London 1974 [no label, 1CD]

John Peel Top Gear Session, London, UK; March 11, 1974. Very good FM broadcast.

Folk singer Roy Harper has been making music since 1964. His albums (all 32 of them, including 10 live recordings) include 1966’s Sophisticated Beggar, 1974’s Lifemask and 2005’s Beyond the Door. That same year, Harper was awarded the MOJO Hero Award and in 2013 was the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Harper may well be rock’s least well-known legend. The only non-band member to have sung a lead vocal on a Pink Floyd song (Have A Cigar from Wish You Were Here), he is also the subject of a Led Zeppelin song (Hats Off To (Roy) Harper). David Gilmour, Paul And Linda McCartney and Kate Bush have guested on his albums and Bush, Peter Gabriel and This Mortal Coil have covered his songs.

  7. Thanks for the wonderful upload of a great but often neglected artist. Too Many Movies remains my all-time favorite song done by Roy. Check out his Flashes from the Archives of Oblivion album which stills sounds relevant and great today, not to mention that it is a live double album!
