I've been a fan of the Strawbs, the British folk- and progressive-rock group that got its start back in the 1960's, for as long as I can remember. Their 1974 album 'Hero and Heroine' produced this eight-minute-plus three-part rock classic, 'Autumn'.
Imagine my pleasure when this morning, while touring around YouTube looking for something else, I found this 'unplugged' version of 'Autumn' featuring the 'acoustic Strawbs' with a special guest, John Hawken, the keyboard player from the original version. It was recorded in September this year at the Strand Theater in Lakewood, NJ during their American tour. I love it!
The Strawbs are still as good as ever they were . . . and in honor of the season, I couldn't resist posting this here. Thanks for the music and the memories, guys!
