Barclay James Harvest
Barclay James Harvest is an English progressive rock band that was founded in Oldham in September 1966. With their unique sound and captivating performances, they quickly gained a loyal following. However, in 1998, the band unfortunately split into two different groups: one led by *John Lees* and the other by *Les Holroyd*. Despite this setback, Barclay James Harvest's influence on the progressive rock genre cannot be denied.
