First released in 1977, this album was recorded by Roy at home in Hereford. He borrowed gear and people from EMI's Abbey Road studio to help with the project. The major event of the record is 'One Of Those Days In England' which is a collection of reminiscences. The track was split into 2 tracks part one and parts 2 - 10 because of its length. The album features a host of stars including Ronnie Lane who came in for a day to help out and members of Wings.
Top Customer Reviews
Incisive lyrics, melodies to die for and on this album musical arrangements of outstanding quality.
The title track is a mighty,mighty song of epic proportions, which overshadows what was side 1 of the original vinyl. But don't overlook these songs, Cherishing the Lonesome is beautiful, Naked Flame is achingly heartbreaking,These Days an excellent validation of bewilderment. Watford Gap cuts the crap with it's plate of grease.
Buy it, be overwhelmed by it's majesty and quality
I would also like to thank a little record shop in Faversham for introducing me to Roy Harper,
Martin from Amsterdam, Holland
Roy can't quite subdue himself for an entire album and throws in "Watford Gap" a disparingingly humorous view of the famous motorway services.
Like all Roy Harper's material all his albums have a unique quality and this one is certainly no exception and should be in every Roy Harper admirers collection.
He finished the set with the 20 minute long "One of these days in England" (pts 2-10), still my favourite Harper track. Its a varying piece which seemlessly matches Roy's acoustic guitar to an instrumental background, whilst going through varying melodies and changes in tempo. It would not be unjust to compare it to the long medley that finishes the Beatles "Abbey Road".
This is a different style of album to Roy's early folk/acoustic/protest song set, of which Flat Baroque and Berserk is the classic. However, give this one a listen - you won't be disappointed.

Not the best of his albums and I feel that he looses his way a little with the rather over indulgent 'One of Those Day's. Read morePublished on 28 Nov. 2013 by Mr Randolph Turner
Loved this album but found the download system problematic. I am pretty computer literate but didnt find it easy to download and couldnt get it into Itunes on my macbook. . Read morePublished on 8 May 2013 by Sally Proctor
couldnt give it 5 star rating as the download had a glitch towards the end but would recommend to friendsPublished on 16 April 2013 by Debbie Davies
A Classic. Worth a purchase alone for the 'One of those days in England' suite.
If you got have some Harper, along with Stormcock this is a must.
