Roy Harper Bullinamingvase 180g Vinyl LP

Bullinamingvase (a wordplay on "Bull in a Ming vase") is the ninth studio album by English folk/rock singer-songwriter and guitarist Roy Harper. Co-produced with John Leckie and recorded at Abbey Road Studio, it was first released in 1977 by Harvest Records. In the U.S. the album was released as One Of Those Days In England. The record features a mix of musicians and instruments, including the Vauld Symphony Orchestra (named after the Marden, Herefordshire farm Harper owned and recorded in at the time).

One of the album's highlights is the epic, 19 minute, "One Of Those Days In England (Parts 2 – 10)" (side 2 of the album). Comprising several musical movements, the song is a collection of reminiscences from both a personal and cultural perspective. Harper sings of "Britannica and all those who sail in her, especially those with Albions cultural heritage claws..." and refers to the Alfred Jewel. "Naked Flame" is modeled on the traditional "Lady Franklin's Lament," in much the same way as "Bob Dylan's Dream" (from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan) used the same source.
