4 stars Bursting at the Seams was another matserpiece by the Strawbs. Hard on the heels of Grave New World, we were introduced to Dave Lambert who replaced the outgoing Tony Hooper. The album is rich in quality from the stunning ' Lady Fuscia', the epic long ' Tears and Pavan' ( if you have never heard this track you do not know what you are missing) and the haunting ' The River' . There are definite folk roots still in Strawbs even to this day. Sure they were going more to mainstream rock directions but these were still concept albums. This album also features the highly successful tracks ' Lay Down' and ' Part of the Union', the latter to this day unfortunately still used by advertising moguls or political bodies wanting to impose strike actions!
