29,99 €*
Release:1971 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
“Stormcock” was born in 1969 as Harper began to stretch his wings. He'd been there a few times before, but this time he gave himself the space to go deep and stay there. "Hors D'Oeuvres" is perhaps the lightweight in the collection, but after all, it's the starter... “The Same Old Rock” records Harper's opposition to continued dependence on the cheap opium of convenient mass religion. This year marks two important milestones for Roy Harper - his 75th birthday and 50 years of recording music. To celebrate, Roy will be performing four special concerts in September and releasing the first vinyl reissues of his classic albums, none of which have been available on vinyl for well over 20 years.This limited edition was completely remastered and reissued on 12” 180gm vinyl. Originally released 1971 and recorded at Abbey Road Studio, this release is housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve featuring original artwork with additional printed heavy inner sleeve including extra notes and images.

"Bullinamingvase (a wordplay on "Bull in a Ming vase") is the ninth studio album by English folk / rock singer-songwriter and guitarist Roy Harper. It was first released in 1977 by Harvest Records. In the United States the album was released as One Of Those Days In England.The album features a mix of musicians and instruments, including the Vauld Symphony Orchestra (named after the Marden, Herefordshire farm Harper owned and recorded in at the time). The CD release (Science Friction HUCD021) has been remastered with SNS 20-bit digital supermapping.One of the album's highlights is the epic, 19 minute, "One Of Those Days In England (Parts 2–10)" (originally side 2 of the album). Comprising several musical movements, the song is a collection of reminiscences from both a personal and cultural perspective. Harper sings of "Britannica and all those who sail in her, especially those with Albions cultural heritage claws...", and refers to the Alfred Jewel."Naked Flame" is modelled on the traditional Lady Franklin's Lament, in much the same way as Bob Dylan's Dream (from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan) used the same source.
