From the Witchwood" marked the start of the Strawbs transition in earnest from a primarily acoustic folk based band, to a prog rock orientated band with strong folk influences. The album represents Rick Wakeman's last venture with the Strawbs, before he was headhunted by Yes. In retrospect, his keyboard skills whilst apparent, were somewhat suppressed in the Strawbs, with only brief displays of his virtuosity such as those on "Sheep" and "Glimpse of heaven". It was perhaps inevitable that when the opportunity arose, he would move on to a band where he would.

From the Witchwood is the fourth album by English band Strawbs. It was recorded at Air Studios, London during February and March 1971 and reached number 39 in the UK Album Charts. The album is the third and final album to include Rick Wakeman, including his appearance as a session musician on the 1970 album Dragonfly. All tracks written by Dave Cousins, except where noted.

From The Witchwood ‎(LP, Album, RE). A&M Records. Great progressive album by UK prog folk classic rock band. It is also the key transition point between the group's folk rock roots to the more prog folk direction which fits well with the old YES, GENESIS, KING CRIMSON. This great album was produced by Tony Visconti and it features Dave Cousins and Rick Wakemen (just before he departed to join YES). Reply Notify me Helpful.

From The Witchwood is the third studio album of The Strawbs, or their fourth album if we consider their debut live album Just A Collection Of Antiques And Curious, and was released in 1971. The line up on the album is Dave Cousins, Tony Hooper, Rick Wakeman, John Ford and Richard Hudson. From The Witchwood represents a landmark for the band.

The Strawbs shuffle off the ISB moniker and emerge on the next three songs - the impossibly pretty "Witchwood" and "Thirty Days" and the Fab-Four Acid-Folk of "Flight" - a song on which they sound like The Beatles in 1967 as they've just discovered Magic Mushrooms in a studio full of Acoustic Instruments. It was recorded during the "Witchwood" sessions but was only released as the B-side of "Benedictus," a single from the 1972 "Grave New World" album, with which "From the Witchwood" has the most in common.
