The early Harvest of green and yellow:.

R. J. Heath "djaitch"
 
First Base / Amar Caballero
First Base / Amar Caballero
"First Base has  mixed ingredients for early English hardrock: the ballsy vocals of Jenny Hann (later a Memorex voice) Spaghetti Western music - and a dash of Zappa"

"Recorded before EBB went agi-prop (predating New Model Army) and becoming  regulars at Glastonbury. Gothic before their time, the English Beefheart without so many quirks."
Joy Of A Toy

"The direct successor of the first Soft Machine album: whimsical post-psychedelic British rock. Machine as the unofficial Harvest 'house band' provided a lot of the backing."
Concerto For Group And Orchestra

"Deep Purple as prog rockers. Jon Lord showing he could do as well as Keith Emerson with an orchestra (and an arranger) -  works for the most part."

"A late  recording as this list goes. Has the essence of many Harvest's records: the  mixing of musician from different bands to generate different new  music, (ie.Edgar Broughton, Sharks, Krimson)."
Ummagumma

"The first Harvest double? The musical crossroads between Barrett's Floyd and the future Floyd."

"The other half of  Cream's main writing team, doing his own thing. Rough around edges adding to the record's warped charm: the deconstruction of Politician has to heard to be believed."
Quatermass

"Memorable for its gate fold sleeve, memorable for the group members who went to bigger and better things. Largely innovative music."
The Madcap Laughs / Barrett

"The mapcap artist disintegrating before your ears. (The Machine, as the label's ' house band', can be  fleetingly heard)."
Once Again

"(I suppose they have to be included?) BJH may have lent their name to the label, but with the exception of a few tracks found on this album, they never got out of the 2nd Division of prog rockers."

"The double US Bluethumb recording by Love, no British label would handle - until Harvest stepped in. No quite as classic as the first 4 Elektra releases, still relevant in Love's discography."
