Performer Notes
  • The Strawbs' fourth album, 1971's FROM THE WITCHWOOD is the key transition point between the group's folk-rock roots and the more commercial pop sound of their later records, and is also the last to include Rick Wakeman's keyboards.
  • German remaster adds an extra song.
  • CD contains 1 bonus track.
  • This album was originally the weak link in the transition of the Strawbs from an acoustic folk-rock outfit to a progressive folk band, being neither fish nor fowl and suffering from an anemic mix. The 1998 British reissue (A&M 540-939-2), however, solves some inherent problems that plagued both the original vinyl edition and the first CD reissues. The new remastering toughens up the bass sound, and brings out more of the sheer power of Rick Wakeman's organ and synthesizer playing, accenting the harder side of the group's sound that was obviously there in the studio but lacking in the analog mix. "A Glimpse of Heaven" and "The Hangman and the Papist," in particular, benefit from the remastering, and "Sheep" finally has the musical fury to match its lyrics. Dave Cousins' voice also comes off as really close, and the effect is to make this a much more potent album than it previously seemed. Overall, it's now far easier to visualize this recording as the step leading to full-blown progressive rock releases such as Grave New World, which followed. The disc includes one bonus track, John Ford's "Keep the Devil Outside," which has an acoustic opening and a hard rock break and finale, which was cut at these same sessions, and which turned up months later as the B-side of "Benedictus," a single drawn from the next album. ~ Bruce Eder
Professional Reviews
The Wire (p.43) - "[The Strawbs] moved towards a form of Progressive pastoral rock that found perfect expression on the wild, wuthering songs of FROM THE WITCHWOOD."
