"Blue Angel" is a studio album by English band Strawbs. It was the first Strawbs album to contain new material for 12 years and featured several different line-ups of musicians from past Strawbs eras. Welsh folk-singer Mary Hopkin featured on many tracks, continuing a working partnership established by Dave Cousins and Brian Willoughby on their album "The Bridge", from which several of the tracks on this album are drawn.

The track "Blue Angel" is a rearrangement of the track which appears on Dave Cousins' first solo album "Two Weeks Last Summer". "Lay Down" is a re-recorded version of the hit single from "Bursting at the Seams".
