Teenage Licks, their third album, came quickly in Their sound had grown even stronger and more potent; vocalist Maggie Bell was quickly becoming one of the best female blues vocalists since Janis Joplin, and the music reflected that. The music buying audience agreed; Ontinuous Performance was their best selling record. This double CD set features all the original tracks from the albums Teenage Licks and Ontinuous Performance…plus four additional live bonus tracks.
IsraBox - Music is Life! 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.
Scottish blue rock act Stone the Crows were dealt more than a few blows as they attempted to record their third album in With Maggie now as the main focal point from a vocal perspective, the sound of the band changed slightly, and things got even more dicey when Harvey was electrocuted on stage in , before the band had even finished their soon to be fourth album. However, things were never the same, and the band split soon afterwards with four albums in just over two years.
This 2CD Angel Air Records set collects the two long out of print albums Teenage Licks and Ontinuous Performance, and while they are perhaps not quite as impressive as the band's first two releases, they are still prime examples of fiery early '70s blues rock.
Teenage Licks features a host of hot tunes, including the smoldering rocker "Mr Wizard", the slow blues piece "Don't Think Twice" featuring an emotional, Janis Joplin styled vocal from Bell , the heavy rocker "Big Jim Salter", and Harvey's sizzling hard rock licks on the raucous "Keep On Rollin' ".

I was taking a chance but its incredibly good, and very contemporary. My musical tastes are eclectic, and so too are Stone The Crows. Particularly like Mr Wizard and One Five Eight, but Maggie Bell has a great ballsy, bluesey voice and Les harvey is greatly missed /5(14).
