4 stars I do not own studio-albums from The STRAWBS, I'm more pleased with some compilations and especially live-recordings. My favourite is the CD "Strawbs In Concert" with BBC radio- recodings from '73 and '74. The music frequently ranges from folky (acoustic guitars) and classic (piano and harpsichord) to bombastic, symphonic rock (fiery electric guitar and glorious Mellotron waves in the vein of BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST and The MOODY BLUES). The vocals are powerful with a lot of expression, very distinctive. The tracking list (15 songs) includes all their best material like "Tears And Pavan", "Down By The Sea", the UK #2 hitsingle "Part Of The Union" and "Hero And Heroine". This is The STRAWBS at their apogee, very unique and compelling music.
