I'm currently trying to decide what to get next, I have Feel, Soul Mover, M4TD and FUNK but I'm not sure which one I want to get now.
I'm thinking about getting Songs in the Key of Rock. Any other suggestions?
Covering his long career I'd start with Come taste The Band, Play Me Out is an essential to understand Glenn's roots, and I loved Feel and First Underground Nuclear Kitchen which in my opinion both show the real Glenn and what he actually loves to do.
However Hughes-Thrall is a must!
all the best to everyone
For me are the Deep Purple Trilogy: Burn, Stormbringer and Come taste the band are essential albums. In that period they where the best selling band in the world!
The Hughes-Thrall album and Black Sabbath's Seventh Star are also classic stuff.
His solo albums are very divers. For instance: From Now On is great, also The Way It Is (underrated) and Songs In The Key of Rock (very basic and with a live feel).
The Iommi Dep sessions is great and also HTP2 (two great singers for the price of one, in my opinion).
If I had to pick one it would have to be "You Are The Music". It is one of the best albums by anybody ever. There isn't a bad song on it and you get the full range of Glenn's vocals - soul, rock, funk. You also get fabulous guitar playing by the late great Mel Galley. There was a period in the 70s when I played this album every day for months. Time, other commitments and too much else to listen to prevent that kind of thing happening now.
After that, Come Taste The Band, Stormbringer, Play Me Out, Hughes/Thrall and From Now On.
After that, Phenomena, John Norum's Face The Truth, Return Of Cystal Karma.
After that Liesegang's No Strings Attached, Hughes Turner Project, Soulfully Live in the City of Angels.
Just a few thoughts.
CTTB, Addiction, Blues, Hughes/Thrall, Dep Sessions, Addiction, MFTD, Addiction ... ... and I'm really liking what I've heard from BCC
By the way Wolfy, I have FINALLY been able to buy my new treasured possession - a brand new Addiction shirt!
Pleased? Me? Understatement!
Tough to narrow down, but I'd say Soul Mover and SITKOR would be my toppers. FFF is awesome as well as all Trapeze albums and Burn. But when you are talking solo work, gotta be the two above and maybe FUNK.
have to agree with you Frank, probably his most 'complete' solo albums. Soul Mover and SITKOR are top notch.
Freak Flag Flyin' - of course! How could I overlook that one?
Thank you Frank for bringing me to my senses again ...

Can't argue with that!

...or that. It's still on my MP3 player to this day....
However, it's all bostin', ay it? (a bit of black country speak there )
