STRAWBS: PROGNOSTIC, October 2014

This is a new CD release of prog rock material by the Strawbs, due in October 2014. In a review in Rolling Stone in 1974, Ken Barnes wrote: "Strawbs moved from folkier days to a lush, stately and mellotron-dominated sound, with similarities to Yes, King Crimson and the Moody Blues. They wrote more compelling songs than the former two, and possessed more lyrical/musical substance than the latter."

'Prognostic' is the album that defines Strawbs once and for all as a prog rock force to be reckoned with. The music is powerful, yet melodic. The lyrics are biting, yet sensitive.

The release of 'Prognostic' ties in with the release of Dave Cousins' autobiography 'Exorcising Ghosts' which has committed reviews in Mojo, Classic Rock Prog, Uncut, Record Collector, Shindig, R2 and Froots. The album will receive full PR exposure in the major music press.
