Mea Semper Vivet Gloria....................


The first Long player from Gloria was released in 1969 and was a very special record immediately. Not only for the music but also for the cover.
The cover is made of special black paper with golden letters on it.

All the big hits of that time are on the record. On this record the group performed  an excellent piece of music with different kind of music styles.

Beside the hits, other beautiful numbers are:  "Still Searching For Love", "Summer Rain", en in Stereo “Wild Bird”.
(The Single version was recorded in Mono)

This long player is also released in other countries, below you see releases
from Germany and
If you look at the German release you will see that on the record label is
written “Robert Long and the Unit Gloria". It’s funny because during
that time the group was named  “Gloria” in the Netherlands

If you read the information at the back of the record cover you will
understand how good this group was.

Because of that I wrote this slogan:
(Unit) Gloria, The most under valued popgroup of the Netherlands.

The record is now available on CD and you order it at
