Continuation of the topic. In 1971, Stone The Crows was celebrated in almost all prestigious festivals, and Maggie, which many called the heiress of Janis Joplin, was awarded the title of “Best Female Vocalist” from the magazine “Melody Maker”. Everything went well, but on May 3, 1972, a tragedy occurred. During the soundcheck guitarist Les Harvey received a severe electric shock and immediately died. The remaining musicians still decided to continue working and invited to replace Peter Green. However, something went wrong with him, and after a temporary collaboration with Steve Howe, Stone The Crows took Jimmy McCulloch to himself. Soon it became clear that Harvey could not be replaced and the team disintegrated. Subsequently, Allen joined the Focus, McCullough worked in Wings, and Bell released a couple of albums….~

Stone the Crows were at the very top of their game when they climbed the Montreux stage in 1972, flying high off their Teenage Licks album, released the previous year. But the songs featured here on Live Crows: Montreux '72 were mainly covers – “Penicillin Blues,” a song the Crows made their own, an exultant epic take on “Hollis Brown,” and “Danger Zone,” which showcased their deepest blues. The band left the stage triumphant, but were laid low several weeks later by the tragic death of guitarist Leslie Harvey. The devastated Crows attempted to carry on, bringing in Jimmy McCulloch as a replacement, with the live Ontinuous Performance released that September. In the new year, the Crows were again recorded live, this time at the Beat Workshop in Germany, for the In Concert TV series. It was a fine gig, as the DVD shows, but the exhilaration heard at Montreux is missing. Harvey’s death ripped the heart out of the Crows, and the band folded not long after. This two-disc package, however, is a wonderful tribute to the group, bringing together both the previously released CD and DVD, the latter of which also features interviews with Maggie Bell and Colin Allen, as well as a band biography…. by Jo-Ann Greene….~
