I have all the studio albums & after seeing the dvd with the 'Afterglow' package I hoped this release would be the crowning glory
but it hasn't pushed my buttons though I will reappraise all their albums over time.
Still overall I hear a lack of cohesion between the musicians,sounding forced with a few notable exceptions..
Taking nothing away from all the talent the BCC players have individually
In places 'Afterglow' is a little funkier but the overall supressing of the funk/soul element within a Rock frame work has hindered my enjoyment of the all the BCC albums.
I guess Funk & Soul wasn't going to be within BCC's remit.As a GH fan a personal 'Best of' BCC compilation is as far as I can go with this 'project'.
Granted a Iommi link up is never going to feature Funk & Soul either but Glenn & Tony seem to spark some musical chemistry every time they get together..ditto Pat Thrall.
I would welcome a rebooting of GH's solo career when Glenn worked with more sympathetic Guitarists like of JJ Marsh & Jeff Kolman.
I accept I maybe a minority voice on this BCC overview.
A huge minority voice. These are a GREAT albums and I would not welcome any reboot. Its been said that its forward thinking from here, not backwards. To say there's no musical chemistry with these guys is........... You are missing it man.
Oh well. To each his own.
