Roy Harper & Jimmy Page – Hangman
Well I’ve been on a Led Zeppelin related kick over the last few days ahead of this Thursday’s Record Player. Solo stuff by Robert Plant & John Paul Jones has hit the deck and enjoyed but it’ been Jimmy Page’s non-Zeppelin output which has entertained most. None more so than the album he did with Roy Harper back in 1985, Whatever Happened to Jugula?
I was introduced to the album by a chap called Chris Taberham who was to point me in the direction of many a classic over the years. This was the first time I’d come across Roy Harper and it has led to a bit of a strange love affair with his work. Pretty much everything I’ve heard by him I’ve really liked yet this still remains the only LP of his that I own. Something I must really rectify.
