If you never buy another hippie album buy this one. The extra tracks are a bonus but the album is it stood was as near perfection as it gets.
'Everyone is everybody else' was the pirate Radio Caroline's signoff tune in the early 70's. It was as clear and concise an anthem of 1960's rebellion as anyone achieved, including John Lennon. When one relistens to these kinds of albums one expects some embarassment. Here there is none. I expect the band would not change a single line in any song. The guitar is as beautiful now as it was 30 years ago.
The '1974 Mining Diaster' as a huge song. It is allegedly about a certain rock star's casual advocacy of fascism and heroin. It is both beautiful and true.
'Child of the Universe' is another classic, which one would expect to grace countless TV documentaries but it hasn't for some reason.
It was BJH's misfortune to be a little too intellectual for the Anglo-Saxon market. Their popularity was in mainland Europe. But if Nick Drake can be recognised after 30 years, there is hope that BJH will finally get the recognition they so richly deserved.

It's too bad that the only people who will read this review are those who are already familiar with "Everyone is Everybody Else." I have worn this record album out, having played it so often over the past 20 years, and yet I am still mesmerized by this utmost work of art. It's too bad BJH got so little attention in the United States. Had this album been discovered here, every melodic, perfectly crafted song on it would be considered a classic, known in the same way we know so many Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel songs -- it is that good. This album is Barclay James Harvest's finest work, done before the band got infatuated with itself and its overly ambitious -- and disappointing -- orchestral work. With a deep foundation in the blues, "Everyone is Everybody Else" is one of the few Barclay James Harvest records that has stood the test of time, the other being "Time Honoured Ghosts," which is of equal merit. --Richard McCormack

After a quarter century of waiting for them to tour (maybe they did , but I missed it) I would still go and see them today. Every moody blues lover has to love BJH who are a little more mellow in their delivery, but also very enchanting. This effort and time honoured ghosts are my favourites, and will always be welcomed as a soothing and relaxing bit of history that I will play forever. John Ridpath,

I have to admit that my first exposure to the music of BJH was very pleasant and this 1974 release is really not bad at all. The lineup consisted of John Lees (electric and acoustic guitar); Mel Pritchard (drums and percussion); Les Holroyd (bass, acoustic guitar, and rhythm guitar); and Stuart "Woolly" Wolstenholme (mellotron, synthesizers, electric piano, and piano). The album was produced by Rodger Bain (the guy who produced the earliest Black Sabbath albums) and his influences are felt here and there, albeit rarely.

The album opens with the moody track Child of the Universe, which features some nice mini-moog synthesizer work atop the standard bass, guitar, and drums setup. This is the heaviest synth piece, whereas the mellotron is used predominantly on the remaining tracks. The lead vocals and vocal harmonies are also pleasant and work well with the material.

The overall sound of the album is, in large part, dominated by a gloomy and plodding Pink Floyd-ish beat in 4/4, saturated with mellotron (with string setting), and sprinkled with tasteful leads on the electric guitar. There are however, moments where things perk up a bit, as on the vigorous "tribal" drumming section of Paper Wings, and the crunchy, distorted electric guitar parts that are scattered here and there (Crazy City). Favorite tracks include Child of the Universe; The Great 1974 Mining Disaster; See Me See You; the closing track For No One; and the proggy bonus track Maestoso (A Hymn in the Roof of the World).

This alongside 1971's "Once Again" is BJH's masterpiece. While that album came in the middle of their early period '68 - '73 of dense rock orchestrations, magnificent gloom, King Crimson inspired eerieness and Pink Floydesque dreamscapes (probably fully mastered before Floyd and Gilmour found their own perfect place in the sonic scape), "Everyone Is Everybody Else" was the first of a serious of albums from BJH with a cleaner, lighter (less mellotron heavy and less or no orchestral or string backing) sound which would last (albeit qualitywise, fadingly) through to the end of the decade and produce a few other good to excellent albums, though none of them ever quite reaching the cool sonic plateau where this one plays on. The well channelled voices come out clear and vibrant and searchingly, sometimes infinitely sadly across the great melodies and superb instrumentation of songs like Negative Earth, Child of the Universe, Crazy City and Paper Wings. Here in 1974 was a band at the height of their rather magnificent artform. Sure, a couple of years later, a new, corrosive (and perhaps necessary) fashion in music culture swept away the foundations where such old stately rockers worked, and only the giants (Led Zep/Floyd/etc) survived with their reputations near intact. However, historical perspective is most likely not a very good tool to apply to music listening for critical purposes, as reading any pseudo-arty-nouveau-self-appointed-intellectual type NME critic will sometimes effectively show without any necessity for further explanation. Anyway, if you are alive and your ears are open, it doesn't take away from the sound of a record like this one what fashions and particular cultural hostilities come along afterwards ...Read more ›
