This 1975 album is one of Harper’s best loved, not least because it closes with the devastating When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease. Featuring a colliery band behind a lyric using the titular sport as a metaphor for mortality and nostalgia, it became an epitaph for John Peel. Other highlights include Hallucinating Light and the 13-minute The Game (parts 1-5), and David Gilmour, Bill Bruford and John Paul Jones make appearances. Long overdue reissue on 180g vinyl with updated artwork and new sleevenotes.
