Thanks for this David...
"the label has gone back to the quarter inch tapes to redo this from scratch."
Well, that's enough to make my buy this CD for a 3rd time. Pretty cool....I'd like to hear the official word from Glenn.
Done and done!
"mostly overdriven Hammond organ" is one of my favorite phrases in the world!
Should be good....
Some good news for those in the USA...
...I can now confirm, there wiil be an NTSC edition of the DVD, which will be available for sale in early February, both at retail and right here from the web site
Will let you know when things are online!
Thanks for helping to make this happen David. As soon as the NTSC version is made available I'll be purchasing it immediately then circling my mailbox!
Can you please make a NTSC version of this DVD for me?
I've been marginally good....
This release date CANNOT get here soon enough!
I have the new re-ish & I think it sounds a lot better. I actually a/b'd them in the car. Not only is the overall volume louder, but the individual instruments are more distinct & crisper. Reminds my of the way it sounded when I initially got it on vinyl all those years ago....
Say what you will about Dave Holland, but he was a great drummer & the drums in particular sound fantastic on this version.
A MUCH better job than the farcical "remaster" that Lemon did on YATM awhile back.
Thanks for the kind words about the interview as well!
I was recently given the opportunity to interview MY IDOL Glenn Hughes for the website of a record store I work with. I spoke with our illustrious board host David prior to this, & he gave me permission to post it here. The premise of the interview was his upcoming appearance at the Rock & Roll Fantasy Camp in Atlanta, but as you'll see, it quickly devolved into nerdy bass specific questions & sloppy hero worship.
Do you recall that SNL skit where Chris Farley interviews Paul McCartney?
("Remember when you were in the Beatles? That was awesome.")
That's what I felt like.
The first link is to the Criminal.com homepage w/the intro & such. You can link to the entire article from there, or directly from the second link.
Of course he was so gracious & so very friendly, just as he has been every time I've ever had the chance to meet him. I just though I'd share this with my fellow Glenn Hughes fans.
Now if you'll excuse me I have to crank up some Deep Purple now.
Just size large? I need an XL!
I'm gonna buy me one of those basses!
"Deep End" photo feature in the 7/07 (and sadly, last) issue of Bass Guitar magazine. Pic is from the Wembly 3/17/76 Deep Purple show.
Great shot, but the text alludes to the sad last days of Deep Purple & doesn't really come across that flattering.
But any press for the man is fine by me!
The site looks fantastic! Can't wait for that remaster...
Yeah, I tried "Glenn" already! Dunno if she'll go for it....
Looking for a "Plan B".
Can anybody confirm that William is The Funkmeisters real middle name?
Dumb question I know, but does anyone know Glenn's middle name?
(The wife wants me to come up with baby names...)
Thanks in advance!
Thanks so much to Mel & all involved for taking the great amount of time & energy required to put this together for all of us. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed.
Forgive me the stupid question, but Mel references trouble with his "arms" several times. I'm fully aware of the Whitesnake/Sykes injury & of course the "claw" - I saw Trapeze in 94. But what's up with his other arm - was there an injury I wasn't aware of?
Thanks again to everybody involved!!!
