From the Artist

I have it on confirmed rumor that a record shop in Minneapolis was named after my third record, 'Folkjokeopus'. The record features the epic 'McGoohans Blues', inspired by actor Patrick McGoohan's depiction of the establishment rebel in his TV series, 'The Prisoner'. I am currently engaged with Opher Godwin in compounding the compleat Roy Harper, which at the time of writing has run to four volumes. The first of these will be released some time this century.

Also included on the record are 'Exercising Some Control' and 'Manana', two irreverent pieces of comedy, the lung busting 'She's The One', and 'One For All', dedicated to tenor saxist Albert Ayler, who I knew and loved during my time in Copenhagen. Sadly he was later found washed up on the bank of the Hudson in New York. He would have been one of the leading jazzmen of the age.

Finally the record is rounded off with two pieces of mystery and the opening 'Sgt. Sunshine', on which I was ably accompanied by the beautiful Jane Scrivener'.

Bought this, played it today (it's still on), first time for, oh, 35 years? How did I forget how good he is? OK, there's roughness and what not, which I leave to others to point out, but it's vivid and full of life and hilarious and it grabs you from the off, and makes most things since 1969 sound half-hearted and mean-spirited. McGoogan's Blues is a work of genius, She's the One makes your hair stand on end, whatever RH thinks about it now. Exercising Some Control I've been singing in my head for 40 years. Yes, I discovered that I remembered every word: that's what being old is like, folks. Why so long? I suppose I must have thought it couldn't be as good as I remembered, but it was. One of the great pleasures of being old is rediscovering that it was. 'Maybe we'll all goof again someday...' OK by me. Great to be back.

Had this when it first came out but hadn't heard it for years. It's worn surprisingly well imo. The album is built around the very long but always interesting McGoohan's Blues, however Sergeant Sunshine and Exercising Some Control are minor classics as well. One or two tracks just sound strange now but on the whole I am glad I shelled out a relatively high amount to revisit a bit of my youth.

A quirky,complex,funny,emotional (occasionally) CD from a master musician, overlooked by lots of people but recognised for his brilliance by the likes of Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

Used to listen to this for hours in the 70's, (as far as I am able to remember through the haze).

Hats off to Harper.
