PROMOTION PACKS


STRAWBS PRESS PACK "LES STRAWBS"

This is certainly a collection of antiques and curios, which,given the inclusion of French language material was probably prepared for someone in France.

The most recent thing here appears to be a 1974 Strawbs biog (dated August 1974) which was updated for the 1975 Ghosts Press pack.
There's also a two page French biog "Les Strawbs" and a handwritten sheet about the French single "Part Of The Union".
A three page photocopy of some 1972 US material from Zoo World (yes, really!) to promote the Strawbs first US tour in 1972, and a review of Bursting At The Seams.
A photocopy of the Nov 1972 Melody Maker feature on the Strawbs, after Dave Lambert joined.

Also included:
1972 "glam" A&M promo 10x8 - not repeated here - see link
Grave New World biog "A Re-introduction to the Strawbs" - not repeated here - see link

The glossy black press pack itself is rather fine. Both front and back covers have a flap on the bottom, which fold up to show a cut out "A" and "M", and there's an ampersand printed in the middle of the inside to go between them. A stylish design idea.
