The Strawbs: From The Witchwood (A&M)

Jonh Ingham, Rolling Stone, 25 November 1971

THE STRAWBS started out as a bluegrass duo, went through incarnations with Sandy Denny in her pre-Fairport days and a cellist from Sadler's Wells Opera Company, and now pose as a folk/rock group via the aid of bassist John Ford and drummer Richard Hudson from Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera, and keyboard virtuoso Rick Wakeman, since departed for Yes.
