The Strawbs: Live in Tokyo '75/Grave New World: the Movie (DVD)

The Strawbs

DVD Currently unavailable


In 1975, Strawbs played a televised gig in Tokyo that was the first show ever to be beamed out simultaneously across all of Japan's islands. The classic Hero & Heroine/Ghosts line-up with Cousins & Lambert plus Hawken, Cronk & Coombes really rocks on this show, & provide an opportunity for many who never saw that line-up perform live to relive those Halcyon days. Strawbs' epic album Grave New World was one of the first full-length rock videos, made in 1972, long before the ground-breaking 'Bohemian Rhapsody' & latterly MTV made it essential for single releases to have videos to accompany them.
