Stone the Crows was a tough-luck, working class, progressive soul band that came out of
the pubs of Scotland in the early '70s. They had everything going for
them at the start: not one, but two gritty singers, a talented
guitarist, a rhythm section that had played with John Mayall, and the
name recognition of having Led Zeppelin manager Peter Grant as their
producer. Despite favorable reviews by the critics, however, they never
managed to sell their hybridized soul music to a large audience. In
addition, they lost two of their key members early on, one of whom was
tragically electrocuted, and the group broke up after four albums.
Their biggest contribution to rock was the immense vocal talent of one
Maggie Bell. Winner of several Top Girl Singer awards in Britain, Bell
had a raunchy, gutbucket voice that, although it fell short of the naked
emotion and range of Janis Joplin's, came probably closer to her style
than any other female singer. She first attracted notice when she jumped
up on stage at a show in Glasgow to wail with Alex Harvey of the
Sensational Alex Harvey Band. Impressed by her talent (and audacity),
Harvey hooked her up with his guitar-playing younger brother Les, then
fronting a local band called the Kinning Park Ramblers. After playing
army bases in Europe for several years as Power, Bell, Harvey, bassist
Jim Dewar, keyboardist Jon McGinnis, and drummer Colin Allen (who had
played with future bass player Steve Thompson in John Mayall's band),
came to the attention of Peter Grant and they changed their name to
Stone the Crows, which supposedly is a Scottish variation of "the hell
with it."
Both of their first two albums received good reviews upon release, but
sold very meagerly. Then bassist/vocalist Jim Dewar quit the band to
join Robin Trower's fledgling group, to be replaced by the non-singing
Steve Thompson. Shortly after releasing Teenage Licks, guitarist Les
Harvey was electrocuted onstage during a gig at Swansea University. This
appeared to end the band, but they carried on, recruiting young Jimmy
McCulloch from Thunderclap Newman and released "'Ontinuous Performance."
Although the rock press lauded the singing of Bell, her group couldn't
seem to emerge from the shadows and they broke up after this last album,
with McCulloch flying away to join Paul McCartney in Wings.
