Info zu Live at the BBC

Über vier Stunden BBC-Aufnahmen aus den Jahren 1969 - 1972, remastered von Eroc. Mitschnitte aus so bahnbrechenden Sendungen wie Top Gear und Sounds Of The 70s.

Die 1969 in Glasgow gegründete Band Stone The Crows, die sich in den schottischen Pubs die Zähne ausgebissen hatte, hatte alles, was sie brauchte: nicht nur einen, sondern zwei leidenschaftliche Sänger, einen talentierten Gitarristen, eine Rhythmusgruppe, die schon mit John Mayall gespielt hatte, und die Ehre, den Led Zeppelin-Manager Peter Grant als Produzenten zu haben. Mit einer Reihe von von der Kritik hochgelobten Alben konnten sich Stone The Crows auf der Bühne und live im Studio wirklich frei entfalten, wie diese hervorragenden Aufnahmen aus den Jahren 1969 - 1972 beweisen.

Das unbestrittene Juwel in ihrer Krone war Leadsängerin Maggie Bell. Sie wurde in Großbritannien mehrfach als beste Sängerin ausgezeichnet und verfügte über eine raue, kehlige Stimme, die zwar nicht an die nackte Emotion und die Bandbreite von Janis Joplin heranreichte, aber ihrem Stil wahrscheinlich näher kam als jede andere Sängerin. Als ihr kraftvoller Gesang die Aufmerksamkeit von Peter Grant erregte, reagierte er mit dem Satz "Stone The Crows! - führte dazu, dass die Band ihren Namen änderte.

Dieses 4-Alben-Set enthält Aufnahmen von Studio-Sessions mit John Peel, Bob Harris und Mike Harding sowie von Konzerten, die das aufkeimende Blues / Rock-Können der Crows dokumentieren. Von der Originalbesetzung mit dem Gitarristen / Songwriter Leslie Harvey bis hin zu den späteren Phasen mit dem jungen Jimmy McCulloch an der Gitarre vereint "Live At The BBC" Sendeversionen von Titeln aus ihren vier Alben sowie Songs, die häufig in ihren Live-Sets zu hören waren. Disc 4, die in Zusammenarbeit mit Ashley Wood zusammengestellt wurde, enthält weitere acht Aufnahmen aus dem Jahr 1970.

Das Set wurde von Eroc für eine optimale Klangqualität neu gemastert und enthält ein fotoreiches Booklet mit informativen Anmerkungen von Chris Welch von Repertoire sowie ein neues Interview mit Maggie Bell.

Stone the Crows
was a tough-luck, working class, progressive soul band that came out of the pubs of Scotland in the early '70s. They had everything going for them at the start: not one, but two gritty singers, a talented guitarist, a rhythm section that had played with John Mayall, and the name recognition of having Led Zeppelin manager Peter Grant as their producer. Despite favorable reviews by the critics, however, they never managed to sell their hybridized soul music to a large audience. In addition, they lost two of their key members early on, one of whom was tragically electrocuted, and the group broke up after four albums.

Their biggest contribution to rock was the immense vocal talent of one Maggie Bell. Winner of several Top Girl Singer awards in Britain, Bell had a raunchy, gutbucket voice that, although it fell short of the naked emotion and range of Janis Joplin's, came probably closer to her style than any other female singer. She first attracted notice when she jumped up on stage at a show in Glasgow to wail with Alex Harvey of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band. Impressed by her talent (and audacity), Harvey hooked her up with his guitar-playing younger brother Les, then fronting a local band called the Kinning Park Ramblers. After playing army bases in Europe for several years as Power, Bell, Harvey, bassist Jim Dewar, keyboardist Jon McGinnis, and drummer Colin Allen (who had played with future bass player Steve Thompson in John Mayall's band), came to the attention of Peter Grant and they changed their name to Stone the Crows, which supposedly is a Scottish variation of "the hell with it."

Both of their first two albums received good reviews upon release, but sold very meagerly. Then bassist/vocalist Jim Dewar quit the band to join Robin Trower's fledgling group, to be replaced by the non-singing Steve Thompson. Shortly after releasing Teenage Licks, guitarist Les Harvey was electrocuted onstage during a gig at Swansea University. This appeared to end the band, but they carried on, recruiting young Jimmy McCulloch from Thunderclap Newman and released "'Ontinuous Performance." Although the rock press lauded the singing of Bell, her group couldn't seem to emerge from the shadows and they broke up after this last album, with McCulloch flying away to join Paul McCartney in Wings.
