Glenn Hughes Continues A Bootleg Series

GLENN HUGHES - The Official Bootleg Box Set - Volume Two

The Official Bootleg Box Set –
Volume Two

For what it’s worth, Glenn Hughes is well represented on a bootleg front, although it’ll take a true aficionado to sift through the veteran’s concert recordings to find the defining ones in terms of material. Fortunately, there are genuine connoisseurs who can do that – and do that, indeed. Last year saw the release of “The Official Bootleg Box Set” – subtitled “Volume One” to indicate there would be more (unavailable for review, it was detailed here), and its follow-up will appear on May 31st.

Spanning 1993-2013 and, thus, overlapping with its predecessor, this time the collection is to have six, not seven, discs, and while there’s also one previously issued item – “Incense And Peaches” saw the light of day on the artist’s own label in 2000, the CD stands apart from the rest of the series due to the inclusion of studio, rather than live, cuts. Yet if the 1993’s on-stage performances reflect Hughes’ typical repertoire, save for “The House Of The Rising Sun” – one a few covers he delivered through the years, a take on Ozzy Osbourne‘s “Goodbye To Romance” that was played on radio in 1992 is attached to Disc Five – numbers which were laid down in 1995 and 1996 seem quite interesting thanks to Glenn taking the material from the then-fresh “Feel” and “Addiction” to the audience. All in all, a nice addition to his catalogue, the sometimes raw sound notwithstanding.

And here’s the details of what’s in the box.
