Roy Harper - Stormcock
Roy Harper
Stormcock
LP | 1971 | UK | Reissue (Science Friction)
39,99 €*
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.
Roy Harper - Lifemask
Roy Harper
Lifemask
LP | 1973 | UK | Reissue (Science Friction)
46,99 €*
Release:1973 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
“Lifemask” was made at the height of the 'flower power' expression/boom. The songs catalog spontaneous interpretations of how we are interacting with the planet. It was never aimed at mass market and is just a poem for friends and kindred spirits. The poem was inspired by a collage of Geronimo in an eighteenth century English landscape drawing given to Harper by his friend and artist James Edgar whilst he was in the mind altering substances period of his life. Jimmy Page plays throughout. The rest of the album is more conventional in structure, with two songs that are still regularly featured in Harper's live set list. As a live song “Highway Blues” is a different song now than the song David Bowie once tried to record. And “South Africa” is a dream come true. A love song to calm the fears and wash away the horror and stain of apartheid. Some of the songs comprised the soundtrack for the movie “Made” which was on general release at the time in which Harper co-starred with Carol White. 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 1973 and recorded at Abbey Road Studio, this release is housed in a deluxe gatefold gimmick sleeve, opening at the front from the middle sleeve package featuring original artwork with additional printed heavy inner sleeve including extra notes and images.
Roy Harper - Flat Baroque And Berserk
Roy Harper
Flat Baroque And Berserk
LP | 1970 | UK | Reissue (Science Friction)
31,99 €* 39,99 € -20%
Release:1970 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
“Flat Baroque and Berserk” was the first record of Harper's to go into the charts. Peter Jenner was assigned by EMI Records to produce the recording - the two have been good friends ever since. EMI Studios, Abbey Road was at that time the most advanced studio in Europe, and over the next ten years Harper was to record in near-perfect conditions. Over those years, the studio buzzed with four separate Beatles, some Stones, The Pink Floyd, Cliff and the Shadows, Gracie Fields, three of four musical knights, Kate Bush, Olivier Newton-John, The Hollies, Yehudi Menuin, Stefan Grapelli, The Plastic Ono Band, Eric Clapton; you name them, they were all there. It was a creative hotbed where the technical staff, headed by Ken Townsend, were second to none. The song that Harper was best known for in those days, “I Hate the White Man”, was recorded live for this album, and still stands as a testament to my lifelong devotion to espousing equal rights for all humans. Harper has long since wondered about the wisdom of stating that you have the capacity to hate your own race for its misdemeanors, but as a polemic it has been both an effective tool and somewhere of a place for a humble humanitarian to stand. This year marks two important milestones for Roy Harper - his 75th birthday and 50 years of recording music.
