    Glenn Hughes is ubiquitous, very much making up for lost time. Despite the detractors, Hughes remains the only Deep Purple member keeping the flag flying. While others continue to languish, Hughes has consistently recorded new material and continues to expand the utilization of technology to keep in touch with fans.

    Black Country Communion is as strong as anything Hughes has yet accomplished, with the second album a leap ahead of the first, the live DVD amazing, and we are already talking about a third album.

    If I do say so myself….I am in complete agreement with ‘Strat “T” Kat’. Nothing I haven’t stated elsewhere though. A new album from the ‘Mother Ship’ sure would be a welcome addition though. Come on DP. Show BCC what it’s really about.

    In the MKIII days Glenn was my favorite Purp cast member partly because I was a fan of Trapeze, (showin’ my age). Then came MKIV and the change in his on stage personality really turned me off, I tried to follow his post Purple career but didn’t really care for his music so I jumped off the wagon. Since then as “T” stated he has kept the flag flying, I personally enjoyed following him on the road via his video updates. Now with BCC, I like the music, its good ROCK music nothing great IMHO, but I do like and own both LP’s.

    So what I am saying with all this is I really admire GH and his “comeback” from everything and appreciate all he has given us musically, especially Trapeze and MKIII for myself. Good luck to BCC on their 3rd release and kudos to Glenn Hughes the man for never giving up or giving in. Keep “the flag flying”. (per#1)

    I dont understand why you like BCC but felt nothing for whwt Glenn did on his solo albums. They are not far apart in style IMO.

    Cheers, Mark

    I probably didn’t hear enough of the solo material. After the first two I just lost interest, also it wasn’t heavy enough and I was way into Rainbow and Whitesnake. 🙂

    While the DVD/BR is a well cleaned up mess, it does not begin to compare to DP Live at Montreux 2011, which is a killer performance from beginning to end, of a band with much more going on for every second. While they’re both good, BCC still doesn’t compare. This should be no surprise, but with the way things have been going since the last Montreux DVD, I did not expect it to keep me half as interested, even with the orchestra factor. Compare these DVD’s and Purp by far win the prize! I’m really only mentioning it because I reviewed them the same week, and since the week or release I have watched Montreux several times thru with no hesitation. BCC I haven’t been able to get thru a third viewing of without skipping around or simply throwing something else in. It borders on amateur film making, but an on par performance and a magical sound are it’s only saving props. However, put it in on it’s own with nothing to compare it to, and the smoke and mirrors do work a lot better. I know they don’t prefess to be perfect, but JB showing up with two different guitars and jackets within the same track, with no way to change them within it is likely one of the phoniest things I have ever seen. That right there bugged me, big time.(someone said to me, what if they meant to do that, or simply didn’t notice and didn’t think you would? LOL -had to bust on that)

    But they are far better in this arena, Priest… what’s so hard to figure out about that. It’s simple, people want Glenn to sound 100% by way of a band, regardless of the songwriting ideas. Since he writes 90% of the material, if you didn’t already know, it’s just the other fine players topping it all off. Makes for much better records than Glenn has ever been able to pull off on his own. I see nothing worng with that opinion, although I was enjoying his chops on his solo albums, I wasn’t enjoying the songs, they’re missing what the others have added to them, so to speak, cause some of them might as well be from one of Glenn’s last four solo albums. It’s about nailing chemistry as it enters the picture, and applying it with a ‘full circle’ result. What is it with you, Priest, all fine musicians and two very good albums, whats your problem with them? I’m sure I can save you a few words… I don’t expect any kind of proper answer to that, it was written in English. 🙂

    Yeah, keep on trying. : )

    I dont have any problem with the BCC records, not at all.

    I just think it’s a big shame Glenn made many classic songs since 1993 and lots of people just dont(want to)know!!!

    That body of work should not be forgotten so quickly just because this BCC thing.
    I m afraid mainly due to Zepp fans that cling on to the name of Bonham(…)BCC gets so much enthusiasm.

    Well, I hope Glenn’s backcatalogue does find an extra outlet this way.
