Roy Harper: The Dream Society

Colin Harper, MOJO, July 1998

THE SOPHISTICATED BEGGAR, the Valentine, the Loony On The Bus... Roy Harper has worn these and other Lifemasks for more than 30 years now and with this new, remarkable instalment the real Roy stands up. Not in one easy motion, of course – this is the first part of a two-volume autobiographical song cycle.
