MARCH ELECTRIC STRAWBS TOUR A TRIUMPH - MORE TO COME !!

A cracking start at the fabulous Worthing Pier venue, suspended over the incoming tide - a true case of "Down By The Sea". Strawbs were powerful and polished, as though they had just got back from last year's US tour. For a full review and pix, see the March tour pages.

Comments and pix now in for lots of the shows. I caught the last four, including Hailsham which may just have been the best Strawbs gig I ever saw!

HUDSON FORD NEWS

HUDSON FORD BOXED SET

Released 5 May. You can order at Amazon:: https://www.amazon.co.uk/M-Albums-Hudson-Ford/dp/B06XHBGZ6Z

For a long time we have been waiting for Hudson Ford, an important part of the Strawbs story, to be released on CD. There have been some bootlegs, some Japanese card sleeve releases, but now there are firm plans for a proper boxed set release of the three A&M records, with bonus tracks, released by Caroline International. As well as the three albums, the boxed set will include non-album single B-sides and other unreleased tracks (such as "When The Lights Go Out" which was only ever on the Repertoire sampler). Sleeve notes by me.
