Yes, a beautiful blend.

And Miller Anderson! And Roger Glover! And some great songs! I rank it higher than most of the Strawbs records that came after, but I'd say at very least you should have all the A&M albums (I'm the rare person that prefers Nomadness to Ghosts - very poppy album (for them).

Incidentally, I don't know if everybody knew that John Paul Jones played (some) bass on The Strawbs first eponymous album

I think so.

We've done some, but not all of the classic run.

I'm sure this will be remedied over the coming year or two. :D
