btw had to google play me out, really should investigate Hughes output more, even at the time he managed to slip under the door, I have AFAIK never heard a Trapeze track which is strange considering the Purple/Judas Priest connection


"Play Me Out" is Hughes in Stevie Wonder mode. It doesn't rock in a Purple sense but it does bring the fonk in parts. Really good blue eyed soul album with nads on. Like a rocked up Noel Mccalla / Moon(spelling?) or rocked down Streetwalkers. I was already a big Motown fan at that time so I was not too phased when it came out on import but it's not "Come Taste The Band".

Trapeze are a bit over-rated overall but "Medusa" is a really good record and bits of "You Are The Music" ditto. Though by then they sound more like SNAFU than Purple.
