Barclay James Harvest - A good name is better than riches

How Barclay James Harvest got their band name - Uncle_Scrooge_20The English band from Saddleworth, Lancashire has a repertoire that may be qualified as symphonic-melodic rock.

The band name is supposed to have come about by putting a number of notes into a hat on which the band members had written single words, and then taking them out again one by one, after which the notes were shuffled until three words remained.

James is thought to refer to an ex-band member, Harvest to their stay in a barn and Barclay to the bank by that name, the objective clearly being to get rich fast.

A beautiful and remarkable story, but isn't it just as beautiful and remarkable that all three words are the names of record labels?

Active: 1966-present, GBR
