Roy Harper – Me and my Woman – One of the best tracks ever recorded. A song of idealism.

Another brilliant Harper epic!

This song starts with the opening line – ‘I never know what kind of day it is on my battlefield of ideals. But the way she touches and the way it feels must be just how it heals’ – which seems to sum up how I feel most days. This is one of those epic tracks that covers a wealth of ideas, has a tremendous range and is at once thought provoking, compelling and a masterpiece of both lyrical and musical design. It is mesmerising and haunting.

I was fortunate enough to be in the studio when this album was recorded and it was a magical experience. There is no doubt in my mind that Stormcock is one of the best albums ever recorded. It is a great shame that it doesn’t get the recognition it deserves.

Give it a listen and marvel…
