AllMusic Review by

This live release contains an assortment of songs that Roy Harper recorded in the mid-'80s at various venues in England. As with most of Harper's projects, several prominent artists make guest appearances, including Jimmy Page, who lends guitar to at least three tracks. Unfortunately, specific details as to which musician played on what tracks or where these tracks were recorded are missing from the liner notes. This overall sketchiness when it comes to annotating his live albums is an ignoble trend in Harper's catalog. The bulk of the songs are performed alone by Harper with his acoustic guitar. While these are typical for the era, they definitely aren't extraordinary, especially when compared to Harper's earlier live work. This fact, coupled with the poor liner notes and generally muddy sound, make In Between Every Line mostly suitable for Harper's fans. The CD omits the song "Hangman," which was found on the LP version.
