For his first solo show in Australia, on the 17th June 2006 at famed Sydney venue The Basement, Hughes brought his unique brand of rock-funk to a new audience. This DVD documents that historic event. Indeed, this is one of Britain’s greatest rock singers in acoustic mode, intimate and live, and his soulful, distinctive voice is in top-notch condition throughout: he pleads, he soars, he rocks and he croons.
The songs range across his career, taking in material from his solo albums like 1977’s Play Me Out (‘I Found A Woman’), to 2005’s Soul Mover (the rousing title track, ‘Last Mistake’) and his newest release Music For The Divine (a passionate cover of the Moody Blues’ classic ‘Nights In White Satin’, ‘This Is How I Feel’). On top of that, Hughes returns to his legendary Deep Purple days for ‘This Time Around’, ‘You Keep On Moving’, an astonishing rendition of ‘Mistreated’ and a duet with celebrated Aussie Rock front man Jimmy Barnes on ‘Gettin’ Tighter’.
