  • Barclay James Harvest Biography
    Germany Even in Britain where success had proved harder to sustain the LP reached No 15 and revitalised interest in the band Two albums in quick succession Ring Of Changes and Victims Of Circumstance again clocked up telephone number sales and brought a new generation of fans to the 1984 tour particularly in France but many older followers felt that Pip Williams lush commercial production swamped BJH s individuality and subtlety A long lay off followed while they considered their future direction fuelling rumours that they had decided to call it a day Much to the delight of the faithful the silence was broken at the end of 1986 with the single He Said Love followed by an album early in 1987 Face To Face marked a return to the traditional BJH sound and this was confirmed on another massive tour of Britain and Europe including several festivals One of these took place in East Berlin s Treptower Park on July 14th 1987 in front of an estimated 170 000 fans the first time that a western rock band had performed an open air concert in what was then East Germany a live recording was released as the album and video Glasnost in 1988 BJH then retreated to their homes in Saddleworth to write new material and prepare to bring their music into the Nineties The result was Welcome To The Show issued in March 1990 Produced by Jon Astley and Andy MacPherson the album incorporated the classic BJH trademarks of memorable songs and beautiful harmonies within a melodic rock framework but brought them up to date with state of the art digital recording and intelligent production 1992 saw the band embark on a 25th Anniversary Tour of Britain and Europe which coincided with the UK release of The Best Of Barclay James Harvest a slightly different version of which had already gone gold in Germany The next studio effort 1993 s Caught In The Light was a very low key affair which was not well received by the record company although many fans loved it and with little promotion the album sold poorly leading to BJH being dropped by Polydor UK Things went from bad to worse in 1994 as a long running court action brought against the band by former arranger Robert Godfrey threatened to destroy them However the court actions were dismissed in March 1995 following which the band began writing new songs and in April 1996 a new record contract was agreed with Polydor in Germany The result was a brand new studio set River Of Dreams which was released in May 1997 in Germany and Switzerland only and was followed up by a tour of those countries In March 1998 it was announced that the band would be taking a sabbatical in effect marking the end of the original Barclay James Harvest and that the members of the band would be pursuing solo projects For his album John worked with Woolly for the first time in twenty years plus bassist Craig Fletcher and drummer Kevin Whitehead under the name Barclay James Harvest Through The Eyes Of John Lees This line up recorded an album of half new songs half re recordings of BJH classics entitled Nexus which was released by Eagle Records in February 1999 A tour of Germany and Switzerland followed and was recorded for the Revival Live 1999 CD which appeared in March 2000 after which there were more concerts in Germany and Greece plus the first concerts in England by any of the band members since 1992 In the meantime Les Holroyd was also working on a solo album together with Mel Pritchard and others and Revolution Days was released as Barclay James Harvest Featuring Les Holroyd in February 2002 This band undertook a number of festivals and two tours in France Germany Holland and Switzerland and the live show was captured on the Live In Bonn 30th October 2002 CD Tragically in January 2004 just after returning from some live shows in Switzerland Mel suffered a heart attack brought on by an embolism and died Barclay James Harvest Featuring Les Holroyd continue as a six piece without Mel touring extensively in Europe issuing a live CD and DVD with the Prague Symphony Orchestra and planning a new studio album John and Woolly started work on a second studio album with the working title North but for personal reasons John didn t feel ready to make an album and it was shelved Woolly decided instead to make a solo album working with Craig Fletcher and drummer Kevin Whitehead plus original Mæstoso guitarist Steve Broomhead The album One Drop In A Dry World was launched at a one off London concert in May 2004 with Kim Turner of the original Mæstoso band in the drum seat and was followed by the live CD Fiddling Meanly and two more studio abums Grim 2005 and Caterwauling 2007 In 2006 John and Woolly reconvened the band now rechristened John Lees Barclay James Harvest and set out on the first full UK tour by any members of Barclay James Harvest since 1992 The London show at the Shepherds Bush Empire was filmed and released in November 2007 as a DVD and CD entitled Legacy 2009 saw increasing activity from the band with live shows in the U S A Portugal Germany Switzerland Holland and Belgium plus another UK tour and the work rate continued into 2010 with songs being written for a new studio album plus a summer festival appearance in Portugal at the Douro Rock and Blues Festival It would prove to be Woolly s final live appearance A recurrence of a severe depressive condition meant that he was unable to participate in a series of concerts with John Lees Barclay James Harvest in November and December 2010 and on 13th December tragically he was found dead at his home After some deliberation at a sold out tribute concert to Woolly at Buxton Opera House in

  • Mel Pritchard
    part of the BJH sound as distinctive as the Mellotron and soaring lead guitar which became their trademarks on early classics such as Mocking Bird and She Said Listen to the recently issued recording of a BBC concert of band and orchestra from 1972 and the combination of power and subtlety in Mel s work is evident In 1969 he was paid a big compliment when he was approached by Fairport Convention to audition for the drum seat made vacant by the death of Martin Lamble in a road accident Mel turned down the opportunity though as he later explained in typically modest fashion nbsp First of all I think my ego was given a good massage by them asking me To be perfectly fair I don t think I came up to the standard they were looking for being absolutely honest Certainly Fairport were getting the better gigs the better money At the time Fairport were a big band and a damn good band as well and it was just this thing that permeates all the way through BJH this kind of loyalty You can t put a price on it In 1973 Mel married his girlfriend Janet and Barclay James Harvest signed to the Polydor label Some of Mel s finest recorded moments came over the next few years Everyone Is Everybody Else contains some stunning examples of his work not only in terms of his drumming but also lyrically The coda to Paper Wings features a superb multi tracked drum part and some of the best lyrics on the album came from Mel s pen nbsp I wrote all the lyrics to Paper Wings On Negative Earth Les had got this thing that I couldn t get out of my head and I wrote everything except For fifty five days It struck a chord with me and I like the alliteration of here in sycopated time while my tangled web of rhyme I just thought about the isolation of this guy With Paper Wings I was up the Eiffel Tower and I m not gifted with a head for heights so I got to the first stage The rest of the guys went up and I came down and there s a plaque at the bottom and this dent in the floor it s like Suicide was he pushed or did he jump It was basically that he was a broken man without a dream because if he jumped and he couldn t fly it was a broken dream or if somebody pushed him then it s still a vision that finished up as a bump in the floor I d like to do more On Turn Of The Tide the lyrics aren t mine but I put some initial ideas down like I m like a train off the tracks Back To The Wall was a bit like that as well I like lyrics but with such good lyricists as we ve got it s very
