Demorou 30 anos para que os fãs de rock pudessem ouvir novamente uma das raríssimas vezes em que três gênios da guitarra tocassem ao mesmo tempo em um palco. Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck e Jimmy Page, a santíssima trindade da guitarra inglesa, excursionou por alguns meses, ao lado de outros astros do rock, como Steve Winwood e Joe Cocker, entre 1983 e 1984, fazendo parte de uma turnê beneficente em prol da A.R.M.S., uma entidade britânica de apoio à pesquisa de uma doença chamada esclerose múltipla. Alguns dos shows foram transformados em dois concorridos vídeos em VHS chamados “A.R. M. S. Concert'', lançados em meados dos anos 90, mas jamais reeditados em DVD por questões de direitos autorais e o mesmo em relação ao áudio, só lançado uma única vez em CD, em edição limitadíssima.
O concerto – e sua turnê norte-americana subsequente – foi organizada pelo baixista e cantor inglês Ronnie Lane (ex-Small Faces e The Faces), que foi diagnosticado com esclerose múltipla, uma doença incurável e que provoca, entre outras coisas, o atrofiamento de músicos e afeta os nervos, em 1980. Membro emérito da entidade, juntou alguns amigos para a série de concertos beneficentes para arrecadar fundos a serem aplicados em pesquisas sobre a doença e na procura de uma eventual cura. Lane morreu em 1998, aos 51 anos, bastante debilitando, de problemas cardíacos agravados pela esclerose múltipla. Na série de concertos, um momento histórico acontece: Page, Beck e Clapton tocam juntos em duas músicas, “Layla'', grande sucesso de Clapton com o Derek and the Dominos, e em “Stairway to Heaven'', superclássico do Led Zeppelin, em versão instrumental.
The ARMS Charity Concerts were a series of charitable rock concerts in support of Action into Research for Multiple Sclerosis in 1983. The first (and initially planned to be the only) event took place at the Royal Albert Hall on September 20, 1983, with subsequent dates occurring in the United States, with slightly different lineups of musicians. The idea for hosting the concert was envisaged by Ronnie Lane, ex-bassist for The Small Faces and The Faces, himself a casualty of multiple sclerosis. The concert was billed as The Ronnie Lane Appeal for ARMS and featured a star-studded line-up of British musicians, including Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Steve Winwood, Andy Fairweather Low, Bill Wyman, Kenney Jones and Charlie Watts. The concert was particularly notable in the fact that it was the first occasion on which Clapton, Beck and Page, each a former lead guitarist for The Yardbirds, had performed together on stage.

With a working title of Rizla due to the album's cover art (an unravelled orange Rizla pack), Jugula, as this album is often called, was released on the Beggars Banquet label (BBL60) and reached the UK Top 20. The album contains a number of original songs written by Harper. It is recorded in a fresh and spontaneous manner, often with only the unique sound of Ovation guitars and vocals. Occasionally, the arrangements are filled with synthesizer and electric guitar. This album in particular brought Harper to a new and wider audience, mainly due to Harper and Jimmy Page's appearances at the Cambridge Folk Festival in 1984, an album tour and a 15-minute televised interview by Mark Ellen on the Old Grey Whistle Test (16 November 1984). The interview featured Harper and Page playing their acoustic guitars on the side of Side Pike in the English Lake District, a somewhat different and unusual interview for the time. Songs played included "Hangman" and part of "The Same Old Rock".
This album was the fifth that Harper and Page had worked on, but the first entire record they made together. Page's guitar playing is quite evident throughout the album, and is a natural complement to Harper's unique guitar work. The first track, "Nineteen Forty-Eightish", a reference to George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, crescendos with lead guitar by Page. Other tracks include "Hangman", a song that expresses the feelings of an innocent man condemned to die and "Frozen Moment", a song played entirely in the chord of C#. The title for 'Jugula' came from playing Trivial Pursuit, in order to explain to everyone how they should go about answering the questions as straight and honestly as possible I'd say, "Go for the jugula". It was going to be 'Harper & Page' for a while, but that's like selling Jimmy's name, then it went to '1214' which is the year that the Magna Carta was signed... but that was a bit esoteric. So one day we were talking and "jugula" came up, so I phoned the artist and they'd designed up to the 'Whatever happened to...' bit so I said leave it there and put Jugula at the end.
The track "Hope" originated as a tune written by David Gilmour for his second solo album About Face. He asked Pete Townshend to supply lyrics, but felt that he couldn't relate to them, so Townshend used the song instead, as "White City Fighting", with Gilmour playing guitar, on his album White City: A Novel. Gilmour sent the same tune to Harper, whose lyrics had the same effect on Gilmour. Harper used the result, "Hope", which has a markedly slower tempo, on this album, with his son Nick Harper (16 years old at the time), playing the lead guitar (not Gilmour as is often mistakenly stated). A cover version of "Hope", with "Bad Speech" as an introduction, can be found on the album Eternity by the Liverpudlian band Anathema, an album that Harper also appears on.
