About ‘Barclay James Harvest,’ I can safely say they’ve 2 works to the best progressive rock I have ever heard and are the following: I am presenting today ‘Everyone Is Everybody Else’ and the double live LP called ‘Barclay James Harvest – Live ‘, both published in 1974, a key date for me.
In ‘Everyone Is Everybody Else’, BJH debut on Polydor. I well remember how it got this LP in my hands, I went to a shop specializing in all rock’s types to buy the double LP “Live”. On that day the salesman LP awarded a gift, nothing less than ‘Everyone Is Everybody Else’! It was an excellent day and the music of this LP is round. Excellent arrangements, exquisite Mellotron use (which instrument, Lord). BJH without great voices achieve proper harmony with those features of the Beatles at times.
The songs left in 1st. rise to ‘For no one’, beautiful, I think here all his BJH’s genius. Another I like is ‘See me see you ‘,’ Negative Earth ‘,’ Paper wings’, also of course ‘Child of the universe’.
In fact, any big hits are three or four songs on this album.
Well, well! is the word.
