THE BATTLE (2LP), 2019
A Collection of Rare Live Performances and BBC Sessions (1968-1972)

A collection of early Strawbs session and live recordings (mainly lifted from the BBC, but some from the Antiques Universal CD release and the Witchwood Media Recollection release). Very nicely presented - the album labels match the A&M 1972 style tan/brown typography. The sleeve back cover has lots of small pictures of posters/10x8s, obviously plundered from Strawbsweb, and the 1970 pictures from Recollection.
