I've been listening to Lifemask a lot recently (although I've played it steadily since the age of 18) I haven't got a favorite RH album I love 99% of them but this has always held that special something for me along with COFGS. When I first got into Roy's music I was young and carefree flitting from one new experience to the next, subsequently memories of songs such as the raw statement of Highway Blues, the haunting South Africa, Little Lady and the amazingly thought provoking epic The Lords Prayer never fail to transport me to the late 80's when I signed on and smoked hash for a living. I was married at a young age and was experiencing severe relationship difficulties at the time, Lifemask was my escape at that time a sort of sanctuary where I withdrew to. Its strange how certain songs can evoke and preserve the emotion of particular life changing events, it's very apt to me that Roy named this album Lifemask. I often think this album is under played and under rated in some ways, however it gets plenty of airplay on my media player, I sometimes wonder if this album has a similar effect on others or is it just me? Definitely food for thought!
