  • No, Gone was never issued on the live disc, perhaps you're referring to a bootleg of the show? The full album track listing is the same as the original, issued back in 2000.

    My bad, David, you're correct. I don't know why I thought No Stranger to Love was in it...

    On a separate note, I do prefer Japanese releases to these deluxe reissues. Japanese releases had a proper studio bonus track. I'm no fan of throwing live bonus tracks onto the album just to call it a "deluxe remaster". Most artists do it, and, to me, it's unfortunate. I'd much rather get all the studio outtakes, B-sides, etc, than get another live version of Burn or something. Just my 2 cents.

  • 'Live at The London Astoria' is a good audience recording.I enjoyed 'Gone' and a keyboardless 'Might Just Take Your Life' musically treading in AC/DC territory.

    Good to reaquaint myself with he quality of the 'The Way It Is'. Nice soulful elements therein amongst the riffage.

  • Why is "Burning Japan Live" (we all know it) not on Cherry Red's reissue/remaster list??? :confused:

    ...because they only have these titles from the back catalogue.

    'Play Me Out' (1977), 'Feel' (1995), 'Addiction' (1996), 'The Way It Is' (1999), 'The Return To Crystal Karma' (2000), 'Building The Machine' (2001) and 'Songs In The Key Of Rock' (2003).

  • Up next for release are Building The Machine and Songs In The Key Of Rock with quite a few bonus tracks :thumbup:

    "Building The Machine" is set for release on November 17th, 2017.

  • 'Songs In The Key Of Rock' with 'Freak Flag Flyin' is in sync as Glenn was promoting the album. A rare outing for 'In My Blood' on 'Freak Flag'. IMHO F.Flag is on a par and arguably better in places than 'Soulfully Live' and it is a great recording too!

    JJ Marsh was playing out of his skin on 'Freak Flag'.
    I still miss JJ,not being up there onstage with Glenn.

  • These remastered are a bit of a mixed bag.

    The Cherry Red label is not in the same re-issue category as let's say Rock Candy Records. A few years ago I bought some Pat Travers re-issues from Cherry Red which were disappointing.

    Although it is great to see Glenn Hughes solo records in US record stores, Cherry Red could have done a better job with the bonus discs.

    The Astoria concert as extra disc on The Way it is , sounds like an audience bootleg and probably is. And where is the Japanese bonus track 'the world is broken' on Return of Crystal Karma?

    The Feel and Addiction reissues were a tad better, But I don't understand why the bonus live concerts are not from the same album tour :confused:
