VARIOUS ARTISTS ALBUMS FEATURING STRAWBS - 2000s

1970s | 1980s | 1990s | 2000s | 2010 on | Festivals

Best TV Ads Ever cover BEST TV ADS EVER (2000)

A compilation of tracks used for advertising purposes. "Part Of The Union" appeared extensively on TV as part of a campaign for British insurance company Norwich Union, and hopefully Hud, John and the boys did nicely thank you of that. NU is in the process of changing its name to Aviva so no more licensing revenue from that source, sadly.

    Speaking Volumes, SVL 08CD

    Huntingdon Hall in Worcester has been a regular stopping off point for both electric and acoustic Strawbs in recent years, as its interior decor is a perfect backdrop for Dave Cousins' music - I saw "Hangman" sung there in front of the huge church organ. Chris Jaeger runs the venue, as well as Speaking Volumes, which has been the Acoustic Strawbs' booking agent now for a while.

    The third volume of collected tracks by artists who've played the venue, some live, some lifted from albums, includes "You And I (When We Were Young)", which is lifted from Baroque & Roll.
