Heartbreak Hill is a studio album by English band Strawbs. The album was recorded in 1978 but, due to record deal and management difficulties, was not released until 1995. The recording schedule conflicted with guitarist Dave Lambert's plans to record a solo album, so session musicians Jo Partridge and Miller Anderson were recruited to supply electric guitar.
The album was the first to feature keyboardist Andy Richards as part of the band line-up.
The Platinum CD edition of the album includes the track
The album was referred to in a Viz cartoon strip entitled "Spot The Clue with Tim Westwood". The strip was a detective story in which, in a bizarre twist, the killer was caught after claiming that they had been listening to a selection of vinyl LPs including Heartbreak Hill, which due to the various legal issues surrounding its release had not been issued on vinyl at the time the strip was published.
