This review is from: Songs of Love and Loss (Audio CD)If you have not got anything by Roy Harper then this is a great place to start as these songs are some of his most accessible. The thing about RH is that he sets himself incredibly high standards and every song he has ever issued exudes thoughtfulness and honesty. In my opinion he is the single most consistent performer of anyone I have ever listened to. Dylan, Young, Mitchell, Van M., both Buckleys, John Martyn etc etc have all got fantastic canons of music, but they have all hit the occasional bad note. Not so RH.
Now in his 70th year we should treasure him, and if you ever get to see him live (maybe his touring days are over?) then please DO. He is a fascinating character and makes you proud to be English. Worth a visit to the blog on his website too.
There is unlikely to ever be anyone remotely like him.
