In just two short years, Glass Harp had risen from the basements of college bars to the most prestigious American concert venues of the day. Its reputation as a must-see live act had spread to every corner of the country and the band was starting to gain the attention and respect at the highest levels in rock music.

The band’s first two albums, combined with its ever-growing concert audiences had become a subject of interest to the media. In late 1971, the band was invited to perform a live concert on San Francisco’s legendary FM radio station KSAN – a production of rock impresario Bill Graham. Back east, the band was becoming a regular on Cleveland’s influential FM giant WMMS, which had broadcast several live and in-studio performances by the group. Glass Harp was a pioneer in live television concerts, becoming one of the earliest known groups to be simulcast on both public television and radio. A landmark of the group’s popularity came as an appearance with The Kinks at Carnegie Hall, where the band was given a standing ovation by a normally indifferent New York audience.

For the third and final time, Glass Harp would record at Electric Lady Studio under the guidance of Lewis Merenstein. It Makes Me Glad would still have the band’s outstanding pop mentality, but also and finally include an example of the trio’s complex composition abilities born of on-stage improvisation. “David and Goliath,” “I’m Going Home” and Do Lord” collectively is a stunning ten-minute suite, which became known to the fans and band alike as “The Trilogy.”

Shortly after the band wrapped recording in 1972, guitarist Phil Keaggy let it be know that he felt Glass Harp was no longer the right musical environment for him to pursue a deeper understanding of his personal beliefs. The band parted was amicably and the first chapter of Glass Harp would come to an end.

With the release of these original studio albums, as well as Glass Harp’s recent output of music, the dreams of old and new fans alike have been realized, ensuring Glass Harp’s place in rock history. For more about the band and its current touring and recording output, visit www.glassharp.net.

Also included in this collection is “Little Doggie” by Phil Keaggy/Dan Pecchio. The song was to appear on Synergy. It was instead recorded as part of a soundtrack by Glass Harp for a Cleveland TV station documentary about children. The documentary won a local Emmy for best musical soundtrack.

Out of print domestically for three decades, Music Mill Entertainment is proud to reissue all three Glass Harp volumes as a tribute to this pioneering band.
