    I am pleased to note that Roy was listed in my 2010 update of "The Definitive Illustrated Encyclopedia of Rock" first published in 2006.

    As you might expect, it is a tiny acknowledgement of Roy's great contribution in letters a mighty 1/16 of an inch high. It is in the fourth of four columns on page 182, the first of two pages listing artists that began in the SIXTIES.

    Here it is:

    "Harper, Roy, Folk Rock: UK Folk, 1960s-, Artist, British"

    That was it.

    Not nearly as impressive as the three columns and two pictures on pages 102-103 of "The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Rock" published in 1977.

    But consider the "-" in the concise and "definitive" version. It means Roy and his music continue to this day, and that IS a remarkable statement for a tiny "-" and a big spirit. Roy made or is making music in SIX different decades! The 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, and 10s!

    That entry reminds me of the entry for Earth in "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

    "Mostly harmless"

    Hmmm do you think RH could be described as "Mostly harmless"

    Certainly, in comparison to Earth!
