Being a yank, I first heard Harper's name mentioned in Led Zeppelin III. While making the rounds of the cut-out bins in Cook's and K-Mart, I picked up copies of "Flashes From The Archives of Oblivion", and a best-of single LP. After hearing "South Africa" (live), with the echo effects, and "Forbidden Fruit", I knew he was worth getting into. His voice is very pleasing, and his attitude I can relate to. I looked on Wickipedia about him, and realized the religious influence which he rebelled against, and that's a connection that I didn't articulate, but now I see. I've never heard his son. Harper's stuff is pretty much a specialty item here in most record stores though you run into the odd CD sometimes. I'm always going to the Ben Harper section and then looking for Roy. I found "Once" as a cut-out CD, and turned several friends on to the song "The Black Cloud Of Islam". I'm looking forward to getting some feedback on English & Scottish bands (like Forever More; anybody remember them?).
