3 stars It took me 33 years to finally get my hands on Dragonfly and I was not disappointed. Yes still very much a folk album but it had progressed from their debut album with longer pieces.Of the shorter tracks my favourite would have to be ' I turned my face to the wind' where typically Cousins has that incredible knack of putting you right there on some lonely, gloomy moor in the face of a stiff wind. He is arguably one of the finest lyricists of all time.' Josephine for better or for worse' another beautiful song.' The vision of the Lady of the Lake' undoubtedly the finest track. What is exciting about The Strawbs was their evolution or metamorphosis. Watching them grow or even seeing it in retrospect is a great experience to behold. Dragonfly is a darn good album to have.
