Phenomena trilogy

UPDATE : John Tucker tells me the new CDs slack all the bonus tracks which turned up on previous editions, not sure why! UPDATE 2 : apparently there is a dispute over ownership.

The first three Phenomena albums, the brainchild of Tom Galley, have been reissued, I think this is the third time they’ve been re-released. But if you haven’t picked them up before, then now’s your chance. The first one features Glenn Hughes of course, alongside Cozy Powell, Mel Galley, Neil Murray, Don Airey and Ted McKenna, who all have mostly lengthy connections to the Purple family tree (Ted worked with Ian Gillan on his solo project). Glenn also turns up on Phenomena 2 but had jumped ship for the third disc. There are new sleeve notes and a remaster for all three discs. The press release does not give a label, but the music is now on iTunes.
CD suppliers? We tend to recommend these days, as they play fair with suppliers and everyone and can order most titles.

    Cherry Red Records says it has resurrected the Purple Records label. Showing a few reissues including Butterfly Ball box set plus Glenn Hughes later work now issued under the new Purple Records. What is the story here as you ran it before in its last reincarnation?

      Cherry Red runs hundreds of independent labels, and the latest version of Purple Records has been with them for some time. The new guys running it made it clear they didn’t want me involved so I can’t tell you any more!

    The label is Cherry Red.
