2 stars Roy Harper always had moments of pure grandeur and other times inconsistency. For me 'Bullnamingvase' is one such album. The album opens with the very English "One of Those days in England" (part one I guess!) which canters along at a medium pace, overall a pleasant enough track but nothing earth shattering. The follow up song is beautiful "These Last Days" as is the concise "Naked Flame". The album ends with the 19 minute continuance of "One of Those days..." with Harper's poetical lust in abundance. Noteworthy contributions from Alvin Lee of Ten Years After fame on guitar and a certain Paul McCartney. I would recommend this for collectors only with 2 and a half stars.
