These albums, which are in a progressive/psychedelic style with lots of heavy guitar, are beginning to interest some collectors. The outfit formed in Youngstown, Ohio in the late sixties and were among the State's prime flag bearers of the British invasion. @

They recorded an unreleased acetate-album before going on to sign for Decca. Only ten copies of the acetate were made, which contained both sides of the United Audio 45 plus I've Just Begun, a typical slice of Zombies' - influenced pop and six other tracks. One copy of the acetate was sent to Apple Records in the hope of getting a contract, but it was rejected. The bass player on these United Audio recordings was Steve Markulin, a cousin of Joe "Ting" Markulin, The Human Beinz rhythm guitarist. Dann Pecchio joined later and he is featured on all the Decca recordings.
Phil Keaggy had earlier played in The Squires, Volume IV and New Hudson Exit.
Both tracks on their first 45 Where Did My World Come From/She Told Me were written by Phil Keaggy who also produced several records for Ohio area garage bands and later achieved success in the Christian music movement.
One track from the United Audio acetate, I've Just Begun has subsequently re-surfaced on Pebbles, Vol. 21 (LP).

While we certainly appreciate the interest, we'd also like to point out that Glass Harp is alive and well, and sell this album (along with all other studio albums and several live albums) at http://www.glassharp.net. With no real ongoing label contract or distribution agreement, selling our music as independent artists really does contribute to our actual livelihood. While we can see some merits to file sharing, we would hope that our true fans might realize/respect the fact that real people lose out sometimes when music is thrown out on the web for the taking.
