Prog Reviewer
5 stars This is the CD for prog.rockers. I've always found Strawbs LPs to be rather spotty, but for my money - every track on here is either form their prog. period or their stab at psychedelia. Not really folky at all. This is one of the few compilations I'd give 5 stars. Someone really had an interest in making a statement here with the emphasis on prog. If you're midly interested in the Strawbs, this is THE compilation to have. It doens't miss out on any of the highlights and there's not one stinker here. You even get a Rick Wakeman keyboard jam from the live track _Where Is This Dream Of Our Youth?_ where he sounds not too far removed from Jon Lord of Deep Purple.
