& The Blue Angel Orchestra - Boy in the Sailor Suit
Review by Gary Hill
I know most people think of the Strawbs as a progressive rock band. Surely some of their music is prog.

Secret Paths
Review by Julie Knispel
David Cousin’s expansive career has seen him shifting styles on a regular basis.  From the earliest days of the Strawberry Hill Boys (soon to be shortened to the Strawbs), Cousins has explored bluegrass, folk, rock, blues, and progressive rock styles...often shifting modes within a single album.

The Strawbs - Hero and Heroine
Review by Gary Hill
Perhaps The Strawbs biggest claim to fame (at least in the U.S.) was the fact that Rick Wakeman had at one time been part of their ensemble. Well, that was a very short tenure and The Strawbs have a long career and a lot of albums without him.

The Strawbs - Live At Nearfest 2004
Review by Gary Hill
This live show from prog rock legends The Strawbs has just been released on CD. Much of the disc seems to be more along the lines of folk music, but then again, The Strawbs had a definite folk side to them.

Review by Josh Turner
My assessment is mixed like a Strawberry Margarita. Come to think of it; I was told that there was a Strawberry Full Moon shining down on Shank Hall throughout this evening, and I don’t think I was being razzed about it.

The Strawbs - Strawbs
Review by Gary Hill

The Strawbs are an intriguing band. I know most people consider them progressive rock – and certainly some of their music qualifies. I put them in that category basically as a nod to general convention.

The Strawbs - The Ferryman's Curse
Review by Gary Hill

This band is certainly one of the founding pieces of the whole folk prog movement. This brand new album finds that they have lost nothing over the years.
