Album Review

For many, Trapeze truly hit their peak in the early '70s, with such releases as Medusa and You Are the Music...We're Just the Band, and more specifically, when their lineup consisted of Glenn Hughes, Mel Galley, and Dave Holland. By 1975, Hughes was long gone from the group (having split to join up with Deep Purple a couple of years earlier), but Galley and Holland soldiered on with Hughes' replacement, Pete Wright, and another guitarist, Rob Kendrick (with Galley assuming vocal duties). And it's this era and lineup that are featured on Live at the Boat Club 1975. For those who assume that the Hughes-less Trapeze was incapable of creating some on-stage excitement, this set will certainly prove you wrong. For starters, Galley has a surprisingly strong voice, and is able to — for the most part — match Hughes' soulful delivery on such ditties as "You Are the Music" and "Jury." But the group blows the doors off the venue with a simply explosive/set-closing rendition of "The Raid." While most fans will understandably seek out a Hughes-era live recording if they're on the hunt for a Trapeze concert disc, Live at the Boat Club 1975 is better than you'd think.

Customer Reviews

I'm the first one to write a review... I hope I'm not the last

Trapeze was one of the finest pieces of rock art in the 70's. I keep wondering how band members such as glenn houghs and the other trapeze members (Mel Galley) can be so unpopular and then split up into bands like Judas Priest, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath? a lot of people would like Trapeze if they all got a chance to listen to it.

Glenn Hughes

The music on this album is great. It takes me back to circa 1974 and a Trapeze set at the late, great Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, TX. But the lead vocals on Medusa, You are the Music... and others most definitely are not sung by Glenn Hughes. I'm pretty sure they are sung by Mel. The downside of purchasing songs from iTunes is there's no jacket with a description and summary of the writers and artists. The album is great nonetheless and a welcome addition to my Trapeze collection.

I Wonder why Many bands make a connection with Trapeze

I like this album but one question i can't solve is why people dissagreed so much. Many bands were connected to Trapeze like Black Sabbath but i never know why they did it. It's weird cause with a different person, i think the band does better it self.
