Lifemask Roy Harper - SHVL 808

£19.99

Product description

'Lifemask' is the sixth album by folk / rock singer-songwriter and guitarist Roy Harper, and was first released in 1973 by Harvest Records. It was written by Harper during a period of illness when HHT, which leads to polycythemia, threatened his health and incapacitated him. With thoughts of life and death upon his mind, side two of the album features a lengthy 23 minute track entitled "The Lord's Prayer" which Harper described as "my last will and testament".
The gatefold album cover is a representation of Harper's 'death mask', that opens centrally to reveal Harper, staring out.
There is some dust soiling and light general marks on the front and rear of the sleeve, as well as some slight edge-creasing. The record has a superficial scratch on track one of side one, but playback quality is unaffected.
