Glencoe biography
A London-based short-lived unit GLENCOE were founded in 1972 by John TURNBULL (guitars, voices), Norman Watt-ROY (bass, voices), Graham MAITLAND (keyboards, voices), and Stewart FRANCIS (drums, percussion). They all have got inspired by American rock roots, Soul, or Rhythm & Blues. Via Epic Records, their debut eponymous album was released in 1972, and the second one "The Spirit Of Glencoe" in the following year. After disbandment, their musical 'spirit' was taken over another project named LOVING AWARENESS.

Glencoe Crossover Prog

Review by Heart of the Matter

3 stars First of all, let's have it straight: this really good band (hailing from the early seventies in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) is no progressive wonder, at all.

With that clear in mind, the album we have here (their first) is a fine occasion for enjoying ourselves with the solid sound of this classic rock outfit, anyway. To achieve some idea of what they might sound like, think that they shared concerts with Stray and that coupling wasn't arbitrary. Some ingredient of Funk has been pointed out as well, but the most relevant to my ears results to be the fine vocal harmonies, the nice acoustic touches, and the well crafted compositions.

According to fans, the opener "Airport" was the hot spot of their live duty back then

Thanks to dAmOxT7942 for the artist addition.
