Strawbs Deep Cuts Dave Cousins CD
A re-mastered and expanded edition of the Strawbs’ classic 1976 studio release Deep Cuts.
 
Recorded at The Manor studio, Oxfordshire in the Spring and Summer of 1976, the album was the band’s first for the newly formed Oyster Records (established by Deep Purple member Roger Glover). For the recording sessions the line-up of Dave Cousins (vocals, acoustic guitars), Dave Lambert (vocals, electric guitars), Chas Cronk (bass, guitars, vocals) and Rod Coombes (drums) was augmented by Robert Kirby (mellotron, electric piano & French horn), John Mealing (keyboards) and Rupert Holmes (piano, harpsichord, clavinet, clarinet).
 
Deep Cuts is considered one of the finest later works by Strawbs, featuring many fine compositions written mainly by Dave Cousins and Chas Cronk.
Re-mastered from the original master tapes and featuring seven bonus tracks (including the shelved Blue Angelalong and a spoken word rendition of Beside the Rio Grande).
