I hope recent developments will not prevent the album to be released...
Hi Chuck, you're absolutely right : The first trilogy is of course from TRAPEZE, and than PURPLE and after that BCC. Maybe it's now time for HTP 3
In fact, Glenn did 3 albums with JLT: HTP, HTP2 and The Michael Men Project's Made in Moscow. So we have:
Trapeze: Trapeze, Medusa, You Are The Music...;
Deep Purple: Burn, Stormbringer, Come Taste The Band;
Sabbath&Iommi: Seventh Star, DEP Sessions, Fused;
HTP: HTP, HTP 2, Made in Moscow;
BCC: Black Country, 2, Afterglow;
???: ?, ?, ?
I don't think the new project is with Joe.
Obviously for Joe B. his solo career is in the first place.
Why he should start a new project, when he hasn't enough time even for BCC?
But Glenn's last tweets hint a FREE connection...
I don't think it's the new Glenn's band. The new 'Machine Head' tribute album was announced today. It has written 'Highway Star - Glenn Hughes /Steve Vai/ Chad Smith' on the cover (instead of the name of the new band).
Glenn talks about it for months in his tweets.
I am surprised that there aren't discussions about it here.
There were so many speculations three years ago, when BCC started, but now nobody says a word
toadsterama: JLT, Roger Glover and Ritchie are not only 3/5 of the band, but also 3/3 of the songwriters of both bands (DP '89-'91 and Rainbow '80-'83)
About the main topic:
If we assume, that well rated DP albums are all MkIIa & MkIII albums plus Perfect Strangers plus Purpendicular, then the most underrated DP albums are:
- Come Taste the Band (well rated here, of course, but not so much by the ordinary Purple fans);
- The House of Blue Light (Bad Attitude, Unwritten Law, Mitzi Dupree);
- Deep Purple '69 (Blind, Lalena, April).
1. Mk III
2. Mk IV
3. MK II (a, b & c - this is the same band)
4. Satriani era
5. Mk 1
6. Morse era (with Lord)
7. Morse & Airey era
8. Turner era (I love 'Slaves And Masters', but it isn't DP)
SITKOR is my favourite GH solo album, too. "In My Blood", "Higher Places", "Lost in the Zone" and "Written All Over Your Face" are among my favourite songs ever, especially "Written All Over Your Face".
I love HTP, too, this was a step in the right direction, but maybe JLT wasn't the right person for collaboration - he is too pop rock singer.
But BCC - that is the right band for Glenn!
I'm looking forward to new Glenn solo album - i hope it will be like SITKOR, even better.
When was your first and last meeting and conversation with each of Deep Purple (Mk 1-8) members?
Vasil, Veliko Turnovo, Bulgaria
Amazing! I like each new song more than the previous one. In the beginning One Last Soul was my favourite BCC song, after that Song of Yesterday became the favourite one, and now I like The Great Divide most!
What is the one recording you would recommend to someone who had no idea who Glenn Hughes was?
Glenn Hughes - This Time Around: An Anthology 1970-2007 [Box set]
Does anyone know where is Grace and why she doesn't write in this forum anymore?
Thank you, David
Has anybody got the album The God of Voice - Best of Glenn Hughes (1998)? I didn't manage to find any information for it. Which songs does it contain? Can anyone upload album cover or post link to it?
Oh! What a great song is "One Last Soul"!
I love the Fused album, but I can't wait to change my avatar...
