GLENN HUGHES: Live CD/DVD Details Revealed

Former DEEP PURPLE/BLACK SABBATH singer Glenn Hughes will release a double audio CD and a single-disc DVD, entitled "Soulfully Live In The City Of Angels", on September 20 through Frontiers Records (Marquee/Avalon in Japan and Hellion Records in Brazil).

"Soulfully Live In The City Of Angels" was shot live on January 11, 2004 before an audience of friends and selected regulars at www.glennhughes.com.

Those privileged enough to have graced the soiree in the intimate setting at Sound Image studio in North Hollywood, California witnessed the bassist/vocalist's current band of longtime guitarist JJ Marsh and keyboard player Ed Roth being swelled by none other than RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith.

Helping out on backing vocals are former QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow and ex-SANTANA man Alex Ligertwood, with second guitarist George Nastos doubling up where appropriate.

The repertoire is balanced between latter-day choices like "Written All Over Your Face", "Higher Places (Song For Bonzo)", "Wherever You Go" and "Can’t Stop The Flood" and the trusted crowd-pleasers. This includes selections from TRAPEZE ("Seafull" and "Medusa"), HUGHES/THRALL ("First Step Of Love") and of course DEEP PURPLE ("Mistreated", "Getting' Tighter" and "You Keep On Movin'").

"I'm happy again and of course I love being up there on stage. You've got to see Glenn Hughes on the boards to really understand him," Hughes said in a press release. "I'm so excited that rock in general is coming again into a good head of steam and I also feel really good about where I am personally."

Final track listing of the double live CD is as follows:
