Dave Cousins - Not All The Flowers Grow

Dave's heartbreaking song inspired by the awful Aberfan disaster, 40 years ago on 21 Oct 1966, in which a school was engulfed by a mining waste tip, and many children died.

Strawbs - The Battle

A live session recording of this song, currently appearing again in the Acoustic Strawbs' live show. This session brought together future Strawbs Claire Deniz (cello) and a fledgling Rick Wakeman (keyboards).

Dave Cousins - Out In The Cold (Demo)

Dave has often reminded us how the Strawbs classics were written, simply, on acoustic guitar or piano - here's an example ....

Dave Cousins - The Merchant Adventurer (Demo)

Another demo from Dave, this time of an unreleased sing, demoed for Deep Cuts but not pursued. Damn catchy IMHO (can't get it out of my head at present )...

Strawbs - Blue Angel

The first set of sessions for Deep Cuts, produced by Tom Allom, produced this Strawbs version of Dave's "Blue Angel", regarded by many as one of his most impressive songs, which was abandoned as the band moved on to the Rupert Holmes/Jeffrey Lesser sessions.
