Focus

Happy birthday Herb Alpert (A&M Records) (1935) and Thijs Van Leer (Focus) (1948).

I like ‘em both, but you’ll get Focus from me today! I remember seeing them on TV, too – I was *amazed*! I was already heading towards Europe, mostly via Germany. But Focus were a Dutch band I could really get behind – or along with. Thijs van Leer and Jan Akkerman have solo albums, but not going to do those today. Each deserves their own!

Vangelis

Happy birthday Vangelis Papathanassiou (1943)

He must’ve lived in L.A. at some point, perhaps around ’77 or so? I saw him in The Roxy, one evening – at a concert of The Philip Glass Ensemble. Yes, I enjoy his music, despite it’s seeming ‘unpopularity’. “L’Apocalypse Des Animaux” is a very good LP indeed, and after YEARS of hating them, I have finally come around to his RCA Records (notably “Albedo 0.39”), nifty stuff!

Roy Harper (pre-1970)

Happy birthday John Evan (Jethro Tull) (1948)

Because I’ve been listening lately, today I will speak about the first couple Roy Harper records. I do not seem to have ever obtained “Sophisticated Beggar” (Strike label, UK ’67), his debut LP. Understandable, really. Probably by the time I was looking for it initially (’75?), it was unclear WHAT constituted an original UK LP.

For reasons previously stated, I always thought “Come Out Fighting Ghengis Smith” was his Shel Talmy-produced debut LP! Well, it ain’t, isn’t it! I recently read something written by Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull saying really good stuff about the “Ghengis Smith” LP, and I thought, “Hang on, I’ve got that one!” Indeed I do, a MINT-y UK original LP – CBS U.K. always gets a bad rap for their (usually) horrible pressings, but THIS LP is very quiet and my copy looked to be virtually unplayed, and in MINT condition. And good stuff, too. Loved the minimal arrangements; the SFX etc.

So, after “Ghengis Smith”, I proceeded onto “Folkjokeopus”. I distinctly remember meeting Mr. Harper around ’76 or so, shoving my World Pacific US LP of “Folkjokeopus” – and Roy says to me, “What the hell are these songs? I don’t remember them!”. Indeed, the US & UK LP’s are very different! (Duly noted, Sir).

After “Folkjokeopus”, it’s onto “Flat Baroque & Berserk”! I believe Mr. Harper actually confesses to the rock band on “Hell’s Angels” being The Nice, on his website. Hang on a minute there! The US & UK LP’s are DIFFERENT yet again! Mr. Harper wrote “Rubbish” across the liner notes, such as they are…perhaps so! But I like it! US cover says it was released January 1970, so I decide to stop here. So that’s your description of pre-1970 Roy Harper LP’s from me. The short songs were mainly what I was after, but the longer pieces are extraordinary, particularly for when they were recorded!

WAR!

Happy birthday harmonica player Lee Oskar (1948). Today: WAR

Roy Harper

Happy birthday guitarist Peter Banks (1950). I love his first LP / CD, “The Two Sides of Peter Banks”!

As some of you already know, I got sick recently and had to spend 9 freaking days in hospital! Now I have a pacemaker, so the heart is well on it’s way to mending itself.
