Stone The Crows - Live In Montreux 1972

Follow the angel...

Friend - Penicillin Blues - Love 74 - Danger Zone - Hollis Brown

During 1969 Maggie Bell and Les Harvey formed Stone The Crows. The band had their first critically acclaimed album released early in 1970, followed later in the year by 'Ode To John Law' and in 1971 'Teenage Licks'.

Maggie won the Melody Maker's readers poll for Best Female Singer in 1971 but shortly afterwards, on 3 May 1972, Les Harvey was tragically killed after being electrocuted on stage at Swansea's Top Rank Ballroom.

The band decided to soldier on and floated the prospect of a replacement guitarist: Peter Green was mooted, Steve Howe played one gig to assist and Jimmy McCulloch finished off the sessions for what became the band's final album 'Ontinuous Performanxce' released late 1972.

The band broke up in 1973, and Maggie Bell went on to have a very successful solo career. She said recently 'Stone The Crows was a great band and we had some wonderful times on the road. Our music was very good for the times and when you consider it was all done 30 years ago, it doesn't sound too bad!'

This wonderful recording is released for the first time, supplied from Maggie Bell's personal archives. The 8 page booklet features informative sleeve notes.
