Glenn Hughes – Soul Mover

Glenn Hughes; now that’s a name I hadn’t heard in a very long time. Hughes has been around all this time, but somehow I’d missed a lot of what he was doing.

Soul Mover is his latest offering and it’s one of the best things I’ve ever heard from him. From his days with Deep Purple to his solo projects to The Hughes Turner Project (with Joe Lynn Turner) and stints with Black Sabbath, Hughes has been rather prolific in the industry and that’s a good thing for us.

But this album has a flavour all it’s own. It’s not Deep Purple and it’s not Sabbath either. However, it does have a certain taste of Hughes Turner, but it’s still not that.

Hughes has been around and it shows; the professionalism and quality of the album are remarkable. And Hughes still obviously has a lot to say and that’s a very good thing for us.

An excellent selection of tracks, an excellent musician and a distinctive, trade mark voice. This is a must for anyone who enjoys great rock.
