BJH Barclay James Harvest Limited Deluxe boxset
A deluxe 4 disc limited edition boxed set edition of BJH’s charming 1970 debut album.
 
BJH successfully fused orchestra and Rock band to create a unique pastoral form of Symphonic Progressive Rock. Produced by Norman Smith (Pink Floyd), the album was dominated by the epic Dark Now My Sky, but also featured BJH classics such as The Iron Maiden, Mother Dear, When the World Was Woken and Taking Some Time On. 
 
This expanded reissue has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and features many bonus tracks, 2018 5.1 surround sound and stereo mixes (from the original multi-track master tapes), BBC radio sessions from 1968 and 1971, a rare Woolly Wolstenholme solo demo from 1969, the 1968 short film Mr. Sunshine, and more.
 
The set also includes a lavishly illustrated 68 page book with previously unseen photographs and an essay by BJH specialists Keith and Monika Domone.
 
Additionally, the box includes a facsimile of the 1970 Barclay James Harvest 'orchestral tour’ programme, two facsimile press releases from 1968 and 1969, postcards and a replica 1968 record shop poster for the Early Morning single.
