The name of this band is simply 'Strawbs'. There is NO 'The Strawbs' of either Rock or Prog-Rock/Art Rock varieties. There is also no 'Acoustic Strawbs'. There is just Strawbs. Unfortunately, the iTunes folks have created 4 separate collections for Strawbs. The best way to find all their albums is to simply search for 'Strawbs' then work your way through the 4 categories.

In iTunes it's easy enough to call a band anything you want to. I just ran into this with "Steve Miller Band" and "The Steve Miller Band." Both names were used on their albums. I just hit Ctrl + A, grabbed 'em all, picked a name and fixed the info.

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 1968 by Ron...
