Review by Easy Livin
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator / Retired Admin
2 stars If you have the choice, there are better Strawbs compilations

A reasonable, if somewhat brief introduction to the music of the Strawbs. The tracks are taken from their early A&M albums, up to "Hero and Heroine". One non album single, "Here it comes" is also present.

The track selections are adequate, although the inclusion of only "Lay down" from the hugely successful "Bursting at the seams" is strange. Conversely, there is rather an over-emphasis on their earlier, less well known output.

Rick Wakeman is of course featured on some of the tracks, prior to his defection to Yes. Of these, "The shepherd's song" is where he shines brightest.

In summary, a fair cross section of early tracks, but there are now better Strawbs compilations.

2 stars Yes this an odd compilation and I urge only diehard collectors to seek this one out.The' Shepherd's song' and ' Benedictus' the best of them. It is odd only in the fact that the selection is unusual. The songs are great though.

2 stars One of many collections that are available. Now that "one week last summer" is available on Cd there is nothing here that remains rare other than on vinyl. All of the tracks here are good Strawbs numbers. It would have made better sense if the last 3 tracks had not been included and few track ... (read more)

4 stars Yes, there have been many Strawbs compilations and collections issued over the years. The sad fact is that this brief, but exceptional introduction to the band's heyday from 1968 through 1974 has not been reissued on compact disc and so is only available as a used vinyl record. What distinguis ... (read more)

3 stars This album was released shortly after"Hero and heroine", and intended as a - quote: "...profound acknowledgement of the developments that have taken place over the last 6 years", unquote. That, this album certainly is. Strawbs developed and evolved..more so than most of their contemporaries ... (read more)
