Bursting At The Seams is a music studio album recording by STRAWBS (Prog Folk/Progressive Rock) released in 1973 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. With this album, deception can only be around the bend, as Strawbs have taken yet another turn, this time heading to commercial radio-friendly tracks: Lay Down (on this album) then Part Of The Union. This album has a definitely country-ish sound (hinted with the closing track of Witchwood) and this fact never sits well with this writer.
Some copies include a ''tour book'' that advertises the album on the back. Matrix, Runout (Side A runout, etched): AMLH 68144 A B̶ 2 AT. Matrix, Runout (Side B runout, etched): AMLH 68144 B A̶ 2 AA. Other Versions (5 of 42) View All.
The 1998 remastering of the Strawbs' best album (A&M 5436-2 is the new catalog number) sports the finest sound of any of their CDs, which, by itself, would make this purchase worthwhile - the detailed notes and the presence of three bonus tracks - the shorter, punchier single version of "Lay Down," "Will Ye Go," and "Backside" . In all, in this version, Bursting at the Seams is the greatest Strawbs album of all, and the most overpowering.
