It Makes Me Glad (Decca DL 75358) 1972



It Makes Me Glad once again effectively balances the graceful acoustic and heavier rocking sides of Glass Harp. A touch of late-period Beatles can be detected on the opening ‘See Saw’ as well as ‘La De Da’. ‘Colt’ is melodic, upbeat and bright-eyed, while ‘Sea And You’ provides another one of Sferra’s moody shimmering dreamscapes. Keaggy wrote or co-wrote all the songs on side two, including the instrumental ‘David & Goliath’, ‘I’m Going Home’, a hard-rocking arrangement of ‘Do Lord’ (set to new music), the sprightly acoustic ‘Song In The Air’ and the climactic rocker ‘Let’s Live Together’. All instruments, arrangements and vocals by Glass Harp. The back cover is one big photo montage with tons of cut-out pics of the guys. All three of the group’s Decca albums were re-issued on individual CDs by the German Line label in 1993. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

While researching this album I noticed several other more recent albums or CD’s that have been released by this group.     diakoneo

I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Ken for the front cover photo and Discogs for the remaining photos and track list.
