4 stars I have always loved the music of the STRAWBS with "Ghosts" reaching top shelf. "Ghosts" is a musically rich and inspired album with some nice diverse moods and themes. My favourite STRAWBS tune of all time (next to "Autumn" from "Hero and Heroine") is "The Life Auction" with its clear GENESIS inspired progressive vibes and mellotron led accompaniment. "Ghosts" is also quite a diverse sounding album really with folk-like passages (aka Cat Stevens), straight ahead classic rock, pop and obviously progressive sounds. Band members include David Cousins (vox, guitars), Dave Lambert (vox, guitars), pianist John Hawken (from the first line up of RENAISSANCE), bassist Chas Cronk (from Rick WAKEMAN's band) as well as Rod Coombes on the drums. Overall a brilliant album and a definite need in your collection.
