For his first solo show in Australia, on the 17th June 2006 at famed Sydney venue The Basement, Hughes brought his unique brand of rock-funk to a new audience. This DVD documents that historic event. Indeed, this is one of Britain’s greatest rock singers in acoustic mode, intimate and live, and his soulful, distinctive voice is in top-notch condition throughout: he pleads, he soars, he rocks and he croons. 


The songs range across his career, taking in material from his solo albums like 1977’s Play Me Out (‘I Found A Woman’), to 2005’s Soul Mover (the rousing title track, ‘Last Mistake’) and his newest release Music For The Divine (a passionate cover of the Moody Blues’ classic ‘Nights In White Satin’, ‘This Is How I Feel’). On top of that, Hughes returns to his legendary Deep Purple days for ‘This Time Around’, ‘You Keep On Moving’, an astonishing rendition of ‘Mistreated’ and a duet with celebrated Aussie Rock front man Jimmy Barnes on ‘Gettin’ Tighter’.

GLENN HUGHES – The Voice of Rock – examines his Own Back Pages on this historic in-concert recording. Over two nights, 6th & 7th June 2009, Hughes enthralled hometown audiences with his unique brand of rock-funk when he packed out the Robin 2 Hotel in Bilston, Wolverhampton. The first night, billed as Glenn Hughes with His Full Band saw him performing music from his glory days with Deep Purple in 1973 (‘Mistreated’ and ‘What’s Goin’ on Here’) on to 2009. Songs including ‘Muscle & Blood’ (from the album Hughes/Thrall), ‘You Got Soul’ (from Music for the Divine), ‘Don’t Let Me Bleed’ (from Soul Mover) and ‘Crave’ (from First Underground Nuclear Kitchen) Hughes has rarely performed in the UK before. 

The second night, billed as ‘You Are the Music’: An Evening of Trapeze saw Hughes performing a full Trapeze set for the first time as a solo performer. Dedicated to the memory of his friend and former Trapeze guitarist Mel Galley, who passed away in July 2008, Hughes delivered emotionally charged versions of songs taken from the albums Medusa (‘Touch My Life’, ‘Black Cloud’, ‘Medusa’) and You Are the Music... We’re Just the Band (‘Way Back to the Bone’, ‘Coast to Coast’, ‘You Are the Music’). The music is often heavy, sometimes graceful and never less than riveting. Hughes’ soulful, distinctive voice is superlative throughout, pleading, powerful and always from the heart. Beautifully presented with superb sound quality, this DVD is a must for the Glenn Hughes aficionado and fans of Classic Rock.

The Divine

 

Glenn’s new solo album Music for the Divine is the latest chapter in the musical evolution of "The Voice of Rock."

Hughes, a native of Cannock, England, absorbed all kinds of influences, including early British hard rock, the Beatles and, most importantly, American soul and R&B. The sleek Motown sound from Detroit and the gritty Stax/Volt sound from Memphis left their mark on him.

The first important band Hughes was a member of that achieved notable success was Trapeze. The band's early '70s albums included Medusa, Trapeze and You Are The Music...We're Just The Band.

In 1973, Hughes joined one of the most popular bands in the world, Deep Purple. The trailblazing hard-rock legends had just weathered the departure of vocalist Ian Gillan and bass guitarist Roger Glover, but guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, keyboardist Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice continued with the addition of Hughes and David Coverdale. Any scepticism was squelched with the 1974 release of Burn which has since been re-released on its 30th anniversary. This stunning album rejuvenated the band and stands tall among Deep Purple classics. 

In the halcyon days, Purple headlined at the famous California Jam in 1974 in front of quarter of a million people. World tours via Purple’s own jet plane, “The Starship” and two more studio albums later, (the Hughes influenced Stormbringer and Come Taste the Band), Deep Purple finally split in 1976.

Now living in Los Angeles, Glenn’s first solo album Play Me Out was released in 1977. He joined former Pat Travers guitarist Pat Thrall to form Hughes/Thrall, which released an acclaimed self-titled album in 1982. Throughout the '80s and '90s, Hughes made countless guest appearances (both credited and un-credited) as a vocalist, bass guitarist or songwriter on other artists' albums.

More commercial recognition came when the KLF dubbed Glenn Hughes “The Voice of Rock”, proudly featuring him on their international best selling hit single America- What Time is Love?
Since 1992, Hughes has toured extensively in Europe, Japan and South America in support of solo albums such as Blues, From Now On..., Burning Japan Live, Feel, Addiction, The Way It Is, Return Of Crystal Karma, Building The Machine Songs In The Key Of Rock and Soul Mover.

One of the most important collaborations in Hughes' career occurred two decades ago when he began working with Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi on the legendary guitarist's first solo album. The result, 1986's vastly underrated Seventh Star, was officially credited as ‘Black Sabbath Featuring Tony Iommi’ to satisfy the record company's marketing desires. (Technically, this makes Hughes a former member of Black Sabbath too.) Hughes and Iommi remained friends and, in 1996, they began writing songs and recording together again. Those  recordings were widely bootlegged, but they were eventually finished and released in 2004 as The 1996 DEP Sessions. 

2005 saw the release of two albums which were greeted with commercial and critical success;  Fused with Tony Iommi, and another solo album Soul Mover.
Soul Mover saw the continuation of the successful creative partnership with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith which began with Glenn’s live DVD Soulfully Live in the City of Angels (2004). Soul Mover  was voted 12th best album of the year by highly influential magazine CLASSIC ROCK.

Glenn’s latest album Music for the Divine is a rich tapestry of the soul, funk and rock  which have always influenced his music. Artistically and spiritually, this album is a true representation of where Glenn Hughes wants to be right now.

The new album was recorded at the Hollywood Hills home of Chad Smith, who played drums and co produced the record with Glenn. Recording in the house (the former residence of actor Cary Grant) had a significant influence on the atmosphere of the music and the direction of the album.

Joining Chad and Glenn on Music for the Divine was long-standing musical partner JJ Marsh on guitar and another RHCP, guitarist John Frusciante. "While writing new music for this record, Chad and I thought it would be great to have John come in, write and play on a couple of the tunes", Glenn says.  

A feature of the album is Glenn Hughes’ acoustic guitar playing and string arrangements, both lesser know facets of his huge talent. Music for the Divine may well be Glenn’s most fully realised album yet; "The title is very important to me", explains Glenn. "When you hear the music, you'll understand the meaning. The title speaks to me, as all the previous one's have. Divine is goodness and is a statement to the fans that really understand my music.  “The album has deep lyrical and spiritual meaning. Once again is where I'm at, at the present time. I do not wish to tread into the past and so this album is a major step forward to me. This is my most honest and artistic album. I am very glad to know that things have continued to grow along spiritual lines. 

“Because of the amazing changes in my life, that have happened since Soul Mover, it has given me a creative output and encouragement to make this new album. When I was growing up in England, my favourite bands & artists were always growing and morphing and continually reinventing themselves and this CD, I believe, has captured all of those elements.”

Make no mistake. The Voice of Rock never left the building.
