For No One

Album: Everyone Is Everybody Else (1974)
  • The June 1993 issue of the Barclay James Harvest fanzine Nova Lepidoptera describes "For No One" as "A classic anti-war song". It provided the title of the album - the phrase "Everyone is everybody else" appears in the chorus. Not much more can be said except that while it isn't strictly speaking a concept album, the message behind this very fine John Lees composition is central to this 1970s classic, which was remastered and reissued with bonus tracks in 2003. >>
