Roy Harper

‘Me And My Woman’ completes Roy Harper’s breakthrough album Stormcock, released on EMI. 1971 was the year of Led Zeppelin IV, Bowie’s Hunky Dory and Pink Floyd’s Meddle. Despite the high bar, Stormcock stands cheek by jowl with its formidable contemporaries. Harper’s sound manages to be both acoustic and progressive. And as if you needed any more proof than this song, Joanna Newsom and Fleet Foxes have spoken of the influence that the album has had on their work. What’s more, the first part sounds more than a little like Radiohead’s ‘How To Disappear Completely’.
