Bay City Rollers  1992  Dedication: Japan

Dedication is a rock album by THE BAY CITY ROLLERS, issued in fall 1976. It was the band's fourth original studio album, and the first new album to be released in the wake of their enormous worldwide success of early 1976. Founding group member ALAN LONGMUIR had been replaced by IAN MITCHELL prior to the recording sessions. Upon the switch, Mitchell was slotted as rhythm guitarist; STUART WOOD moved from rhythm guitar to bass. Mitchell also provided the lead vocal for the title track. However, when he left the band later that year, a version of Dedication featuring a LES McKEOWN vocal was cut for subsequent pressings of the LP and was in fact released as a single.
