"Stained Glass" career was pretty short, but left behind two rather pleasant albums. Quite often it is called "Christian rock", because it is confused with contemporary Christian act with the same name (of Musical Refuge Productions).
"Stained Glass" was well accomplished and intelligent trio from San Jose, California - Jim McPherson (bass guitar & vocals), Tom Bryant (lead guitar) and Dennic Carriasco (drums). The music had nothing to do with hard-rock power trios, which became later "en vogue" in USA, neither with regular West Coast psychedelia. It is a bit melancholic, melodic and mild psych with some tendency towards electrified folk. Perhaps it is not so innovative musically, but well produced and competent.
The "Glass" played "Beatles" covers (who didn't?) back in 1966, and even managed to get signed by RCA, and release few singles (available as bonus tracks on CD reissue of the first album). Later on the act was signed by "Capitol" and in 1968 released their first eponymous folkish-country effort - Crazy Horse Roads, not a bad album,neither disturbing, but the best thing about it is its shocking cover.
"Aurora" was their second (1969) and last album, maybe not the most impressive step in psychedelia, but again it was well done. In that case the creativity was all music, and the artwork is shining with the lack of imagination. Regretfully, all that was not enough, and it flopped. In the land and times of plenty there were too many on the offer, and mild "Stained Glass" couldn't compete.
Jim McPherson, however, managed to record and issue solo album, and in 1971 together with John Cipollina (of Quick Messenger Service fame) formed uninspiring "Copperhead" (COPPERHEAD, strictly speaking even less interesting than "Stained Glass"

Put out on the extinct Radioactive label this was maybe one of that label's better choice of output.The trio, formed in 1966, called it a day in Nov.1969, after neither of their two albums made any great impact, which is a pity really, because this one offered a fair variety of songs, quite imaginative in places along with a decent quality of musicianship.
Although they were a California group they don't in any way portray the West Coast sound. Indeed their music has strong hints of folk, blues and mild psychedelia, and I find it all to be helped along by a degree of very tasty drumming.
Some of the songs can't help but bring a smile to one's face, for example the opening cut, altho' bluesy and with nice vocal harmony & some very soothing organ is really about ANY couple who are finding it hard to get on, something that will strike a note with most folk.
The third song on Side 1 "A Common Thief" is a song about someone who has a problem with work (so what's new ?) and the narrative actually mentions the "transplant surgeon" (quite up to date in 1969) who goes ahead and gives the work shy youth a snake's brain. Imaginative to say the least.
"The Kibitzer" is the CDs real rocker with plenty of fuzz and searing guitar, a recipe repeated on "Sweetest Thing".
However the most pyschedelic offering is saved till the end, and maybe it is the title matter that gives some clue as to why this should "The Necromancer".
Sanwiched between all this we're even treated to a song about the Incas and their delight in human sacrifice, as well as the pleadings of a distraught father with his wayward child, who tells him, even if you go to the moon I'm still your dad !
And who was Jim Dandy ? The lead singer of Black Oak Arkansa for sure, but who else ?
Not a bad listen overall.

san jose's best's second best album 21 July 2005
By jaybo - Published on
Format: Audio CD
this classic pop/psych lp finally gets a nice cd release with the original cover art intact. this band's sound falls somewhere between the buffalo springfield and cream on this long olayer, while their first release CRAZY HORSE ROADS is more beatlesque and a 5 star record for sure. the band is not from england, but san jose, california

good rock and roll music 25 Aug. 2006
By Galen Helms - Published on
Format: Audio CD
How come Moby Grape gets all the attention for being the band that could have been? Stained Glass is pretty sweet too! This album has a lot of good songs. They're sound is laid back yet most of their songs have a certain drive to them and are well played, if not impeccably. There are some nice vocal arrangements on the first few songs, and although some of the effects (Inca Treasure) sound a little dated, they're kinda cool and the music is good.

Great Bay Area band 25 April 2007
By David Grenz - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I think Crazy Horse Roads is the better of the 2 CD's but this one is pretty good too. Some of the songs are a little late 60's but sometimes I'm in the mood for that. Great 3 piece band from the south bay.

Grooving tunes from 1969 20 Nov. 2008
By Andrew C. Madden - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Never ever heard of them, despite having been born in the same year, but that has never ever stopped me from listening to new (and old)things. And this is a real classic psychedelic treasure from the 60's! Cool well played grooving tunes mellowed out to the ethereal bonfire smoke that drifts across hazy landscapes of your dreams.

It is the second of the two albums recorded for Capitol in the 1960s. It is often regarded by some as the better but as I've not heard the first offering I cannot say. This final Stained Glass Release has a somewhat stoned smoky, more impro jamming feel that I really dig. I would highly recommended to any psychedelic fan.

The guitar work is superb, the drums and percussion are first rate. The singing is mostly top notch occassionally let down now and again by being weak. I really like it. Get it while you can!!!!
Mild and mellow psychedelia 30 Mar. 2011
By Golovanov Alexey - Published on
Format: Audio CD
"Stained Glass" was short-lived pleasant psych trio from San Jose - Jim McPherson (bass & vocals), Tom Bruant (lead) and Dennis Carriasco (drums), whose origins are dating back to 1966, when they played The Beatles (who didn't?) It has nothing to do with power-trios which were very much "en vogue" later on, neither with Christian rock - San Jose trio is simply confused with contemporary Christian band of the same name signed by Musical Refuge Productions. They do not sound as typical West Coast product either.
"Stained Glass" managed to get signed by RCA, and even to release few singles (abvailable as bonus tracks on this CD). They switched to Capitol, and in 1968 recorded their first eponymous folkish-country effort (Crazy Horse Roads. The best thing about this album is the artwork, while on the second, one which followed in 1969, the cover is the worst thing about it. It's rather mellow, mild and melodic psychedelia drifting towards electrified folk, and not disturbing at all. No wonder that in 1969, when more loud and proud bands were plenty, both albums tanked dragging the band with them.
Jim McPherson however survived to release solo album Promise Kept, and to form uninspiring "Copperhead" (Copperhead) together with John Cipollina of "Quick Messenger Service" fame.
This re-issue is a decent bootleg by "Radioactive", not a must for everyone, but a welcome purchase for an addict of the genre.
