Glow in the dark

black country communion glow in the dark vinyl reissues

Three Black Country Communion albums will be reissued on a glow in the dark vinyl. The first and second albums are due on September 24, and BCCIV on October 22. They will be available separately or as a bundle. Each album will be a 2LP. There is no word on bonus tracks, so it’s probably safe to presume that the only new thing is the said glow in the dark gimmick.

Thanks to BraveWords for the info.

    Those four album are good enough to get Glenn to be inducted again into the R&R hall of fame. Don’t take my word for it. I just urge you to look listen to all four albums with an open ears.

    They are all good albums and I really like the first one the best, but not very many people this side of the world know who Glenn is, let alone BCC, so the HOF is probably not going to happen. I saw them here in So. California on their (Only?) US Tour just before the 2nd album came out when they did a warm up tour before heading to Europe. The small/medium sized venue was only about 25% full. The venue had a running ad in the local free paper with upcoming shows but there was not much in the way of other adverts or publicity for it. In fact I never even heard a Radio spot for it until the days before the show and the DJ’s did not hype it much and airplay was almost non-existent. But the local paper (OC Register) had a nice write up about it afterwards. The best thing I heard all night (other than the band) was when I was buying an autographed CD of the 2nd album and someone behind me was complaining that they “only saw the last 3 songs. Who starts a concert on time?” I turned around and said “Joe Bonamassa, that’s who!” And he has every time that I have seen him.

    Yup, that’s his “I’m the Gibson-wielding accountant at this year’s corporate Christmas event, none of you thought I could play like this!”-charm.

    That said, Glenn isn’t generally late either.

    Hi Guy
    Sorry if I got one or two wind up by my comments about Glenn been inducted in R@R Hall of fame again for BCC but then ask yourself if it possible or not having seen Rod Evan been inducted for DP MK1 first three albums.
    Anyway the main point here is the all four BCC albums are great so enjoy them.
    On the subject of R@R Hall of fame I think we will soon see RJD and Blackmore inducted for Rainbow first three album and Mr Coverdale for Whitesnake.
    Sorry if I made anyone grind their theeth.

    By the time Glenn would become eligible for introduction to the RRHF on the basis of his BCC work, it will likely be a posthumous event! ; – )

    OTOH, ever since he got clean, Glenn has been holding up nicely. Let’s wait and see then.

    PS: Not that I care. As long as no-brainers such as BÖC, the J. Geils Band and Grand Funk Railroad are missing in the RRHF, I’m not unduly worried about Glenn.

    @1: The first album iseasily the best in terms of quality songs, but the production is poor. After that album the production improved but the songs were increasingly weaker with each release. The trouble was that Glenn dominated the band, writing more and more material, desperately trying to get Bonamassa to give up his solo career in favour of BCC, which was never going to happen. BCC has always been a fun side project for Joe, but Glenn took it all too seriously.

    BCC didn’t work on stage IMHO. Glenn doesn’t know how to perform other than in California Jam grand gestures mode, love or hate him for it, but that is what you get with him. Bonamassa is an introvert on stage to the point of being awkward, he would marvel at Glenn’s rock star gyrations and come-ons from the side, but a rock guitarist co-front man he was not. He thought donning a baseball cap would give him rock star credibility, someone should have told him that BCC weren’t Molly Hatchet.

    On stage together, Doug Aldrich and Glenn are a much better fit. Really in the Blackmore/Hughes and Bolin/Hughes league (those two had a real chemistry on stage – and chemicals off AND on stage!).

    Glenn and Andrew Watt in California Breed didn’t work out either. Glenn needs someone who can hold his ground and is not overshadowed by him.
