Medusa (3 CD Edition)
Review by Gary Hill
This is a classy set. I used to own the Medusa album on vinyl many years ago. I don't remember being all that impressed with it.

Various Artists - Back Against the Wall
Review by Gary Hill
There are few people who haven't at least heard of Pink Floyd's The Wall. I would hazard to say that those who have never heard the album are in the minority as well.

Deep Purple - Burn 30th Anniversary Remaster

With the departure of vocalist Ian Gillan and bass player Roger Glover, the remaining members of Deep Purple enlisted the talents of Trapeze vocalist/ bassist Glenn Hughes to fill part of the void, however the role of vocalist continued to elude them.

Review by Lorraine Kay
One of the most sought-after musicians in the prog-rock scene and then some, keyboardist Ryo Okumoto has earned a global reputation performing with some of the biggest names in music, including Kitaro, Natalie Cole, Phil Collins, Aretha Franklin, and Roberta Flack.

Niacin - Deep
Review by Gary Hill
This album captures a nice retro and jazzy sort of prog texture. It does this, almost completely, without the addition of guitar and vocals.

Various Artists - Encores, Legends and Paradoxes

With a cast of players that reads like a prog "who`s who", this ELP tribute takes the classics and makes them fresh and new again. The result is an incredibly listenable piece of music that really entertains.

Iommi - Fused
Review by Gary Hill
Tony Iommi is probably best known as the lead guitarist of Black Sabbath. Arguably along with the other three members of that group Iommi invented heavy metal.

Review by Gary Hill
If you like this version of Deep Purple (guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, frontman David Coverdale, bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, keyboard player Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice) you must own this.

Erik Norlander - Into the Sunset
Review by Gary Hill
This solo release from Rocket Scientist Erik Norlander is a very strong CD. He enlists the aid of quite a few of his friends to pull the disc together, and the result a very solid prog CD with some metallic elements.

Glenn Hughes - Justified Man: Studio Albums 1995-2003
Review by Gary Hill

This is a brand-new six-CD box set that gathers up the studio releases from Glenn Hughes released between 1995 and 2003, but I bet you got that from the title, right?

Deep Purple - Live in California 74
Review by Gary Hill

Deep Purple - Live In London
Review by Greg Olma
There has been much said about the different lineups of Deep Purple but for my money, the Mk 3 lineup stands up as their best.

Black Country Communion - Live Over Europe BluRay
Review by Larry Toering
Since Black Country Communion arrived on the scene, still less than a year ago, they have managed two studio CD releases, and to top it off they have produced what is an absolute state of the art video, and it's tailor made for the Blu-ray experience.

Judas Priest - Metalogy Box Set

Deep Purple - MK III The Final Concert
Review by Greg Olma
Eagle Records is certainly making Christmas come early this year.

Glenn Hughes - Music For The Divine
Review by Gary Hill
I have to say that it seems any more that bonus tracks are becoming a bad idea. Had the last two bonus tracks been left off of this disc, it would have been a pretty perfect album.
More...
Nikolo Kotzev - Nostradamus
Review by Gary Hill
There was a time in the '70s when rock operas were all the rage. Since then they have been pretty scarce, and many times with good reason.
More...
Phenomena - Phenomena
Review by Gary Hill
This is a reissue of an album that was originally released in 1984.

More...
Phenomena - Phenomena II - Dream Runner
Review by Gary Hill
Given the scope of musicians on this set, I'm shocked I've never heard of these guys before. This is a reissue of an album released in 1987.

Glenn Hughes - Play Me Out - 2CD Edition
Review by Gary Hill
This new reissue finds Glenn Hughes well into his funk period on the first disc, and in disco-land on the second. Personally, I think the main album is more effective.

Judas Priest - Point of Entry Expanded Edition
Review by Gary Hill
When Point of Entry was released, it was definitely an unexpected sound for Judas Priest.

Judas Priest - Ram It Down
Review by Gary Hill

Judas Priest - Screaming for Vengeance - Special 30th Anniversary Edition
Review by Gary Hill
I previously reviewed the original version of this CD.

More...
Black Sabbath - Seventh Star
Review by Greg Olma

This is a weird album in the Black Sabbath catalogue.  Initially meant as a solo record, the label and management “persuaded” Tony Iommi to release it under the banner of Black Sabbath featuring Tony Iommi.  


More...
Various Artists - Sin-Atra
Review by Gary Hill
Featuring hard rocking adaptations of Frank Sinatra songs, this is kind of a mixed bag.

More...

Review by Gary Hill

More...
Glenn Hughes - Soul Mover
Review by Gary Hill
Glenn Hughes should be a familiar name to fans of hard rock. He started out with the legendary band Trapeze and then worked with Deep Purple.
More...
Iommi - The 1996 DEP Sessions
Review by Greg Olma
I can just picture it now. Tony Iommi and a friend are going through a studio to do some "Spring cleaning". They come across a tape labeled "With Glenn Hughes 1996 DEP Sessions".
More...
Judas Priest - The Essential Judas Priest
Review by Gary Hill
Riding high on a resurgence from the reuniting of the band with vocalist Rob Halford, Judas Priest are releasing a 2 CD collection called "The Essential Judas Priest." The set has two songs from their latest studio release, Angel of Retribution, which make a nice addition in the form of bookends.

More...
Glenn Hughes - The Official Bootleg Box: Volume Two 1993-2013
Review by Gary Hill
This massive CD box set gathers a batch of Glenn Hughes bootlegs. I'm guessing you could figure that out from the title, though, right?

This is one of the entries in the new series of Glenn Hughes reissues. Like the rest, they add a second CD, this time a concert from 2000.

Various Artists - To Cry You A Song: A Collection of Tull Tales
Review by Gary Hill
One of the first tribute albums ever done by Magna Carta, this one includes some intriguing arrangements of Jethro Tull songs. There are some definite winners here (witness Aqualung, To Cry You a Song, and Locomotive Breath) and no real losers.
More...
Judas Priest - Turbo
Review by Gary Hill
When this album first came out, it almost seemed like a slap in the face.

Judas Priest - Turbo (Remastered Edition)
Review by Gary Hill
I previously reviewed the original edition of this.

More...
Judas Priest - Turbo 30
Review by Gary Hill
This brand new 30th Anniversary edition of Turbo is classy stuff. Sure, Turbo is arguably the weakest album in Priest's catalog, but this set has the major bonus of a double CD live set.

More...
Voodoo Hill - Wild Seed of Mother Earth
Review by Gary Hill
First, I have to state the obvious - outside of a handful of guys, Rob Halford and Geoff Tate come to mind, Glenn Hughes has the best voice in hard rock and metal - the man is incredible! So, anything Hughes sings on gets some points just for his appearance.
