Later years
The 1980s Virgin singles and up to date with a few more recent releases

I always swore I wouldn't get caught up collecting singles ... but it's insidiously easy to get started. Many of the Strawbs' B-sides don't appear on album, so you have to get those. And those Japanese releases are always so nicely produced.... before you know it you're hooked, spending your time on eBay, Gemm or Discogs buying strange promo copies of "Part Of The Union" and paying out cash dollars, Yen or Yugoslav dinar hand over fist.

In this section you'll find scans and other info on all the single releases known to me (most of which I now own). Where pictures are featured, you can click on them to see a larger version and read the detail. If there are any corrections or missing items, please contact
