Influential English progressive folk singer/songwriter Roy Harper's debut album was originally released in 1966 as The Sophisticated Beggar in a poorly distributed edition and reissued in 1970 as Return Of The Sophisticated Beggar. Harper has always been hard to pigeon-hole, but here he travels the same acoustic road as fellow troubadours like Bert Jansch, John Martyn and Nick Drake on versatile, poetic standouts like "China Girl," "Blackpool" and "Legend." "My first record, 'Sophisticated Beggar', was nothing short of a wild journey into deepest space," explains Harper. "I had only just booted a very troubled childhood into touch, when suddenly I was making a record. To say that I was overjoyed with the progress at the time would be a colossal understatement...I ran wild and Pierre Tubbs and I made a good record. There are many enjoyable tracks and in it's own little way 'Sophisticated Beggar' was a microcosm of much that was to follow."
