Burn Me Up Slowly

A promo video from Roger Glover’s 2002 Snapshot has surfaced on YouTube. Very laid back.

Thanks to dhmhtrhsm for uploading the video.

    This is one of the best songs of this good record. Very interesting wath RG playing a very diferent kind of stuffs. But for me, the best song is when it comes to you, a good mix of rock and country. Good album. RG should record more often!

    Do I love that record, my oh my. I remember that back when it was released my then girlfriend, now wife, didn’t like Deep Purple as our most constant soundtrack. She took a long time to learn that the man behind “Snapshot”, which she loved listening to with me, was a Deep Purple member. Her shock was even bigger when she learned “Elements” was also composed by a Deep Purple member.

    Simple, but nice video. Missed the backing musicians – especially the backing singer for the chorus, Gillian Glover. dhmhtrhsm, is there something else in your vault? “Queen of England”, to upload this Friday, for example?

    Great album. And it’s tunes like this that should be on the radio. But let’s not talk about MTV and such….

    Bravo, Roger….

    I don’t recall it. Was it really made back in 2002? Has it ever been broadcast?

    A very nice film, I like it very much, I like Roger’s voice, I’d like to hear him solo more often.

    Nice track from The Stinking Hippie. A little reminiscent of some of the Accidentally On Purpose stuff, especially the sax solo. And is it me or does that outdoor footage look A LOT like the same terrain from the opening sequences of the Perfect Strangers video shot in & around Stowe,Vermont? Peace \/

    Roger Glover, in my opinion, is able to make underrated masterpieces like “the butterfly ball” or great albums like “elements” than horrible things like “the mask” and “snapshot” with a really poor songwriting (the only song that I like is “queen of england”)…

    I do consider ‘Snapshot’ an easy listening masterpiece. But I always skipped this track and the last one, the Irish track I believe is Roger on vocals too. Besides these two songs it is a big favorite of mine. I wish someone would make a 100% album again, it doesn’t seem possible anymore. It’s kind of odd to see this and vibe on it so well, apparently the video helps in this case, because it’s gaining on me, and I like it for once now.

    Apart from MASK I kinda like his solo efforts.

    I understood his “new” one will be alike SNAPSHOT?

    I hope so, then I hear it also has McCafferty and Agnew on it.

    Told Mr Glover after show The less that I look for the more that I find. He replied Ah yes my philosphy to life. Nothing else is nice tune from snapshot.Roger said Randall Bramlett will be on next record. Butterfly ball is a wonderfull record. looking for Elements.
