More info

The first CD release of a previously unreleased album by Strawbs – restored and remastered. Presented as a 24 track CD - the original album, alternative recordings and mixes, out-takes and unreleased tracksThe album features guest appearances from John Paul Jones, Nicky Hopkins.


This is the long-lost, never released, Strawbs album. Produced by Gus Dudgeon with Tony Visconti as musical director, it falls between the 1967 recording of ‘All our own work’ by Sandy Denny and the Strawbs and the first A&M album ‘Strawbs’ released in 1969. It is a mix of lavish orchestral stylings, a concept, a sense of humour, and the modal harmonies and tunings that have come to define Strawbs music over the years. This extraordinary album features John Paul Jones, Nicky Hopkins, Ray Cooper, and Ronnie Verrell, and has many bonus features including an interview with a shopkeeper played by Richard Wilson who had an encounter with a man who called himself Jesus, and Tony Visconti impersonating Ed Sullivan.

Strawbs of a time

Dave cousins est au British folk ce qu'est John Mayall au British blues.Il s'est inspiré des influences du fairport convention , a joué avec Sandy Denny, a digéré les bidouillages en studio des Beatles, a produit des albums à thème et aux paroles recherchées et a composé des titres en forme de suite comme le rock progressif a su en produire.Bref vous avez compris, ce groupe est capital car de tout ces mélanges il a créé un style personnel grâce à l'inventivité et à la voix caractéristique de son leader.Comme pour J.Mayall, des musiciens se sont succedés au sein du groupe au fur et à mesure de l'évolution des tendances musicales sans renier pour autant la source folk et spirituel de ce groupe.Et cet album resté dans les tiroirs que seul JCR music news pouvait dégoter, m'a procuré cette joie intense à son écoute.On y trouve tout ce que ce groupe a produit par la suite et que je viens de vous définir.Le son est génial, les raretés incroyables et déjà les titres qui feront leur succès sont présents.L'acquisition de cet objet rare vous donnera l'envie pour ceux qui découvriront ce groupe ou en connaissent qu'une infime partie d'acheter leur discographie car comme pour les Beatles, il n' y a rien de mineur, tout est essentiel...
