Witchwood Media, 2002

The fantastic 30th anniversary concert staged in the grounds of Chiswick House in West London was captured both on audio and video for posterity. A selection of tracks came out on CD in 2000 as The Complete Strawbs, and now in 2002, comes the DVD release, with a striking cover designed by Rod Green.

By popular request, "Blue Angel" has been included on the DVD as a bonus track, and Dave has produced a special item in which he talks about the concert. There's also a sneak preview of the Strawbs' next DVD on Witchwood Media - a full length concert in Tokyo by the "Ghosts"-era band, first recorded and transmitted in Japan in 1975.
