The second volume of Trapeze's official studio and live albums, collected onto five CDs. Formed from two Midlands bands, Finders Keepers, featuring Mel Galley (guitar/vocals), Dave Holland (drums) and Glenn Hughes (bass/vocals), and the Montanas' John Jones (vocals/ trumpet) and Terry Rowley (keyboards/guitar/flute), Trapeze were discovered by The Moody Blues, and signed to their own Threshold Records label. After three well received LPs, Glenn Hughes joined Deep Purple in 1973, finding worldwide fame and acclaim. Mel Galley assumed the role of lead singer and front man, joined on bass by Pete Wright and second guitarist, Rob Kendrick, with Dave Holland on drums. The quartet released 'Hot Wire' (CD1) on Warner Bros. In 1974, produced by Neil Slaven. 'Trapeze' (also on CD1), their second self-titled LP, was released by Warner Bros. In 1975. Produced by Steve Smith at Island Studios, the four-piece were also re-joined by Glenn Hughes on the tracks 'Chances' and 'Nothing For Nothing'. Trapeze's sixth and final studio album, 1979's 'Hold On' (CD2) was co-produced with famed producer Jimmy Miller. Now with future Uriah Heep singer Pete Goalby, 'Hold On' features six songs from Mel Galley and three from Goalby. 'Live At The Boar Club' (CD3) was recorded on September 13, 1975 in Nottingham, UK. Featuring Mel Galley, Rob Kendrick, Pete Wright and Dave Holland, with Terry Rowley on synthesizer. 'Live At Arlington' (CD4) saw the return to their classic power trio of Mel Galley, Dave Holland and original singer / bassist Glenn Hughes. Returning to play for some of their most loyal fans with a show at the Texas Hall Auditorium in Arlington, on September 12, 1976. By the release of 'Live in Texas: Dead Armadillos' (CD5) in 1981, founder member Dave Holland had joined Judas Priest for a run of worldwide hit records. A live album recorded by the 'Hold On' line-up of Galley, Goalby and Wright joined by Steve Bray on drums, the album cherry picks the best of their six studio LPs.
