God, talk about beautiful cover art (!), this is one of my favorite album covers, and to this day I have searched for promotinal materials for this album, but never located any. A promo poster of this artwork would look great on the wall of my home office.....
OK, so good cover art does not make a good album, but in this case nothing could be further from the truth. Time and Tide is a beautiful album of well written and executed progressive pop/ art rock. Yes, anyone who has heard any Barclay James Harvest prior to this album will know what they are getting with Time And Tide, but who cares? These guys could make music for the next hundred years and I would buy everything they record and I don’t say that about many bands. Again, a superb album and one of Barclay James Harvest’s best.
Mel Pritchard- rest in peace.
