    The album's title, Stormcock, is an old English name for the Mistle Thrush. The male of this species "...sings its loud melodious song from a tree, rooftop or other elevated perch, often during bad weather or at night", perhaps a perfect metaphor for Harper himself. Harper has an appreciation of birdlife and has made reference to many birds on his albums.
    The album features four extended songs which showcase Harpers talents, both as songwriter and guitarist. But, perhaps most significantly, "..Stormcock...epitomized a hybrid genre that had no exclusive purveyors save Harper — epic progressive acoustic.".
    The album credits "S. Flavius Mercurius" for the lead guitar on "The Same Old Rock". The guitarist, better known as Jimmy Page, was unnamed within the album credits until the 2007 remastered re-release for contractual reasons.
    Johnny Marr, guitarist with The Smiths, is on record stating that "Stormcock" was "intense and beautiful and clever".
    Stormcock was an inspiration to Californian harpist Joanna Newsom, greatly influencing her second album Ys.
