Playing this now. I bought it when it came out.
I was out at Acoustic Strawbs last night.

Would it have been better with a dash of guitar?
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

Maybe. Maybe not

I love it as it is and Chris's bass makes up for it.

How were the Strawbs? [same line-up?]

I bought this when it was released and loved it. The only two solo Yes albums I truly loved were this and Howe's second album and though my love for Howe's album faded, it has never happened with Squier's. His interplay with Bruford was superb.

Strawbs were Cousins, Cronk and Lambert, all playing acoustic guitars or occasional banjo. They were fine, lots of between song chat from DC. Set included Autumn / The Winter Long, Ghosts, Hangman, Tears & Pavan, Man Who Called Himself Jesus, New World, Lay Down, Shine On Silver Sun, Simple Visions. It would have been better with a full band but you can’t have everything!
