Synopsis

Album Description
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the 1977 debut solo album from the Deep Purple/Trapeze member and Rock icon. Far removed from the Hard Rock of Purple, Glenn showcased his incredible vocal range over a more soulful collection of material - and the album received several rave reviews in the music press at the time. Glenn always wanted his first LP to be available again though, and co- operated on this re-release fully - writing notes and contributing four unissued bonus tracks, plus an unreleased single A-side. It has been many years since it first reappeared on CD, so there is a lot of demand for this reissue. The CD booklet carries notes by writer Simon Robinson, the full lyrics, plus contemporary cuttings and memorabilia.

BUY FIRST, READ AFTER.

"If there is one Glenn Hughes album you should have, it's this one.Released not long after Purple's split, this album contains the best tracks Hughes has ever written and arranged.With his old-Trapeze friends,Mel Galley and Dave Holland among many guests, glenn Hughes explores a crystal-clear, complex funk rock music.Completely different from his early works or from what he'll do after.PLAY ME OUT is the album of a free musician-or so it feel like-Free for the PURPLE or The god of voice of hard rock sticker that is still following him.
It is almost if like during the composing and recording of this album time stopped and Hughes got in connection with THE soul of soul...maybe with Tommy Bolin-On Play me out lot of the arrangements remind us of BOLIN's solo albums-Female backing vocals, Horns, percussion but all very subtle.
SPACE HIGH...an inspired funk song-the title says it all, is just one pearl among many others on this album.
For the tracks 11 to 14, I don't have a clue if they're good or not as I own another version of this cd with other bonus tracks-some disco [stuff] better left unreleased.
Anyway, Play me out deserves its 5 stars, if not with the bonus tracks, the way Hughes intended it to be.
FUNK, SOUL , DEEP but not purple, VIBRANT , BRILLIANT, enough?"

"Following from the split of Deep Purple Glenn Hughes recorded
this album of the soul funk which was so much a part of him that
didn't get to be aired during his Deep Purple tenure.
Be warned, this is not a rock album. If you're looking for
screaming guitars and huge drums forget it. This is a showcase
for Glenn's amazing vocal ability and all the way through you
can hear he's having fun with it.One of the best albums ever
by THE best male vocalist modern music has seen."

"I can. Don't let Danny t's review scare you away. If you have an ounce of funk in your little finger, you're gonna need this. "Trying" to be Stevie Wonder? Not hardly. The guy probably sounds like this when he calls the cats in for dinner: he was born with it. Of COURSE Glenn's rock stuff is great:he is the Voice of Rock. But if you want to know what is in his SOUL, then you'd better pick this up."
