Roy Harper achieved some acclaim with releases like his debut, Sophisticated Beggar, and Flat Baroque and Berserk, but 1971's Stormcock was his first effort that was a fully realized success. Even though all four long songs on the record were arguably superior in subsequent live versions, this is one of only a handful of Harper's albums that has no weak cuts.

Stormcock ‎(LP, Album, RE, Gat).

Reissued here in smart booklet format, Stormcock is widely regarded as a jewel of the Harper canon, a four-part song cycle featuring his lengthy ruminations on issues such as the lionisation of armed conflict ( One Man Rock AndRoll Band ) and the way organised religion holds humanity hostage to superstition ( The SameOld Rock ).
