Roy Harper achieved some acclaim with releases like his debut, Sophisticated Beggar, and Flat Baroque and Berserk, but 1971's Stormcock was his first effort that was a fully realized success. Even though all four long songs on the record were arguably superior in subsequent live versions, this is one of only a handful of Harper's albums that has no weak cuts.

Stormcock is the fifth album by English folk singer-songwriter Roy Harper. Released in 1971, the album is held by most fans as his best work. With its unorthodox composition of only four songs, all of them above the 7 minute mark, the album wasn’t well received by Harper’s record label but gathered a legion of admirers, inspiring artists till this day, such as Joanna Newsom and Johnny Marr, from the english band The Smiths. Its characteristic tendency to sing after, and sometimes during, wet and windy weather gave him the name of Stormcock. This concept can be extended as a metaphor for Roy himself or, in a broader sense, as a representation of someone who is able to be vocal and transmit beauty even in the darkest of times. In the booklet from the digitally remastered version of the album, released in 2007, Harper wrote a little introduction with clues on what resides behind the meaning of each track.

With Roy Harper's fifth album, Stormcock (1971), is almost impossible for me to do so. This is a kind of music that gets me in a way that is hard to put in words. 4 tracks, basically Roy his guitar and his voice. There are some guests and some fantastic overdubs but they're not the main reason to listen this album. The way the melodies go on in a hypnotic way make you think how you actually got this little amazing gem get past you all this years? They say better late than never and I couldn't agree more

Reissued here in smart booklet format, Stormcock is widely regarded as a jewel of the Harper canon, a four-part song cycle featuring his lengthy ruminations on issues such as the lionisation of armed conflict ( One Man Rock AndRoll Band ) and the way organised religion holds humanity hostage to superstition ( The SameOld Rock ).
