Barclay James Harvest: Reissues
Three-disc remasters of BJH’s 70s salvage.
In 1977, Barclay James Harvest’s Gone To Earth (5/10) began a three-years-plus, million-selling run on the German album chart. It’s still one of the most durable hits in that country’s history. Hearing this extended edition with an extra mix and bonus tracks, you can sort of see why: it takes all the soft-rock tropes of the era and stirs them into a big, effective soup of epic gestures and sentimentality.
