NEW STRAWBS ALBUM IN NOVEMBER
PRE-ORDERING NOW OPEN

Here's the draft front cover of the new album from Strawbs, expected in November. "The Ferryman's Curse" is a sequel to the epic "Vision Of The Lady Of The Lake" from Dragonfly.

There'll also be Dave Lambert's "The Ten Commandments" which the Acoustic Strawbs used to perform when Brian Willoughby was part of the line-up, and "Bats And Shadows", which I heard in a partially finished form, performed solo by Dave on acoustic. Other new songs are likely to include:
The Nails From The Hands Of Christ
The Song Of Infinite Sadness
When The Spirit Moves
The Familiarity Of Old Lovers
We Have The Power

Pre-ordering is now available - visit the album page for details. Those who preorder before 5.pm UK time on 8 Sept will have their name included in the CD booklet in the usual way.


MARCH ELECTRIC STRAWBS TOUR A TRIUMPH
MORE UK DATES TO COME IN OCTOBER, US IN NOVEMBER!!

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 - a tour to remember! I caught the last four, including Hailsham which may just have been the best Strawbs gig I ever saw!

More UK electric dates to come in October - see tour dates page.

Some US electric dates now announced for November - see tour dates page.


MORE ACOUSTIC GIGS ANNOUNCED

More acoustic dates over the summer - see tour dates page.


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.
