5 stars The fans of the Strawbs, and especially the Progressive fans, would probably think that an accoustic album, containing some of the finest moments of the "Electric Strawbs", must be dull and boring. well, surprise, surprise!! this album is completely different then any of the 'Un Pluged' TV shows you ever heard. Accustic Strawbs is one of the unique example of how an Un Pluged album should be. Three Accustic Guitars, held by Dave Cousins, Dave Lambert and Brian Willoughby sound like a full band. every on of the trio is playind different chords and solos, and even the most ellectric songs, such as "Down by the sea" from "Bursting at the seams" or "The flower and the young man" and "Benedictus" from "Grave New World", sound like a full orchestra is preforming. the voices of Cousins and Limbert, never sounded so Sharp and sensative as in this masterpice and there are some new songs in this album, that fit supperbly in to the context, such as the beautiful sog writen by Willoughby, "Alices Song" and Lambert's "Inside your hell tonight". in the Days when every Alternative "Artist" that released five singels is going on a documented unpluged toure, it is delightfull to listen to these three Real musicians that are playing theire eternal music and give us a true Glimpse of Heaven.
