THE GLITTER BAND Glitteresque (SJPCD282)

The Glitter Band are most famously associated by many with the disgraced singer Gary Glitter but the Glitter Band were around before linking-up with Gary Glitter and had a string of hits during the 70’s under their own name (the biggest of these hits being ‘Angel Face’ which is on this CD).

This CD is a re-recording of their hits plus a few rock ‘n’ roll standards like ‘The Wanderer’ and ‘Twisting The Night Away’...

The band still tour worldwide and this CD will certainly be of interest to fans of the band and the 70’s glam rock era. Much better than some dodgy live recording you often get by bands like this that’s for sure! ***1/2
