Bomberboy's current selection is:
Hero & Heroine
by The Strawbs
The Strawbs were amazingly formed in 1964 and started as a bluegrass group before transition via folk rock to Progressive

They had had a (almost) novelty hit with “Part of The Union” in 1973 and the excellent “Lay Down” both from the album Bursting at the seams but during a US tour the band imploded and what was left was de facto Band leader Dave Cousins and Dave Lambert who rebuilt the band and set about recording their next LP which was their 8th (and released after an earlier LP recorded in 1969 “All Our Own Work” was issued to fill a gap)

The new band went almost Prog on this album and it was received much better in the uSA than in thier native country

This single was the second released from it The song has a bluegrass/folky feel interspersed with power chords and, yes Mellotron and loads of it! It didn’t appear to chart anywhere

The band Dave Cousins – vocals, acoustic guitar
Dave Lambert – electric guitar
Chas Cronk – bass guitar
John Hawken – mellotron, organ
Rod Coombes – drums
1974 - United Kingdom - From The Album Hero & Heroine
