The first issue concentrates on a lengthy review of the first album, illustrated with some great not seen before pictures, and an interview with Tony Hooper. Also included are reviews of the new Ringing Down The Years CD and the Preserves Uncanned cassette edition from Dirty Linen, Cousins & Willoughby and Strawbs live reviews, and a feature about the Strawbs' day jobs.
I have been asked by the late Tony Hooper's family to post Tony's correct date of birth, 7 Sep 1939, rather than 1943. (This is no doubt based on an early A&M press pack. No doubt pop managers in the 60s thought pop fans would lose interest if their idols were that much older than they were, and anyway this pop thing would never last ....)
