V.A. - Harvest Festival Box Set
12:03

Harvest Festival focuses on the label's two more successful styles.

First there's the folkier side, comprising ardent traditionalists like Shirley and Dolly Collins, Martin Carthy, and The Albion Band; folk-influenced individualists like Michael Chapman and the great Roy Harper; and exceedingly twee folk-poppers like Panama Limited Jug Band, Third Ear Band and Gryphon. Between them, this lot contribute many of Harvest Festival's most appealing moments, especially if you have a taste for finger-picked acoustic guitars and hand percussion.

But the majority of Harvest Festival is devoted to post-psychedelic artists who were able to skew pop-song conventions just enough to turn them into something totally unique. Syd Barrett, Kevin Ayers, Be-Bop Deluxe, and the grand Roy Wood dynasty -- The Move (was a better single than "Do Ya" released in the '70s?), the Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard and his solo records -- are the true stars of Harvest Festival. It's their songs, not those of their better-selling brethren like Deep Purple and the Barrett-less Pink Floyd, that make it sound like simply the next step, not a revolution, when the buzzsaw pop-punk of the Saints and the thorny experimentalism of Wire appear late in the set with classics like "(I'm) Stranded" and the seven-minute beautiful-noise soundscape "A Touching Display."
