Deep Purple keyboardist Don Airey has launched a pre-order PledgeMusic campaign for a K2 – Tales of Triumph And Tragedy box set. He initially recorded the album in 1988 at Sarm East Studios, London, and was inspired by an article written by mountaineer Jim Curran about his harrowing experiences on the 1986 expedition to K2 that claimed the life of 12 climbers. The album features guest appearances by artists including Gary Moore, Cozy Powell, Colin Bluntstone and Chris Thompson. The K2 box set will be limited to just 100 copies, and each comes with a signed and numbered certificate. The package will also contain a CD with seven previously unreleased bonus tracks, a DVD featuring performances and interviews, a repro press pack, a promotional photograph and a map of K2. Airey says: “You are going to get something that will please everyone and hopefully you'll like the music too!”
The new Glenn Hughes studio album, "Resonate" just has been released on 4th November 2016, and its deluxe edition including a bonus track, what was originally recorded for a release of a possible Gary Moore tribute album by Bob Daisley. It seems to be on pause, so maybe Glenn Hughes just decided to include his acoustic version of "Nothing's The Same" on the deluxe edition of his new album. All the versions (CD, CD+DVD, Vinyl) are already available to buy, but you will find this lovely tribute only on this deluxe edition. "Nothing's The Same" is one of Gary's many beautiful compositions, but this one is mentioned so rarely, that is great to hear a cover version finally. Especially by someone like Glenn Hughes. This song was originally released on Gary's "After Hours" album in March 1992.
Two of Gary Moore's classic rock albums will be re-released on vinyl
this autumn in January February 2017!
