Lonely Tunes: Roy Harper's Man & Myth

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 78% (6 Votes)

Roy Harper’s Man & Myth from September 2013 is an anomaly in the business and is in the same class as Dave Mason’s Future’s Past from 2014: both are the best albums released by seasoned artists who have been in the business for around fifty years. Not bad.  Roy Harper has been around the block, for sure.  Busking aside, his shared career began in 1966 with the aptly named—given his dues—Sophisticated Beggar and continues today with 2013’s Man& Myth.

While most actors would rightfully steer away from reading the phonebook for dramatic effect, Richard Burton did exactly that on The Tonight Show years ago.  Most of us think it worked; Burton managed to make it fairly dramatic, as dramatic as the white pages can probably be.

Kaiser Chiefs may have been cursed with the early success of their first release in 2005, Employment, in that all subsequent releases are judged against that successful debut.  Education, Education, Education & War, released in  March 2014 and the first of their albums not to feature all the original members, may have more than comparison to Employment to hinder its success with listeners.
