Boys Club-Live From L.A.
|Artist||various, Keith Emerson, GLENN HUGHES|
The album is a rare snapshot of a marriage of three musical forces: Keith Emerson, Glenn Hughes and Marc Bonilla
coming together to form what is now been branded as “Boys Club”. Backed by the infamous Dragonchoir (Bob Birch, Mick Mahan, Ed Roth, Joe Travers, and Mike Wallace), it was captured live in 1998 during a series of sold out concerts in California and previously available on a few hundred copies only on Keith Emerson’s homepage, and now for the first time on CD - produced by Marc Bonilla.
The album features cover versions like „A Whiter Shade Of Pale“, „Long Journey Home“ or „Hoedown“, Emerson, Lake & Palmer material (incl. a 20-minut version of “Tarkus“ - the progressive classic, here featuring Hughes on vocals) and a brand new song which was produced especially for the tour. „Back In 1991 and 1992 I had the pleasure to work with two of rock’s greatest founders: Keith Emerson and Glenn Hughes. Being that they had been such an inspiration to me in my formative years I jumped at the opportunity (after somewhat orchestrating it) to work with them both again on the same stage. Along with my brothers in the dragonchoir (Bob Birch, Mick Mahan, Ed Roth, Mike Wallace and Joe Travers) I can honestly say that those magical nights onstage were among the most memorable and rewarding of my life. We are only too happy to finally be able to share some of that magic here on this album...” - Marc Bonilla-
