BJH have languished in the shadows too long as the nearly men of British rock. One of the most underrated bands of the last 40 years, their work is at last being re-evaluated with a series of reissues, all with bonus tracks. Live Tapes, from 1977, captures them on tour, and in top form.

If you like intelligent melodic rock music - but with an edge - this collection of some of their best songs, superbly played by John Lees, Les Holroyd, Woolly Wolstenholme, and the late Mel Pritchard, will provide a rich harvest.
