Recollection is a live album by Strawbs. The tracks were recorded in 1970 on a tour supporting Roy Harper just prior to the concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall (the recordings from this concert were released as the album Just a Collection of Antiques and Curios).

This incarnation of the band had only rehearsed together for a couple of weeks. The recording is the first made with Rick Wakeman, John Ford and Richard Hudson in the line-up and features live re-workings of songs from the Strawbs and Dragonfly albums as well as alternative recordings of some of the Antiques and Curios songs.
