Thread Name: Steeleye Span Your Favorite Period
Subject: RE: Steeleyspan Your Favorite Period
Hmmmmmmm - tricky one this. Every album has been different, with a different Steeleye sound to it. Even the use of a Junior School Choir or Peter Sellers guesting on uke added to the sound, although I think Now We are Six probably one of the weaker ones.
As to absolute fave - toss up between Hark, The Village Wait and Parcel of Rogues. But, there again, I haven't yet listened to Babylon - and while the line up was different, they were every bit as good in Derby last year as they were in Sheffield back in 1974.
