Welcome to the website dedicated to the music of Strawhead.

Their legacy continues to enjoy a loyal following around the world - as a tribute to it all they present.............
The Compleat STRAWHEAD....
.... a hard backed CD album sized book , tracing the history of the band in a scrapbook style.
Inside its covers are two discs encompassing the complete recorded history of the band.
These include over 300 tracks ranging from the first album in 1977 to the final one in 2010.
In essence, the albums include those made at Tradition Sound Recordings, unavailable for many years, the Dragon Records albums, and those made at Cock Robin Music in the later years.
One album, Argent , along with sundry other tracks, could not be regarded as 'Popular Music of the Olden Time', so this appears as an audio CD entitled ' Popular Music of the Modern Time'.
All the other albums are on the other disc entitled ' Popular Music of the Olden Time', which is an Audio DVD, each track being in mp3 format. *
All this is topped off with a 320 page pdf book, on the Audio DVD, containing all the words amd sources of the songs, with images of all album covers and inserts..
All in all a monumental and definitve album you should not miss.
The Compleat STRAWHEAD costs £30.00 GBP inc UK P & P
