Product Description

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.

What do you expect from Roy Harper?
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

This album is one of my 5 favourite desert island discs. In 1977 I was on holiday in Faversham, Kent, and I was intrigued by the cover and the title of this album and I bought it right there and then. I was completely blown away ! Side one with 5 shorter songs like 'one of those days in england' (which nearly was a hit in Holland), 'naked flame', 'these last days' is close to perfection !! But nothing can prepare you for side two with the epic 'One of those days in England (parts 2-10)' which sums up the best of Roy his career until then !! I never did understood why Roy didn't become a 'big star' after this album, maybe it had something to do with the fact that it was released in 1977, the year of punkrock !! From then on I bought every Roy Harper album before and after 1977 and I was never disappointed !! Thank you Roy !
I would also like to thank a little record shop in Faversham for introducing me to Roy Harper,

Album starts with "One of those days in England" soft melodies unlike some of Roy's earlier albums which can at times sound disjointed. This track sets the atmosphere for the album as there are no songs the like of "I hate the White Man" or "Highway Blues".
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.

This is Roy at the very peak of his writing abilities. An album of beautifully crafted songs the like of which no other artist has ever achieved. Roy is unique. A trio of beautiful songs on side one with These last days, Cherishing the lonesome and the naked flame charting the currents of love's vagaries followed by the rollicking Watford Gap which got him sued. But it was side two that really reaches the heights. One of those days in England is another of those epic performances with its sweeping canvas that only Roy can do. It is bedded in England and its history, Roy's life and the whole bloody universe. It's another of Roy's songs to get lost in and wallow as your mind grapples with the imagery and imagination of a poet with a broad brush and rapier thrust. If you're lookng or something more meaningful than anything coming out of the present day scene coupled to something more musical and transporting - then this is your album. Another work of genius from Roy. Another brilliant and thought provoking work of art. What more could you ask - an absolute classic!

I had this on vinyl over 30 years ago and lost it along the way with the rest of my vinyl collection. I'm listening to it now for the first time since and it's like finding an old friend again. It's not so often mentioned as much as the others but Bullinamingvase is one of Roy Harpers best albums, if you are a fan to any degree, you should get this.

I first saw Roy Harper in a student hall in Edinburgh in the mid 1980s. In contrast to other "performers" of the time who seemed to believe that turning up the volume on the amplifiers and gaudy stage displays (a la Spinal Tap) was all that mattered, Roy turned up with a simple chair, two guitars and a small amplifier. For the next 2 hours the whole place was spellbound.
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.
