Roy Harper – Committed – a track from the first album

For all those who think of Roy as an acoustic folkie, this clearly demonstrates the folly of that view. Roy utilises a full spectrum of styles. On this first album, there is an example of psychedelia as well as this mad romp.

I’m not sure who is playing on this. Ritchie Blackmore is in there! If anybody knows – let me know!

This always makes me laugh. It is about Roy’s experience in a mental hospital where he was treated with drugs and given ECT.

it obviously worked!
