Subject: RE: Steeleyspan Your Favorite Period
We toured Australia with them in 1980 when they released Sails of Silver. I may be biased by the memories but I've always loved that album. Otherwise, I go back to Hark, the village wait as second favourite. I don't really agree that their later stuff was in any way bad. They went through several evolutions and the music was a reflection of it. Of course, if you are expecting them to sound like something and they change on you, it can take some getting used to.
