    Barclay James Harvest in disguise go Glam on this one, at least on side one, side two sounds like … euh … early BJH and don’t do much for me.

    1972 French pressing on Harvest label [with B-side “When The City Sleeps”].

    ITC Pioneer was issued by the International Typeface Corporation in 1970. This sleeve is probably an early use of the dry-transfer version by French company Mecanorma, who licensed the typeface in 1972 (UK-based competitor Letraset did so, too, before 1976). The band name is in another shaded typeface, Madeleine Shaded (Mecanorma, 1972), designed by Colin Brignall, then at Graphic Systems. Brignall had previously made the similar Octopuss (1970) for Letraset, and added Octopuss Shaded in 1974 after his return to Letraset.
