BBC In Concert 1972 is a live album by Barclay James Harvest in concert with the Barclay James Harvest Symphony Orchestra.
In the early 1970s it was a popular idea for progressive rock bands to tour with classical musicals in some form of orchestra to help emphasise the distinction between prog and pop. Unfortunately it was extremely expensive to do and BJH hadn’t reached the level of success to allow them to continue with the experiment for long.
This therefore makes this album a very interesting addition to the live albums by Barclay James Harvest.
It seems that there is an alternative album cover for this recording.
