The illustartion is a damselfly

Damselflies, which are similar in structure, though usually lighter in build; however, the wings of most dragonflies are held flat and away from the body, while damselflies hold the wings folded at rest, along or above the abdomen.

well, i did spot the wing problem. mwhahaha.

one of my happiest childhood memories: my brother john (he was two years older) and me runnin around like crazies in the backyard, catching dragonflies, scores of em, in my dad's old bait buckets... then we'd let em all go. they fluttered everywhere. they'd land on yer nose.

Yes, the recording and production are first-rate.


Absolutely!!

And a keys based tune for more contrast to round out the album.

Lyrics to this are on the Tamsenesque side - he might be a tad more subtle, but it's close.

And there it is.

The best Strawbs album in 43 years. Who would've thought?

Uplifting end to a great album.






And to think I nearly missed out - I've signed up to a free trial to Amazon Music to access this album. Glad I did, it's a very classy album.







Thanks to all for the excellent suggestion (N & K?) and of course for the company.
