I have to start with a confession, I'm a big Glenn Hughes fan. But, and there's a big but, not all his studio albums hit the mark. Highlights over the recent years are both HTP albums, Fused (with Tony Iommi), the last GH Album, Soul Mover, and most definitely, Live in the City of Angels.
Chad Smith from the Chili Peppers is on drums, with the excellent regular guitarist JJ Marsh beside him, and this album highlights Glenn's career to perfection over 2 discs, which make for an outstanding double live CD.
In chronoligical order, we get several tracks from Trapeze, including the classic ballad, Coast to Coast (also featured on Hughes Thrall), Mistreated and 3 Purple tracks from Mark 4, with the highlight being the Hughes/Bolin track Gettin' Tighter. First Step of Love from Hughes Thrall is in there, plus a selection of solo tracks from the last few albums, with Written All Over Your Face the highlight.
Seeing Glenn live is one of the highlights of any year, as the man has one of the best voices in rock music, which is why genuine rock giants such as Chad Smith and Tony Iommi want to work with the man.
This CD highlights his songwriting, great bass playing and most of all that voice. "The Voice of Rock" has never sounded in such great form. Cast aside any doubts you might have, and pick up one of the best double live albums ever recorded. Glenn Hughes rocks.
