Glenn Hughes, “The Voice Of Rock”, first came to prominence in Trapeze, a band featuring future Whitesnake guitarist Mel Galley, and future Judas Priest drummer, Dave Holland. Following their third album, “You Are The Music, We’re Just The Band”, Glenn joined Deep Purple in 1973 for their “Burn”, “Stormbringer” and “Come Taste The Band” albums. Deep Purple split in 1976, with its members following various solo and side-projects. The first fruits of Glenn’s post Purple career appeared with “Play Me Out” (also available on Purple Records), issued in July 1977. Glenn would go on to collaborate with Pat Thrall in Hughes-Thrall, Joe Lynn Turner in the Hughes-Turner Project, with Tony Iommi in Black Sabbath, plus pursue a prolific solo career through the 1990s and beyond.

• CD1: Glenn’s fourth solo album, “Feel”, was originally released in 1995, and finds the singer veering towards more pop, soul and funk sounds rather than the hard rock that he’s often better known for. Former Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum guests, and the album also sees a welcome collaboration with his Hughes-Thrall partner, Pat Thrall.

• CD2: Glenn’s fifth solo album, “Addiction” was originally released in 1996, and unlike the more soulful pop of his previous record “Feel”, “Addiction” sees the singer returning to a much harder rocking sound. Guitarist Marc Bonilla performs, co-produces and co-wrote nine of the ten original songs.

• CD3: Glenn’s 1999 solo album, “The Way It Is” was produced by Glenn Hughes & Michael Scott, as well as featuring original material written with guitarist JJ Marsh. The album also includes two versions of the Jimi Hendrix classic, ‘Freedom’.

• CD4: Glenn’s 2000 solo album, “Return Of The Crystal Karma”, was produced by Glenn Hughes & Michael Scott, featuring original material written with guitarist JJ Marsh and keyboard player Hans Zermüehlen, it also includes the track ‘Gone’, co-written with Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi. The album even features a guest cameo from The Cure’s Lol Tolhurst.

• CD5: Released in 2001, “Building The Machine” was the follow-up to 2000’s “Return of Crystal Karma”, and as well as featuring original material written with long-time collaborator and guitarist JJ Marsh, the album also includes a version of the Deep Purple classic, ‘Highball Shooter’, a song which had originally appeared on 1974’s “Stormbringer”. Special guests include guitarist Pat Travers, who duets with Hughes on the Rare Earth cover ‘I Just Want To Celebrate’, plus Toto’s Bobby Kimball and The Cure’s Lol Tolhurst appearing on backing vocals.

• CD6: With a title that pays homage to one of Glenn’s heroes, Stevie Wonder’s “Songs in the Key of Life”, the album mixes his beloved funk with a deliberate 70s style hard rock. As well as featuring long-time collaborator JJ Marsh on guitar, the album includes guest spots from bassist Billy Sheehan and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith, as well as co-producer Jeff Kollman. ‘Higher Places (Song for Bonzo)’ is a song dedicated to Glenn’s dear friend, Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.
