A fabulous live album that is on par with Deep Purple's "Made in Japan." Glenn has a classic voice that is obviously the center of this album, but the music is excellent as well. The whole thing has a real lat 70's/early 80' vibe to it. I've been wanting to get one of Glenn's solo discs since I absolutely love his work on Sabbath's "Seventh Star." Finally secured this German copy through a good friend. I can't believe a guy with as many credentials and with such a powerful voice can't get a record out in the States.

What would one expect from a legendary artist who has appeared in such influential metal bands as Deep Purple and Black Sabbath? Guitar driven rock and roll? Perhaps some heavy blues? Well, let me tell you this isn't either of those. It's a bit shocking, yet at the same time, very enjoyable. The disc starts off as one might expect with "Big Time" a semi-heavy AOR rocker but then proceeds to change at track two. From this point on the entire disc can only be described as FUNK! Seriously! I mean right down to the James Brown screams, funky slap bass driven songs, and the Stevie Wonder cover "Maybe Your Baby." I was expecting AOR and probably some blues but for some reason I just didn't expect funk. What is even more surprising to me is that I enjoyed the disc so much that I have played it several times since I acquired the disc a few days ago. Who would have thought...? I'm sure in the future this disc will be relegated to mood music for me, but I have to say that Glenn Hughes is a man of diverse talent. Will have to investigate some more of this man's work.
