Product description

Product Description

"Taking Some Time On: The Parlophone-Harvest Years (1968-73)" is the most comprehensive collection of the songs Barclay James Harvest recorded for EMI, featuring many of BJH's best loved songs, including the single "Mocking Bird", the epic "She Said", "I'm Over You", "Child Of Man" and "Medicine Man".

Originally formed by John Lees (vocals and guitar), Stuart "Woolly" Wolstenholme (vocals, keyboards and guitar), Les Holroyd (vocals and bass) and Mel Pritchard (drums) in 1967, in the Oldham area of North West of England, the group fused pop and rock with more experimental, classical themes, making BJH very much at the vanguard of the burgeoning progressive rock scene of the late 1960s. In June 1969, Barclay James Harvest's releases switched to EMI's newly formed progressive rock imprint Harvest, with the release of the "Brother Thrush" 45, joining a roster that boasted Pink Floyd, Deep Purple and the Edgar Broughton Band. Over two short, but prolific years, BJH recorded four albums for Harvest; from the self-explanatory "Their First Album" (1970), "Once Again" (1971), "And Other Stories" (1971) and "Baby James Harvest" (1972), all included in this release. Each album is augmented by rare bonus tracks, demos, non-LP singles and b-sides, album outtakes and BBC live sessions, including three previously unreleased tracks recorded for Bob Harris's radio show recorded in October 1972. Also featured are the two tracks, "Breathless" and "When The City Sleeps" that were released as a single under the pseudonymous band name "Bombadil".

Review

"For those who aren't completists but want the definitive overview of the pre-1974 period, this 69-song set does the business. All the non-album single sides are included, along with the long players."
-- Record Collector - August 2011 - ****

"This collection essentially collates into a five-disc set the band's first four albums, but with a host of extras including singles, B-sides, numerous BBC sessions and alternative versions. If you adored their earlier albums before their commercial peak in the late 70's, then this will be damn near essential." -- Classic rock present Prog! magazine - October 2011
