Consumer Guide Reviews:

Glitter [Bell, 1972]
The hit--"Rock & Roll, Part II"--is reputed to be reggae, but I don't understand why, unless reggae has been reduced to a catchall for anything with a simple beat. As for the album, it's easy to categorize--unreconstructed rock and roll revivalism of the most reactionary sort. Dumb. C
