Glencoe - Glencoe (1972)
The debut album from this British band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of bass, drums, keyboards, guitars and vocals.
The band released two albums with this setup and another album with a totally different lineup before they disbanded. It is only the two first albums which is regarded as proper Glencoe albums. I got both of them and the second one will be reviewed asap too.
The band gives us forty minutes of their music on this album.
Music with the basis of folk rock. But there is also lot's of US country here and British rock. And there is even a piece of symphonic prog added to this album too.
This album has indeed a folky country sound. The mood and sound is also laid-back as there is not much hard rock here.
There is lots of vocal harmonies here and I am getting lots of Crosby, Stills & Nash vibes here. Not at least from the less-is-more guitars and keyboards here.
The songs are decent to good throughout. It is an album with it's small flaws but still comes with bags of charm and class. It is well worth checking out this album.
