    bigchris Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Well I haven't even tried to look for a hidden message ... but I might want to in the future, so perhaps if people are desperate for "the answer" you could PM them instead and keep the spoilers away !?

    Nick Harper
    Son of the legendary UK singer-songwriter Roy Harper, Nick was born in London and raised in Wiltshire. Having played the guitar from the age of 10 and surrounded by the likes of Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and Dave Gilmour as he grew up, it was no surprise when Nick made his recording debut on his father’s Whatever Happened to Jugula? in 1985.

    A busy 2013 saw Nick on a major UK solo tour in support of his 8th studio album ‘Riven’. An epic recording with legendary producer Tchad Blake at the helm. Nick has also found time to play on new recordings with Lana Del Rey, Newton Faulkner and Steven Wilson this year, via his 6th appearance at Glastonbury Festival, whilst also running his own charity concert/walk in deepest Wiltshire in August – at Devil's Den Rocks....

    SPB etal.,

    Well, I finally ordered Nick's new CD "NIX."

    I find I'm becoming a bit of a "binge Harpernaut." Like people who watch a whole season of TV in one sitting, I OD on Roy and Nick every so often. But what a way to go! I still listen to a little Roy almost every day like a teenage superfan but to practice my vocals and find/stretch my limits (Vocal Chords are like any other muscle). Lately I've been going over Nick and Roy's catalogs and re-listening to my podcast and the podcast with Jonathan Wilson I kept starting but never finishing.

    I finally finished the Jonathan Wilson Podcast (I listened to the first half as soon as it came out) on my brand new iPhone and knew I had to order "Nix." I know that's a non-sequitur, but re-listening to my Podcast 35 the first time since it came out, I was full of non-sequiturs!

    Waiting to hear what you're all raving about. Sounds good!

    PROBLEM w/ American orders on Nick's website:

    Paula or others,

    When I filled in my address it autofilled my county as "Aberdeenshire" which I couldn't fix. I stuck with it through the payment section, then got a notice I hadn't entered my State (in the same place as "county") and had to re-enter other info. When I noticed my email was missing a letter I ended up canceling and starting over with the same order which I finally got completed. In the meantime I received an email saying my first attempted order had been canceled (I assume this was an automated reply and didn't use my manually mis-entered address, but don't know). I did get a proper confirm for the second attempt.

    I hope this info gets to the right people and helps improve North American sales. I remember Roy's site was a little buggy when I first used it, but I was pleased to get a thoughtful phone message from Tracy because I'd somehow doubled the order, and will always cherish speaking to her personally to get it straightened out.

    Waiting to give my review of "NIX" in a week or two.

    Love to all Harpernauts!

    I'm enjoying NIX too :D I'm particularly fond of Beauty Came First and Breathe, I think they are the two songs that grabbed me on first listen. I love the 'rolling lyrics' of Beauty Came First... that just hits my spot :cool:

    And I think the rendition at the end of the gig was a highlight :D

    Travellerman Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Indeed it was!

    A touching, generous and much appreciated gesture that, after such a power driven second set, surely went above and beyond the call of duty! For me, BCF is one of those songs where chords, lyrics and vocals just come together in a wonderful and special way.

    Lucky Harry... :D
