5 stars This one belongs to the golden triad by the Strawbs. The band was still closely connected to the "folk tradition" and the album has a very acoustic sound.and pastoral feeling that In some ways reminds me of Nick Drake and some other artists on the Island label. This does not mean its not original - no other record sounds like this.

The opener, "The weary song" sets the tone, followed by a string of Dave Cousins classics. It is difficult to choose any favorite since all tunes are fantastic. There is not one weak tune on the album. The epic "The vision of the lady of the lake" shows us were the band was going next - eg. into a more electric sounding band.

I was close to forget to mention the other two records in "the golden triad". They are of course "From the Witchwood" and "Grave New World"
