"he failed to pay Mel or Glenn any royalties" : yes, but it did not put glenn and mel on the streets anyway...
"despite a large amount (over 1 million) of sales over the years." : he bought the rights only in 93 or 94, so after most of the sells i think.
"He even put out the triple cd Phenomena set with un-authorised rehearsal demos on!" : yes, but those demos are very interesting for those who likes Mel Galley vocals.
"sounds like he got what he deserved" : no, because those banks are the real BIG robbers of the world, that put too many people became homeless.
I also wanted to suggest to hear the samplers of the tracks he recorded for a next "Phenemona" album. Yes, in fact it doesn't really sound like a Phenomena album, but i think it's anyway very good (better than the last 2 Tom Galley's Phenomena's albums) : https://soundcloud.com/phenome…015-demo-samples-mastered
Nearly 2 years ago, i found this bootleg.

I posted some of those songs on youtube :
(i love this version of Jury)
Why they doesns't release this great show, with the one from 1976, on CD or MP3
Hi, Peter Wright is on facebook.
Some part from this 15 min. video has been posted on youtube :

So, does this tom galley's project about trapeze (and the 1981 video) is still in course ?
That's a so great news, because the 1976 Trapeze reunion was great
I think it's the best live ever it exists from Trapeze (until now). You should find it. The sound is quite good. And mel's playing on it is so great ...
Here are the songs :
1 You are the Music
4 Space High
5 Coast to Coast
6 Midnight Flyer
9 Way Back to the Bone
10 Black Cloud
Terry Rowley on keyboards.
I' sure that few people have one or more videos from the 70's. Why they still not share it ? If the earth explode now, we will not die in peace. Please make justice ! Trapeze fans wants videos ! tell it everywhere you can !
"a special edition of Hot Wire appear with some incredible bonus tracks" ? what ? increadible !
Does the song "Breakdown" (witch could be found on "Cannock 27-03-92") was recorded in studio ? When was it wrote ?
great news !
And after that, we can now asking the extended remastered version of Come taste the band.
I highly hope to see this video. There's until now no one video available from the the 70' or 80'. And it's an enormous injustice.
Hot wire & 1976 Trapeze was never released on cd. And it is a shame. The 1976 Trapeze album is great. Justice must be made.
Sometimes we think the order of the songs of an album is not the best.
So i changed the order of the songs of 1976 "trapeze", because to my mind the original is not the best :
Side A :
01 - Starbreaker
02 - Sunny side of the street
03 - It's alright
04 - Soul stealer
05 - I need you
Side 2 :
06 - Monkey
07 - Gimme good love
08 - Chances
09 - The raid
10 - Nothin' for nothing
What do you think of ?
this thread should be locked, because here : http://fanforum.ghpg.net/showthread.php?p=32987#post32987 we can read this :
"According to the Deep Purple Appreciation Society, it looks like the wheels are turning again on the DEEP PURPLE "Stormbringer" remaster. The album, which was originally issued in November 1974, will be re-released as a double-CD set, with CD1 featuring the original album remastered plus the new mixes by Glenn Hughes and Pete Mew. CD2 will contain the original quad mixes in 4.1 and stereo. The set is likely to come out in a special edition, which Simon Robinson from the Deep Purple Appreciation Society has been asked to put together. "I'm going for a CD-size hardback book format, with extras including accurate reproductions of the American in-store advertising card and other goodies," Simon says. No firm release date has been confirmed yet."
