Child Of The Universe - The Essential Collection: BJH
on 19 November 2013
I have all the albums featured on the first CD and typically my best of choice is completely different. Best of selections actually pick the worst tracks in my opinion. The music is of such a good quality though that I still enjoyed listening to the tracks chosen on CD1. CD 2 was really a disappointment but I reckon that was because BJH's style of music had changed in the latter part of their career. The music on this collection was nowhere as good as their music from the 1969 - 1970's period. John Lees's Barclay James Harvest album North, now that is a good album. Artists change over time, instruments too but John Lees's album North has revived my following of BHJ. I look forward to the release of Les Holroyd's Barclay James Harvest due out soon according to liner notes.
