GREATEST HITS LIVE
Castle Music Pictures, 1992

Central Music's "Bedrock" series (so-called as it was designed for late-night viewing) was intended as a showcase for the best of classic British rock music. Some of the shows were released on CD and video, ususally by the artists themselves or the labels associated with them. (In 2001, Classic Rock Legends gathered these together for a major series covering a range of key bands and this was re-issued as Classic Rock Legends.

The Strawbs' concert in this series (also released on CD, also as Greatest Hits Live) was a 1990 gig, featuring the line up with Dave Cousins, Tony Hooper, Brian Willoughby, Hud, Rod Demick and Chris Parren (which played for about 7 years from 1986 through to 1992) and the concert is of excellent quality.

This version of the video is no longer available, but the Classic Rock Legends re-issue is thought to be available in VHS format also.
