    "Part Of The Union" is the opening track, and Rod Coombes plays on Stealer's Wheel's "Late Again". There's a track from Juicy Lucy, of which Coombes was also a member, but I don't think he played on that.

    (National Lampoon, US 1974)

    This is a mix of music, political satire and comedy: "This album features cuts from artists whose albums are advertised in the National Lampoon and is intended for promotional use only. NOT FOR SALE". "Hero And Heroine" is the featured Strawbs track, and Rick Wakeman plays on David Bowie's "Changes".

    A Norwegian sampler, with both Hudson Ford's "Free Spirit" and Strawbs' "The Winter Long". With cracking tracks from labelmates Supertramp, Gallagher & Lyle and the Ozarks (all of which are favourites of mine), it's a good buy.

    (8LP, Readers Digest, 1975)

    Eight LP set of greatest hits starting with Volume 1, the Fifties, with each subsequent LP covering a two year span. A patchy collection, some good stuff but some cheesy rubbish as well - volume 8 for 1972-1973 includes "Part Of The Union". For sleeve notes on the Strawbs, click on the thumbnail below.

    Track listing, Vol 8, 1972-1973 only

    (A&M Israel, SP8371, 1976)

  • cover TAKRL ANTHOLOGY BOZO 1

    (white label copy, 1976)

    The Strawbs track here is a not terribly high quality live version of "Lay Down", source uncertain, not one I'm familiar with (pretty certain it's not either of the BBC transcription disc recordings in 1973/1974), so it may be something hitherto unreleased. Dave Lambert's vocal very high in the mix, making the chorus a clear duet. From the cymbals, I'm guess it was the Hero And Heroine band on this.

    Sleeve notes run: "Although unfortunately never then issues, this collection was originally prepared in 1976 by the late Dr Terrence H "Telly" Fone. This edition was re-edited by Art Knuvo and Deek Kibard from the Doctor's original manuscripts and re-recorded and mastered from the original tapes by Sparko Time. Thanks to Roy N Oak for the cover..."
