Canterbury Glass recorded their only album in 1968. They were immediately offered a deal by Polydor, which they turned down in the hope of securing a better deal with CBS. However, this ploy backfired badly. They were eventually declined by CBS, by which time Polydor had lost interest, and as a result the album went unreleased. Understandably disheartened, the band broke up shortly afterwards.

Four decades later, Malcolm Ironton discovered the master tapes for four of the six original tracks. Together with a early demo recording, these tracks were finally released in 2007 as Sacred Scenes and Characters.
