Editorial Reviews

2008 digitally remastered and expanded edition of The Strawbs debut album, originally released in 1969, including three bonus tracks recorded for John Peel's Top Gear program on BBC Radio 1and first broadcast on January 12th 1969. Originally a Bluegrass band when they formed in 1967, The Strawbs took Progressive Rock to a new level by adding a healthy dose of English Folk influence to their heady mix. Led by Dave Cousins, the band never broke through commercially in the U.S. although their fanbase was large, loyal and fanatic. The enhanced packaging features rare and previously unseen photographs of the band and contains sleevenotes by Mark Powell. 10 tracks. Universal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming late-60s English folk-pop April 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Well, I don't have this edition, but I thought someone should review the album! The Strawbs started out in the 60s as an English bluegrass band (!) called the Strawberry Hill Boys, but had become a singer-songwriter folk band (as opposed to traditional folk) by the time they started recording. This is their first properly released album (they had done some wonderful recordings with the lovely vocalist Sandy Denny beforehand, but these were not released until later). The overall style is based around Dave Cousins folk songs, although they've been produced in the studio to take on a little bit of that late 60s pop sound. Overall rather quaint and nostalgiac, but with an underlying tasteful and well-written art to the songs.
If you like the late 60s original folk scene, particularly the British one, you're in for a treat. The band would go on in the early to mid- 70s to embrace progressive rock, but with a folk basis, so it's only on the Sandy Denny recordings, this album, and the following Dragonfly that we really get to enjoy the full "folk" aspect of the band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strawbs - self-titled (Black Rose) April 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Originally released in 1969, looks to be The Strawbs very first album. I forgot all about vocalist Sandy Denny (R.I.P.) being in an early incarnation of the British progressive / art rock collective. Tracks here that definitely made an impression with me were the heartfelt "The Man Who Called Himself Jesus", "Or Am I Dreaming?", the beautiful "Where Am I? / I'll Show You Where To Sleep" and "The Battle". Personnel: Dave Cousins & Tony Hooper - guitar & vocals, John Ford - bass & vocals, Rick Wakeman - keyboards, Alan Parker - guitar and Ronnie Verrell - drums. Should appeal to fans of Gentle Giant, Fairport Convention, Renaissance, Yes and Camel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great band April 17, 2014

Not the original recordings from the vinyl album so somewhat disappointed with what I received. I'd just love to find the Strawbs first album on CD. Thought this was it.

I grew up in the 1970s when Strawbs was in its most active period but somehow I overlooked this great band back then. I've recently rediscovered Strawbs and I'm gradually buying their albums.

This 1969 release was the first Strawbs album. I bought it recently without having heard it all the way through, but I was familiar with some of the tracks on it, such as The Battle, The Man Who Called Himself Jesus and Oh How She Changed. Those are all good tracks so I took a chance on the album expecting the rest of it to be similar.

Unfortunately the rest of this album sounds a bit dated. If you're a serious and dedicated Strawbs fan, buy this album for your collection; it's still a good album, despite sounding a bit dated. If you're not so serious and dedicated, or you're not overly familiar with Strawbs, I'd suggest giving this one a pass and getting Strawbs' 2CD compilation called Halcyon Days, which has all the best material from this album.

For those considering the mp3 version, I'd suggest downloading the following three tracks from this album: The Battle, The Man Who Called Himself Jesus and Oh How She Changed.
