Once Again


Once Again was the second album released by Barclay James Harvest, in early 1971. It is generally regarded as one of their strongest efforts, featuring powerful, epic tracks such as "Song For the Dying", "She Said", and "Mocking Bird", one of their best songs. As was the case with their other early albums, it was recorded with a full orchestra.

Designed by Latimer Reeves and based on an enlarged section of the design for the debut album. The full effect can only be obtained by opening out the original gatefold sleeve, so later reissues such as the 'Fame' release which came in single sleeves rather defeat the object. The inside of the gatefold contains very little information and no lyrics, although the full lyrics are given after the description of each song on this page.
