Albenrezension

The 1998 remastering of the Strawbs' best album (A&M 540-936-2 is the new catalog number) sports the finest sound of any of their CDs, which, by itself, would make this purchase worthwhile — the detailed notes and the presence of three bonus tracks — the shorter, punchier single version of "Lay Down," "Will Ye Go," and "Backside" — only add to the enticements offered. Additionally, the song order has been changed to the correct one (on the LP, "The River" had to follow "Down By the Sea" to end the first side, because of its heavy bass part), but the main virtue is the sound, which is extraordinary — every instrument sounds as though it's miked directly into your speakers. The result is that Dave Lambert's heavy chording is so close that the record does come off closer in texture to a Who album at certain points than it does to the group's folk roots. But the kettle drums at the end of "Down By the Sea" also sound close, and you can practically hear the bowing on the strings. The bonus tracks are a treat: "Backside," a B-side "credited" to "Ciggy Barlust and the Whales from Venus" (which would have been Tits from Venus if not for the censors), is a pretty fair burlesque of "Space Oddity," et al.; and "Will Ye Go" is a version of "Wild Mountain Thyme" that is equal parts Dave Cousins' voice, acoustic harmonium, and heavy power chords and bass. In all, in this version, Bursting at the Seams is the greatest Strawbs album of all, and the most overpowering. [The Japanese edition of the album was the same as the 1998 remaster.]

One of the better British progressive bands of the early '70s, the Strawbs differed from their more successful compatriots — the Moody Blues, King Crimson, Pink Floyd — principally in that their sound originated in English folk music, rather than rock. Founded in 1967 as a bluegrass-based trio called the Strawberry Hill Boys by singer/guitarist Dave Cousins, the group at that time consisted of Cousins, guitarist/singer Tony Hooper, and mandolinist Arthur Phillips, who was replaced in...
