A Major Fancy is Lees's paintbrush of rock music, done outside Barclay James Harvest despite that not completely disconnected from the big band. The recording finished in 1972, but everything went on stand-by until late 1976-1977. As the grand vocalist in BJH, Lees receive, right here, both a greater freedom of expression and a weaker kind of inspiration. His album is placid (even lowly significant) but fruitful, plotted on an unforgettable serenity, nevertheless full of flavor.

100 privileged guests form part of this concert with a band who have played to hundreds of thousands at one gig alone-and see the wry introduction of "Poor Man's Moody Blues" by John Lees. Recorded at the end of 2010 the band welcomed the audience to "John's bedroom" and gave virtually a song-by-song rendition of the story of Barclay James Harvest. Filmed live for ITV in the intimate surroundings of London's Metropolis Studios on 4th December, 2010. The band was appearing as a quartet in the absence of Woolly Wolstenholme, who was unable to appear due illness, and who tragically died nine days later.
