Barclay James Harvest BBC In Concert 1972

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.

Background Details Of Barclay James Harvest

Back in the 1970s Barclay James Harvest produced some classy music that was on the border between progressive rock and art rock with studio albums including Everyone Is Everybody Else (1974), Time Honoured Ghosts (1975), Octoberon (1976) and Gone to Earth (1977).

Ironically, they even recorded a song called Poor Man’s Moody Blues because that’s who they probably most resemble.

They’ve also produced plenty of live albums including two spin-off groups – John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest and Barclay James Harvest featuring Les Holroyd (Lees was the guitarist and Holroyd the bassist in the original group). Continue reading Best Barclay James Harvest Live Album

Barclay James Harvest Live Tapes 1977

Live Tapes is the second live album from Barclay James Harvest and was released in 1978. It was recorded on the 1976 and 1977 tours.

I’ve got a soft spot for this live album because I nearly went to see BJH on the Octoberon tour. As a schoolboy, money was tight and it was either these guys or Be Bop Deluxe.

I am treating this stage of Barclay James Harvest on the progressive rock / art rock border.
