Hi - I'm Doug McRoberts, and I was White Light's lead guitarist. I'm now the Church of Scotland minister in Malta... Thought I'd just let you know that "Parable" was a full 12" LP - not a 10" EP - and it was made in a garage, in Paisley, Scotland, on an extremely low budget, but by a bunch of guys whose normal live performance was much bigger and louder than other UK Christian bands of that era, complete with phased lighting, howlround, etc – but the garage gear wasn’t really up to recording it!

White Light were Glasgow-based, but played all over Scotland and northern England, from around 1970-74. The other three guys were my brother Dave on bass (that's his face on the sleeve!), David Murdoch on keyboards, and Alex Smith on drums - and we're not deceased or even technically disbanded; we got together again four years ago, for a live reunion set onstage at a charity rockfest in my last parish, in Keith, which is midway between Inverness and Aberdeen in Northern Scotland. We opened the show with a set that included "Spirit in the Sky", "The Seeker" and "Mighty Big God".

We also took the opportunity to release “Parable” as a (very) limited edition CD – I’m at doug.mcroberts@btinternet.com, if anyone’s interested.
