4 stars There are three Barclay James Harvest: first in Harvest label; second in Polydor label and the last when Wooly (and the mellotrons) left the band in 1978. This album is the first LP but the band was recorded two singles in 1968 and 1969. This album commenced at Abbey Road Studios in 1969 but saw the light of day in 1970. This album contained one epic song: "Dark Now my Sky". Two beatiful ballads: "Mother Dear" and "The Iron Maiden". Two glamour-songs: "Good Love Child" and "Taking Some Time On". And two symphonic pieces: "The Sun Will Never Shine" and "When The World Was Woken" (with orchestral arranged by the Enid men, Rober Goodfrey). The bonus tracks in remastered version show the BJH in 1968-1969 and the bonus tracks are rare examples of the early and naif sound with lots of mellotron. The first album of Barclay James Harvest are one of the best but in your time don't have sucess. Now is the time to discovery the symphonic and melodic sound of the Barclay James Harvest
