Cleveland acid rock combo the Damnation of Adam Blessing was formed in 1968 from the ashes of a pair of local garage bands,the Society and Dust led by frontman Adam Blessing (Bill Constable),the group also included guitarists Jim Quinn and Bob Kalamasz,bassist Ray Benich, and drummer Bill Schwark.After months of relentless local gigging-often as the opener for hometown heroes the James Gang-the Damnation of Adam Blessing signed to United Artists and issued their self-titled debut LP in 1969,followed by a tour in support of the Faces.Second Damnation followed a year later,generating the minor hit "Back to the River" with their third album,1971's Which Is Justice,Which Is the Thief,Schwark was replaced by Blessing's drummer brother Ken Constable.In 1973,the group renamed itself Glory,releasing a self-titled LP on the UA subsidiary Avalanche before disbanding.The Italian reissue imprint Akarma re-released all of the Damnation of Adam Blessing's albums in the early to mid-2000s as either straight-up re-releases or with additional bonus tracks.The label even released a reissue of the obscure Glory album and offered deluxe vinyl pressings of most of the CDs as well.
