Self-destructive, melancholic, and usually dressed in black, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was the rock star of American literature in the 1830’s and 1840’s.
The rock star of American literature and the RCA recording artists The Glass Prism have a lot in common. With lyrics based on Edgar Allan Poe’s stories and poems, The Glass Prism became the originators of progressive concept based rock in the late 1960’s. Even today teachers continue to use The Glass Prism’s rock album, "Poe Through The Glass Prism," to introduce Edgar Allan Poe. "On Joy And Sorrow - The Glass Prism Story," is the documentary that chronicles their journey and rise to fame.
Their first two albums, "Poe Through The Glass Prism" and "On Joy And Sorrow," have just been released on Banderia Records in Asia. This is another first. The Glass Prism have become the first American rock group to have their original albums re-released in Asia.
Their brand new double album, "Resurrection - Glass Prism - Edgar Allen Poe," is now available on Debra Records. It features brand new arrangements on some classic songs from their earlier recordings. The hit single, "The Raven" and "El Dorado," lead the way. Many new songs inspired by Edgar Allen Poe highlight this latest effort. Also included, is a bonus album, "Shenandoah - Sessions '73." Previously unreleased, this album will surprise everyone.
