The Very Best of Harvest Records

In his song "Refugees," Peter Hammill sang, "We were at peace, and we cheered." Well, not only did the young people "cheer," but they made wonderful music, music that was progressive and album-oriented. As always, "Mr. Suit" wanted in on this new and very hip market. EMI created the Harvest Label in 1969, with its lovely yellow and green lava lamp logo and oddball cover art. The music, which ranged from serious folk to Pink Floyd space rock, is highly collectible today. And these records still remind the world that, indeed, in the words of Pete Brown, "Things May Come and Things May Go, But the Art School Dance Goes On Forever."

Wow! This is quite a list! There is so much to explore! You know that I need more music to listen to! ;-) I especially agree with the Soft Machine albums "Bundles" and "Softs" as well as the Fourth Way! Harvest is such a wild label!

By the way, I only own seven of these albums, all in the original vinyl!
