Glenn Hughes Launches A Remasters Series

GLENN HUGHES - The Remasters

Glenn Hughes‘ today’s omnipresence may grate many of those who can’t see it as a revivalist’s counterbalance to the veteran’s erstwhile being down on his luck. The singing bassist’s stints with DEEP PURPLE and BLACK SABBATH ended with drug-related lapses, TRAPEZE reunions and collaboration with Gary Moore didn’t pan out either, but mid-’90s saw Glenn embrace his foibles and experiencing a sort of catharsis. That’s where and when Hughes found the strength to become what he is now, and that’s why on June 30th his two albums from that era – “Feel” and “Addiction” – will be re-released in remastered and expanded form, although not before the artist’s reissue programme on Cherry Red is launched on May 19th with a 2CD version of his solo debut, “Play Me Out” from 1977.

All these are very peculiar and, therefore, underestimated records, “Play Me Out” a pop-funk album, “Feel” a soul-oriented one, augmented with a Stevie Wonder cover, and “Addiction” dark and heavy but housing Glenn’s arguably best ballad “Talk About It” alongside other psyche-cleaning numbers. To be out as double-disc packages now, the titles feature rare, albeit somewhat known to connoisseurs, material such as the pieces from “Four On The Floor” project, as well as previously unreleased cuts, including Hughes’ concert documents. Hopefully, the revitalized Purple Records will span his entire catalogue, because gems are aplenty there.
