Considering the broad spectrum of sounds encompassed on this double-length anthology of The Strawbs' time on A&M Records (i.e. their heyday), it's hard to believe that Halcyon Days only documents a six-year span. From the post-Dylan folk-rock of their 1969 debut album ("The Man Who Called Himself Jesus") to the Moody Blues–esque, psychedelia-tinged "The Weary Song" and beyond, we follow the band's rapid evolution step by step. By the time The Strawbs' prog-rock side pops up on tunes like "A Glimpse of Heaven" (complete with future Yes man Rick Wakeman on keyboards), it's obvious that this band placed a premium on forward momentum.
