Roy is the one person who has consistently recorded epic songs with great poetic lyrics and social content. Nobody else comes near. In my opinion he is the greatest songwriter Britain has produced.
Here are my choice of his ten best songs.
The Lord’s Prayer
An epic poem/song spanning the whole of human history.
Me and My Woman
Another epic tale of the struggle living in a society like this and the healing strength of a relationship.
One of my favourites from the very early days when he used to rage this out with passion.
How Does It Feel?
I think I prefer this to Whiteman.
One Of Those Days in England
An epic song about England the like of which only Roy can do.
A vitriolic diatribe against society and the hypocrisy and the game we live in
The atmosphere on this song is great.
I Hate the Whiteman
A fierce song about the terror of Western society
A beautiful love song
When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease
A song about death.
I often like my music strong and deep. Roy hits the mark for me.
Roy Harper book out later this year!
