A&M, 1970 (Holland, Germany only)

Where is this dream

  • German release
  • "Where Is This Dream Of Your Youth" first appeared on Strawbs' first album, but the version which appears on most compilations and the two European single releases was the Rick Wakeman keyboard workout which closed Strawbs set at the QEH in July 1970, the concert which brought Rick to national prominence as the next great keyboard wizard, and which appears on the album released from the concert, Just A Collection Of Antiques and Curios.


    Non-UK Releases

    US release? (*)

    "Where Is This Dream Of Your Youth"
    (1242, A&M, 1971)

    The website On A&M Records lists this with no B-side (so probably a Part 1/Part 2 release like the German release below), a US release catalogue number and a 1971 release date. Never seen one so it may not have made it out the door.

    Dutch release

    "Where Is This Dream Of Your Youth"/"Fingertips"
    (10009AT, A&M, no date)

    The cover, pictured above, is a wraparound, like the old Sonet releases. Though no date is mentioned on the single itself, the text on the cover makes it clear that this was released after the album Antiques And Curios and probably in 1971.

    Although there's nothing to tell us that this is the case, the single is an edited version of the track, fading out in the middle.



    German release

    "Where Is This Dream Of Your Youth part 1"/"Where Is This Dream Of Your Youth part 2"
    (10037AT, A&M, no date)

    No clues at all as to date other than the label number which is later than the Dutch version above (later parallel single releases by A&M in different European countries often had the same or similar label numbers). Probably 1971.

    Releasing this as two sides of a single is hardly very satisfactory, the edit coming in the middle.
