Barclay James Harvest are an English rock band specialising in Symphonic/Melodic Rock with folk/progressive/classical influences. The band was founded in Saddleworth, a civil parish now in the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham, in September 1966 by John Lees, Les Holroyd, Stuart "Woolly" Wolstenholme, and Mel Pritchard (1948-2004). After signing with EMI's Parlophone in the UK for one single in early 1968, they moved to the more progressively inclined Harvest label. Their self-titled debut album was released in mid 1970 to positive reviews, but few sales. Their second album Once Again gained more favourable reviews, and the tour that followed was conducted with a full orchestra under the guidance of Robert John Godfrey.

Polydor 817 950-2 | 280mb

A competent collection of lightweight '80s rock. The simple arrangement of opening track "Sideshow" is helped by the use of guest backing vocalists, and the title track is one of BJH's better efforts from this period. The weakest link is in the keyboards, which unfortunately are also front and center in the recording. Bias Boshell creates some pleasant atmospherics, but Wolstenholme's shoes are just too big to fill. ~ allmusic

Punk's rise in Britain seemed to be leading to the demise of Barclay James Harvest, the fate awaiting so many of the island's veteran rock bands. Although 1976's Octoberon had finally pushed the band into the U.K. Top 20, it was all downhill from there, as the group's follow-ups in 1977 and 1978 landed ever lower in the listings, something that Barclay James Harvest's shift to a brighter, more American sound did nothing to prevent. Keyboardist Wooly Wolstenholme had enough, and announced his decision to depart in early 1979 during the rehearsals for their forthcoming album.

It took some time for this album to even be released in the UK, such was BJH's demise in their homeland. They were still finding success in continental Europe however, and this album, while still bearing the band's hallmark sound, was clearly geared towards that market.
"Back in the game" kicks things off with a typical piece of mid-paced BJH light rock. Les Holroyd and John Lees share the song writing credits throughout the album, but as usual they write alone, and take lead vocals on their own songs. Many of the tracks here, while not necessarily slow or sad in terms of sound, are reflective lyrically. There's plenty of self examination, and "good old days" philosophy.
