It automatically invites comparison to the original line up and album. Some people may not care for the idea. But I have listened to the album a few times and I think that this is a cracking good line up of great musicians, and a great recording of a classic Strawbs album.
The original album was made during the bands early heyday. It did well in the US but not so well in the UK. But generally it is still accepted as one of those albums from the Strawbs early and successful period. The line up had been different to their earlier album "Bursting at the seams" and the style of song writing is also different. There is a more grittier and straight talking delivery with dark subjects. There is a powerful rock gothic feel and the whole album is epic. The line up consisted of Cousins, Lambert, Cronk, Hawken and Coombes.
This re recording begins with a wonderful "prologue" which is actually Dave singing extracts from "Lay a little light on me" with mild synthesiser sound. This blends into "Autumn" (which is where the original album began) with its three wonderful parts, -Heroines Theme, Deep summer sleep, and The Winter Long. The whole re recording of this track is excellent. The strength, emotion, power and beauty all shine through. The next five songs "Sad young man", "Just Love", "Shine on silver sun", "Hero and Heroine" and "Midnight sun" also follows the same running order as the original album. Each track is expertly handled.Read more ›
All the members of the H&H lineup have influenced me and many other US artists. It is safe to say that David Cousins will never get near the credit he deserves for his role in the rock evolution.
Thank you to the entire Strawbs family for writing and playing some the most unashamedly beautiful and haunting music.Hero and Heroine In Ascencia
The original recording is a masterwork. Both CDs will be enjoyed together.Hero And Heroine

The original Hero and Heroine was an absolute classic. I cannot see the point of this recording and it offers nothing of substance which justifies the project. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Alan Paling

This CD was a great disappointment. I have the original recording of Hero & Heroine and saw Strawbs in concert back around 1970 something. Read morePublished on 6 July 2011 by Rick Zuber
