Barclay James Harvest live and with orchestra (conducted by Martyn Ford) in the BBC studios sometime in 1972.........and what better track to begin with than: "Mocking bird" a grandiose...nay.. sublime track ..which at the time elevated them to their well earned status.....a high profile light prog outfit (repeat that sentence after a few pints..ha..ha) I have always thought that Moody´s and Barclay J H...were kind of sugar and honey pop-prog.....but time eventually caught up with me....well at least concerning BJH. As the Moody´s NEVER said anything to me...sorry guys (and fans of the Moody´s) This is a wonderful document of a time forever gone!! I do not recall anything I was doing back then in 1972...but I was probably roaming through 2´hand record stores...trying to find prog/psych records that looked interesting...or better yet.....sitting in my small room trying to figure out.. the fine art of tuning your guitar !! Back to reality...this record is a document..and a beautiful one it is, at that!! Barclay James Harvest always had that boy- ísh sound....and id have to admit that it is a wonderful record...for what its worth... it is beautiful pop/ prog ...well written songs...dare i say..well constructed songs....and here with symphony orchestra.....you cant beat that!! As I said... wonderful music...beautifully executed.......not essential (BJH fans excluded)...but still a sweet...beautiful....soft... prog / pop record.....for when your girl (or boy) friend needs comforting. BJH were never a "watch out for this solo" band....but hey they worked together... and that is a real quality in itself...dont you think !!??
