Roy Harper (Folk Rock)

Roy Harper ‎– Flashes From The Archives Of Oblivion (Harvest SHDW 405) made in UK 1974 gatefold original first pressing 2LP-Set | vinyl: NM (mint-) | cover: VG++ (excellent)

The album's liner notes state the tracks were "recorded at various concerts in England at one time or another". Two of the songs were recorded on Valentine's Day at a concert to mark the release of Harper's 1974 album Valentine. That concert took place at London's Rainbow Theatre where Harper performed alongside Jimmy Page, John Bonham, David Bedford, Max Middleton, Ronnie Lane and Keith Moon.

The initial printing of the album cover caused a strike among female workers at the EMI factory in Hayes when shop stewards found the picture of a naked man in that week's new releases. The naked man is Harper himself, wearing a pair of football socks in the colours of his favourite football team, Manchester City F.C.
