DEADLINES EXTENDED EDITION 2019
A re-mastered 3 disc expanded clamshell Boxed Set Edition comprising 2 CDs & DVD (NTSC / Region Free) of this 1977 Album by the Strawbs
There's a video on Facebook here.
To promote the album Strawbs made a memorable appearance on the BBC TV and Radio simulcast programme "Sight & Sound in Concert", aired in February 1978 (featuring recently recruited keyboard player Andy Richards in their ranks) where they performed a blistering 60 minute set of some material from "Deadlines" along with other classics such as 'Lay Down', 'Ghosts', 'Heartbreaker', 'Cut Like a Diamond', 'Round and Round' and 'Hero and Heroine'. This concert appears on both a CD and a DVD (NTSC/Region Free) in this set for the first time, re-mastered from the original BBC tapes.
