Yesterday, one of the original members of the Strawbs, Tony Hooper, passed away. I only met him the once, he took the trouble to come to a gig during which we played some of their songs - came to see us at half time and was really positive about what we were doing and our versions of the songs. A thoroughly decent human being . This video features him on vocals. RIP Tony.

I've never heard of these guys, but just had a solid listen here. The vocal is fantastic, really beautiful harmonies. I would think it not so easy to pull off live. That's a great memory too. I'll have to check this out a little more

Definitely difficult to pull off live as we proved... NB I am hiding in the background on keys. https://youtu.be/uC5E2VD4mkE

This album Grave New World is my favourite of theirs, but also - From the Witchwood (with Rick Wakeman), Hero and Heroine, Ghosts, and Bursting at the Seams are worth listening to...

Yes, I see you back there on the keys. I would argue that you guys pulled it off brilliantly. That is beautiful actually. I'm going to check out those albums you referenced
