|Roy Harper Lifemask Limited Deluxe Gatefold Reissue 180gram LP
;;;; This year marks two important milestones for Roy Harper - his 75th birthday and 50 years of recording music.
;;;; To celebrate Roy will be performing four special concerts in September and releasing the first vinyl reissues of his classic albums, none of which have been available on vinyl for well over 20 years.
;;;; The first three titles to be reissued are ‘Flat Baroque And Berserk’, ‘Lifemask’ and ‘Stormcock’. These are special editions released independently on Roy’s own Science Friction label.
;;;; All three albums were recorded at Abbey Road Studios and released in the early 1970s. The audio has been remastered and mixed by Roy and long-time friend and engineer John Fitzgerald at Lettercolm Studio in West Cork, Ireland.
;;;; The artwork has been reproduced and enhanced by another friend, Harry Pearce and his team at Pentagram in London.
These three titles will be released in deluxe gatefold covers on 180g vinyl. ‘Lifemask’ will be packaged in the original centre split gatefold. All three contain a heavy, printed inner sleeve including extra notes and images additional to the original releases.
;;;; For the 75th Birthday Celebration Tour shows Roy will be playing with an 8 piece string and brass ensemble, with another guest or two to be announced.
