This 1974 single was the only thing the public got to hear from Eela Craig in between their self-entitled 1971 debut and 1976's One Niter. This is a privately issued single and appears to be just as difficult to get a hold of as their debut album. The blues and jazz influence of their debut had gone in place of a Mellotron-heavy symphonic prog style. Strangely Harald Zuschrader is not even present on the album, but this was the album that brought in guitarist and vocalist Fritz Riedelberger and keyboardist Hubert Schnauer (who also played flute). If you own Hats of Glass you'll find these two songs very familiar. "Stories" was remade in 1978 as the final part of the title track of Hats of Glass (called "Grover's Mill if you own the Symphonic Rock CD). This one is loaded with Mellotron instead of string synths, and the lyrics are different. Then you get the original version of "Cheese", this one starts off very similar, but then there's a vocal section with both Fritz Riedelberger and Huberty Bognermayr which you don't find on the the entirely instrumental version off Hats of Glass. When hearing Hats of Glass, as excellent as that album was, you can tell the band must have had some creative writer's block in 1977 (album was recorded late in 1977), the fact they're redoing material they did in 1974, and also covering a Chris de Burgh song, "A Spaceman Came Travelling". Chances are you won't be able to find the original single any more than you would original LPs of their debut, but at least you can get these as bonus tracks on the Garden of Delights CD reissue as well as the LP reissue of their debut on Amber Soundroom.
