Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote GHOSTS was one of the highest charting records stateside for the legendary progressive rock group led by singer-songwriter Dave Cousins. The 1975 album highlights the eclectic nature of the Strawbs, a band built on influences ranging from bluegrass to pop.
Muze PNote CD contains 1 bonus track.
Muze PNote Personnel: Dave Cousins (vocals, guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, banjo); Dave Lambert (vocals, guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar); Charles Cronk (acoustic guitar, bass guitar, background vocals); Claire Deniz (cello); John Hawken (piano, electric piano, harpsichord, organ, Mellotron, keyboards, Moog synthesizer); Rod Coombes (drums, congas, percussion, background vocals).
Muze PNote Arranger: The Strawbs.
Muze PNote Ghosts was the last album by the Strawbs to appear while the band was on its upward curve of commercial success; a more lyrical follow-up to Hero and Heroine, it was the group's last thrust at wide-audience appeal, with a hoped for-hit ("Lemon Pie") that didn't materialize. The group's mix of acoustic guitars, electric lead and bass, and Rod Coombes' heavy drumming was very compelling on this, their smoothest album. The title track introduction, mixing multiple overdubbed harpsichords, acoustic guitars, and church bells was a gorgeous beginning, and the melodies only got better further into the album. The hauntingly beautiful "Starshine/Angel Wine" was a magnificent successor to "Lay Down" off of Bursting at the Seams, with a moment of Led Zeppelin-like flash from Dave Lambert's playing in the break, while "The Life Auction" was a bigger, bolder follow-up to "The Hangman and the Papist." The original finale, "Grace Darling," is probably the prettiest tune Dave Cousins ever wrote. Alas, Ghosts would be the group's last record to be released before the changes in music -- with the introduction of punk rock in the middle of the '70s -- began hemming them in, and they never again put out an album with as much panache as this. Previously available on CD only from Japan, in 1998 Ghosts was reissued by A&M in England with a sharp, clean digital sound that greatly enhanced the rich textures of the playing, and one bonus track, Coombes' unexpectedly lyrical "Changes Arrange Us," which had previously been available only as a single B-side.
