#210 – Bursting At The Seam by Strawbs

I’ve never heard of these guys before, but I was immediately intrigued by both their music and their story.  They are basically the real life Spinal Tap.  By that, I don’t mean that they are comedic, but more that they were quite genre-fluid.  Originally a bluegrass band, they morphed into a folk act, then more of a progressive rock band and, finally, glam rock.  Their winding road eventually ended with the band divided on what musical direction to take, leading to their split.
