Views:

Back to 1971 tonight. Stone The Crows were a Scottish rock/blues outfit that had a loyal following among other musicians and the press but were not considered a commercial success. Sadly, they weren't together long enough to gain a wider popularity, but their lead singer, Maggie Bell went on to a successful solo career after the band broke up. Unfortunately, the demise of Stone The Crows had nothing to do with popularity or sales or personalities. It had to do with a tragic event witnessed by a horrified audience in the accidental onstage electrocution of Les Harvey, the brilliant guitarist during a performance. During the short time they were together they recorded four albums (actually 3) and toured quite extensively. This concert, recorded at The Paris Theatre in London in 1971 offers ample proof of just how good they were live and what might have been had tragedy not stepped into the picture.
