I have been fortunate enough to follow Glenn’s music in its many styles and stages. One thing that is always true abou Glenn is his remarkable rane as a singer and his feel for the vibe of the music. This album is a true example of that range and vibe. The energy and flow of the album along with the song selection (and performance)makes it my pick for album of the year. No matter if the boy can sing the blues or sing Stevie Wonder remakes no singer takes you into the void the way Glenn does. Despite having 38 albums that feature Glenn’s vocals, this along with Feel always top my play list.
The Definitive Album (Live Or Otherwise) from the Former Deep Purple and Hughes/Thrall Band Guitarist and Songwriter. Much of the Material Here Comes from the Purple Canon as Well as Solo Material. These Shows Made an Indelible Mark on his Fans and Are Some of the Most Energetic Live Recordings Ever.

This is a sort of best-of live featuring Deep Purple tracks, solo stuff, and one song from Hughes/Thrall. Backed by a hard rock band of Northern European session men, here Hughes is in fine form, playing songs you know with conviction. He doesn’t quite out-yowl Ian Gillan and the Robert Plant wannabe photo on the back cover is a bit much, but this is GREAT live rock and roll.
If you are a Glenn Hughes or a Deep Purple fan of the Coverdale/Hughes era you should get this CD. Although I thought Deep Purple took a step back when Ian Gillian and Roger Glover left Deep Purple and David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes joined the band they made some great songs. This CD in my opinion captures Glenn Hughes at his best singing some of the best Deep Purple and his own songs live in concert. His voice is in top notch form and the sound is great for a live recording. If the rock and roll Gelnn Hughes is what you like here it is in all it’s glory. At times I can give or take some of his solo stuff but this is kick [...] all the way. Listen to it loud and enjoy.
From the opening track I was hooked! Unbelievable. This CD has taken up residence in my car player.Much to my kids’ disgust! The ex purple tracks “Burn”, “Stormbringer”, “Lady Double Dealer”, “Gettin’ Tighter” make me wonder WHO was the voice of DP. But when you mix in the likes of “Into the Void” and “Coast to Coast”. You have one unbelievable album. Recorded over two nights in 1994, makes you wonder if their are any more tracks in the archive somewhere?
(Just a whisper: Soulfully Live in the City of Angels is better!)
As a fan of Deep Purple in its many incarnations, I find Glenn Hughes to be one of Purple’s most interesting voices. This album allows Glenn to rock and not worry about playing bass. Backed with two guitars, these songs really rock. (Just thing what Purple might have sounded like with two guitars.) This is a great live album that needs to be cranked up.
