Roy Harper - Lifemask
 
Roy Harper's Lifemask
(14 Oct 2002)
 

'Lifemask' was an emotional if not musical rebirth for Roy Harper, who nearly lost his life in 1972 due to a rare congenital circulatory disorder. When the album was released in early 1973, it showed Harper, with help from Jimmy Page, refining the acoustic music he had perfected on his best ever work, 1971's 'Stormcock'. This CD re-issue is a fantastic addition to any collection. [buy the CD]

     
 
Roy Harper- Valentine
 
Roy Harper's Valentine present
(14 Oct 2002)
 

The CD re-issue of Roy Harper's ''Valentine', which was originally released on that day in 1974, includes a collection of tracks that the Manchester folkster recorded during the early '70s but did not include on either 'Stormcock' or 'Lifemask'. The fact that this album somehow gels is testimony to just how talented Harper was at this point in his career. Jimmy Page also adds guitar. [buy the CD]

     
 
Oldham Tinkers - Sit Thee Down
 
Sit Thee Down with Oldham Tinkers
(26 Aug 2002)
 

The latest CD from The Oldham Tinkers, 'Sit Thee Down', is compiled from 14 songs on the LP entitled 'Sit Thee Down', recorded in 1977 and 4 songs from the LP's Deep Lancashire and Owdham Edge, recorded in 1968 and 1970 respectively'.[buy the CD]

     
 
Roy Harper - Bullinamingvase
 
Roy Harper remains above the Watford Gap
(1 Jul 2002)
 

Roy Harper has reissued the superb rock-oriented album and interestingly titled 'Bullinamingvase' on CD. The controversial track 'Watford Gap', with its lyrics which defame the town and service station of Watford Gap has been included together with 'Breakfast With You', the song which originally replaced it on the 1977 release. The vibrant acoustic guitar work on this Harper-classic is likely to never be surpassed. [buy the CD]
