4 stars This album is a good collection of folk song + the best keyboard solo i've eard in my life !!!!

I prefer "From the Witchwood" than this album, the son are better and it flows better. Don't get me wrong, there are good songs too on this one, like "The Antique Suite" and "Song Of A Sad Little Girl" but what makes this album so special is the 9 min tour de force "Where Is This Dream Of Your Youth", where Rick Wakeman is let lose on the Hammond organ, INCREDIBLE !!!!!!!!! I have never eard a keyboard solo like this in my life. Just for that song, it deserve a 4 stars instead of the 3 Stars i was planning to give.

So if your a fan of keyboards solo, or of Wakeman, get this. If you just whant to discover the band, or add another "Strawbs" album in your collection, go for "From the Witchwood" or the later release like, "Hero & Heroine", "Bursting At The Seams".
