Trapeze’s Destiny!

‘Destiny’ is the new single from Lost Tapes Vol. 1, an album full of previously unreleased song from British rock band Trapeze, collated from band songwriter Tom Galley’s private archive – Great songs finally seeing the light of day.

The song is from the early 70, featuring Glenn Hughes (Lead vocals) Mel Galley (Guitars), Terry Rowley (bass & keyboards) and Dave Holland (drums) and still sounds tremendously fresh and contemporary today.

It follows ‘Breakdown‘ out last month, recorded during the band’s last phase in the 90s featuring Hughes (Lead vocals, bass), Galley (Guitars, vocals) and Holland (drums).

Both singles are available on all digital platforms and you can watch the official lyric videos right here at RAMzine.

Lost Tapes Vol. 1 will be released on 24th November through Metalville Records. The tracks are a collection of previously unreleased Trapeze songs compiled by Tom Galley, brother of the band’s founding member Mel Galley. They are from various recording sessions, starting in the early 70s until the band’s break-up in the 90s.

The tracks not only prove how good the various Trapeze line-ups were, but also capture the passion, energy and enthusiasm in the making of the songs themselves.

Lost Tapes Vol. 1 contains a total of 14 songs that are just as first-class as the well-known tracks on the band’s albums. And some of these tracks may well become classics in the same way. The album offers the opportunity to hear Trapeze with all its original energy, and shows that there was much more untapped potential lying dormant between the musicians involved than had previously been assumed.

Trapeze never stood still over the years. If time and circumstances had been different, we can well imagine the heights this unique band could have reached.

  1. There is no Glenn Hughes on this version of “Destiny”. I would guess this was part of the demos turned over to Coverdale prior to joining Whitesnake. Or maybe Phenomena demo too?
