A Taste Of Strawbs is the long awaited boxed set from the Strawbs, due for release 13 November 2006.

It's been a mammoth project for Dave Cousins, even with some assistance from me. The vision behind it is to include many of the classic Strawbs songs that ought to be in a Strawbs boxed set, but virtually none of the versions that even devout fans will currently have in their collection. Accordingly it is sourced from the Strawbs' own archives and other sources - unreleased songs, demo versions, alternate mixes, live material. It's been an absolute joy to be involved in this process, and I'm truly delighted with the result.

CD1: "Eyes Wide Open" (1966–1971): The Strawberry Hill Boys to Sandy Denny and the Strawbs. Then the Strawbs go electric as Rick Wakeman joins the band.

CD2: "Changing Places" (1972–1974): High flying singles and albums in the UK and North America.

CD3: "Inside Out" (1975–1988): Strawbs go their separate ways for a while, but Wakeman brings them back together. Success at the Cambridge Folk Festival spawns a network TV documentary and concert. Wakeman and Cousins appear together in concert.

CD4 "Further Down The Road" (1990–2006): 25th Anniversary tour - Don Airey on keyboards. The Chiswick House concert. Wakeman and Cousins record again. Strawbs Acoustic reinvent the band. Strawbs headline major festivals.

CD5 "Tastebuds" bonus disc included in first 1000 copies
