Strawbs is the debut studio album by English band Strawbs. Benedictus" is a song by English band Strawbs featured on their 1972 album Grave New World. After the departure of Rick Wakeman, band leader Dave Cousins consulted the I Ching asking what to do next. The answer from the coins, "Humble must he constant be, where the paths of wisdom lead, distant is the shadow of the setting sun", forms part of the first two lines of the lyrics of the song. Unusually for a rock song, the instrumental break is performed using a dulcimer played through a fuzz box. The resulting sound is often mistaken for an electric guitar.

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music(10%). Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection(10%). The first cut is the deepest. After the excellent "Ghosts", the following "Nomadness" was rather disappointing. Another one of these horrible late 70's Strawbs album that ruined the group's early legend from a folk group to a folk rock group than a prog folk group that culminated with Witchwood's stellar series of poignant songs. In retrospect of course, it could appear that Wakeman's short passage in the band might have given the band the best of themselves, but ultimately they couldn't really cope with his departure, although it would be unfair to point at his replacement Blue Weaver.
Ghosts was the last album by the Strawbs to appear while the band was on its upward curve of commercial success; a more lyrical follow-up to Hero and Heroine, it was the group's last thrust at wide-audience appeal, with a hoped for-hit ("Lemon Pie") that didn't materialize. The group's mix of acoustic guitars, electric lead and bass, and Rod Coombes' heavy drumming was very compelling on this, their smoothest album
