Dia G 27.07.08 (2) - Roy Harper - H.Q. (1975 UK)

HQ is the eighth studio album by English folk / rock singer-songwriter and guitarist Roy Harper. It was first released in 1975 by Harvest Records. In the USA the album was released under the title When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease, which is also the name of the LP's most popularly known track.

Harper considered HQ to be "...probably the best record that I have made to date"[1] and "...a great album made at one of the best times of my life"[2] Originally the album was to be called Blood From a Stone, but it was changed to avoid unwanted comparisons with Dylan's Blood on the Tracks.[3]

The album features David Gilmour and John Paul Jones, playing lead guitar and bass respectively, on "The Game"[4] and The Grimethorpe Colliery Band on "When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease", one of Harper's best-known songs.
