Now that takes me back... I discovered Roy Harper through Page, Gilmour and lots of other famous fans, and later on went to some lovely small club gigs, I guess in the mid to late 80s. "Whatever happened to Jugula" was an album of my formative years that I have never really been back to, but helped me to understand how to serve a song rather than my own guitar playing interests. Thinking back over the timing, it must have been cathartic for Page to get back to his roots after one of the foundations of his adult life and career had been ripped out from under him. I loved what they did over the years, and never knew they revisited it.
I still remember after the "interval" at one gig (Harper didn't have support acts that I remember), wanders back onto stage and says, "I'm not saying that was good, but if I die tonight, roll me up and smoke me." It was a different time, seems like it could have been hundreds of years ago, and is maybe a cliche, but fond memories!
Thanks for sharing!
