The Real Roy Harper

Picked-up this YouTube link to 1984 Stonehenge Free Festival set from Roy. (Just “One Man Rock & Roll Band” at that link now.)

Can’t believe this is as late as ’84, but it so reminds me of his performance delivery during mid to late ’70’s – Essex Uni, LSE, Hammersmith, Blackbushe, to name a few – particularly excellent version of Highway Blues to finish.

[Post Note – As is ever the way on YouTube, I followed additional links to further live Roy Harper videos, and given the Stonehenge ’84 connection I disappeared off down the rabbit hole that is Hawkwind – ending with the BBC Documentary from 2009-ish. The original Westway / Ladbroke Grove punks.]

[Post Note – and reminiscing with the above Stonehenge link I find also on YouTube this recording of Roy from 2016 at De Barras in Clonakilty with Mike Shanley doing a full original-style version of “Me and My Woman”.]
