Which epic Strawbs song do you prefer: Ghosts from the album of the same name  or Autumn from Hero and Heroine?

I'll have to re-investigate. I moved them from album to CD without individuating or marking the tracks.

Hero and Heroine is the better album, but I prefer Ghosts to Autumn. Tough choice though, a good poll!

Good to see this great band getting some attention on here - at last.

I just can't vote. Both these tracks give me goosebumps.

Autumn for me.
Dig me...But don't...Bury me
I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive

Two of my favorite Strawbs songs, one as dark as the other is sweet. My heart votes one way, my head the other. Heads win this time: Ghosts.

Have to go with Autumn.

Definitely Ghosts for me, as much as I love Autumn or just any Strawbs song, Ghosts just gets inside of me deeper.

Autumn.

When he rides, my fears subside.
For darkness turns once more to light.
Through the skies, his white horse flies.
To find a land beyond the night.
