Glenn Hughes - Play Me Out (1977) - Lp

Glenn Hughes (born 21 August 1951) is an English rock bassist and vocalist, best known for playing bass and performing vocals for rock pioneers Trapeze, the Mk. III and IV line-ups of Deep Purple , as well as working with Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi as a solo artist.

On 8 April 2016, Hughes was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Deep Purple. Hughes is acclaimed for his wide vocal range and has been nicknamed "The Voice Of Rock" by fans.

Play Me Out his the first solo record. It was first released in July 1977. The album marked a definite change in style to Hughes’ hard rock albums with Deep Purple, moving into a funk and soul inspired direction.

Hughes had originally planned to release a solo album prior to Deep Purple splitting up. David Bowie had been initially lined up to produce the album; Bowie himself had been delving into similar musical territory at the time with Young Americans. However, due to Deep Purple’s touring schedule it was impossible for Hughes to find the time to make the album.

After Deep Purple fell apart in 1976 Hughes returned to the album and started recording at the Lee Sound Studio in Pelsall.
Hughes’ former Trapeze band-mates Mel Galley and Dave Holland supplied the guitars and drums, respectively for the album and in 1976 Trapeze reunited for a tour.

The reunion was short lived and the US tour was not completed.
Hughes came back to the studio in the autumn of 1976 to make finishing touches to the album, but it was almost a year before the album was released.

With the rise of Punk rock, it was hard for Hughes to get backing for his record and Play Me Out was initially only released in Germany. It wasn’t released in the UK until 1978 where it received little attention and was deleted not long after.

Hughes plays the following instruments on this album: Lead Vocals, Fender Bass guitar, Electric and Acoustic Guitars, Fender Rhodes 88 Electric Piano, Mini-Moog, Hohner Clavinet, ARP String Essemble.
