Woolly Wolstenholme Barclay James Harvest Strange Worlds boxset
Strange Worlds - A Collection 1980 – 2010 is a 7CD box set containing every album by Barclay James Harvest founder Woolly Wolstenholme and his band Maestoso
 
In addition to the official solo albums  - all of which have been unavailable for some years - the set features a 20 track CD called The Unlost Works – Demos & Fragments, which consists of previously unreleased recordings. 
 
The clamshell box includes an illustrated book with a 2018 essay written by BJH authorities Keith and Monika Domone. 
 
A fitting tribute to the multi-faceted music of the much-missed Stuart “Woolly” Wolstenholme.
