STRAWBS - LIVE AT UNDER THE BRIDGE - SUN 29 OCT

The Strawbs have organised a London show at the iconic Under The Bridge venue at Chelsea FC football ground in Fulham. The show takes place on Sun 29 Oct at the end of the UK tour - you owe it to yourself to see this line-up before they depart for the US. There's a state of the art sound system, a fantastic stage setting and a quality band which truly deserves such great treatment. I've seen 6 of the gigs so far, and the new material is superb, along with faultless versions of some of the classic Strawbs tracks. It's NOT a folk gig for sure, with power, prog and pathos in abundance. This is the launch gig for the stunning new album The Ferryman's Curse, which is released in early November. Gig details below.

HUDSON FORD NEWS

HUDSON FORD BOXED SET

There's a new review of the boxed set by Lindsay Sorrell, and an interview with Hud here.

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 includes 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.
