Glenn Hughes Purple Records reissue schedule continues with the release of his 2000 solo album, Return Of Crystal Karma, OR R.O.C.K. for short. Produced by Glenn Hughes & Michael Scott, it features original songs written with guitarist JJ Marsh and keyboard player Hans Zermüehlen, as well as Gone, co-written with Black Sabbaths Tony Iommi. The album even features a guest cameo from The Cures Lol Tolhurst. Glenn Hughes, undoubtedly The Voice Of Rock, came to prominence in Trapeze, a group which included future Whitesnake guitarist Mel Galley, and Judas Priest drummer, Dave Holland. Trapeze were on the brink of major Stateside success, when in 1973, Glenn was offered the golden opportunity to play bass and sing with Deep Purple, joined by David Coverdale, for Burn, Stormbringer and Come Taste The Band. With the group splitting in 1976, the first fruits of Glenns post-Purple career appeared with Play Me Out in July 1977. Glenn would go on to collaborate with Pat Thrall in Hughes/Thrall, Rainbows Joe Lynn Turner in the Hughes-Turner Project and with Tony Iommi in Black Sabbath... plus a prolific solo career. This 2CD edition includes a 45 minute, live bonus CD, recorded in Sao Paulo, Brazil on 25th November 1999. The expanded booklet features liner notes by Classic Rock magazine's Malcolm Dome based on new interviews with Glenn.
