The Damnation of Adam Blessing - s/t 1969, "The Second Damnation" 1970

Cleveland acid rock combo The Damnation of Adam Blessing A.K.A. Damnation, was formed in 1968. Often the band would lend support to locals The James Gang, as well as act's such as Janis Joplin, Alice Cooper, Grand Funk, and Eric Clapton to name but a few.
T.DOAB was formed from the remnants of two garage bands: The Society, and Dust (not to be confused with the New York trio Ft. Marc Bell of the same name) who were led by front man Adam Blessing (Bill Constable), and included guitarists Jim Quinn, Bob Kalamasz, bassist Ray Benich, and drummer Bill Schwark. The band eventually signed with United Artists and released their debut self titled album in 1969, which saw the band touring in support of The Faces. The band's second effort; "Second Damnation" followed the next year and 1971's "Which is Justice, Which is the Thief."
The group also released another album under the name Glory (not to beconfused with the San Diego band of the same name and of the era) in 1973 on the U.A. subsidiary Avalanche before disbanding.
