1994 release. "Valentine, released on that day in 1974, is a collection of tracks that Roy Harper recorded during the '70s, but did not include on either Stormcock or Lifemask. The fact that this album somehow gels is testimony to just how talented Harper was at this point in his career. All Harper albums have stellar cameos, and this one is no different. Jimmy Page adds devastating lead guitar to 'Male Chauvinist Pig Blues.' In addition, David Bedford continues his streak of outstanding string arrangements on Harper albums with particularly winning versions for 'I'll See You Again' and Commune.' The instrumental 'Che' is a reminder of Harper's astounding and influential acoustic guitar technique, while 'Twelve Hours Of Sunset' rivals 'Waterloo Sunset' as one of the most beautiful songs in the English language."
