitable for viewing on anything other than from the video player provided within the drive. Yes, you can burn the downloads, but again, for video; the quality wouldn't warrant it. Having said that, a transfer to your existing iPod Touch/iPhone or alternative media player is possible, once you have the download on your drive. So it does offer quite a bit of flexibility

Please remember, the goal here going forward; is to offer as many recent live shows as possible and quickly, plus of course, exclusive content (not available elsewhere)...vs...only ever releasing a DVD or live CD every 4 or 5 years!

But keep the feedback coming

More soon...

For 20, what's on the drive right now is a bargain in my view.
As David points out this keeps fans much closer with what Glenn's doing as opposed to waiting for a formal DVD release and the like.

Watched some of the show from March from the drive, and that's exactly the type of thing I'd like to see.

So it's a big from me.

Good work guys

From someone has trawled through much video converting software (good and bad) to condense Glenn's footage from various sources, these two suggestions are a welcome addition to my armoury so thank you for posting them. Btw that's where my hair went. You heard it here first folks

Hi,

I could not go to the last week-end's concert due to my job but I will buy the alive drive, I think it is great! Is there any kind of pre order? I do not want to miss it!

Cheers.

No Pere, but not too worry; you won't miss out, it'll be way obvious once it's available from here

Live gig Audio?

Great!
Happy to see the drive arrive.

Just one question... as I'm not sure about the wording of the announcement.

When you say "Video/Audio IN PACKAGE" does that mean there are separate audio files of the US (Boston) gigs? In other words, can the audio files be put on my iPod without the video?

Thanks!

Michael Edmonds

No, the audio "in package" refers to the various tracks available in the Music Player only (which you can download for playback on an iPod) and the video is separate to that...so the Boston gig and soon to be available Wolverhampton gigs, will be video only. Although...if your iPod plays video, you can transfer it, as it's in QuickTime format, which of course is Apple iPod compatible.
