Thread Name: Steeleye Span Your Favorite Period
Subject: RE: Steeleye Span Your Favorite Period
I really like the first five or six albums but I've a soft spot for the 'All Around My Hat' album too as I loved the title track when I was junior school and it's great for a nostalgia fest.

One thing I've never liked about Steeleye Span's stuff is some of the guitars. My taste in music is pretty eclectic and involves a lot of fairly heavy guitar (I'm listening to Mastadon as I'm writing this), but some of the guitar effects makes me wince. 'One Misty Moist Morning' would have been 500% better if it wasn't for the bizarre wah-wah and the 'it goes up to 11' ending of 'Alison Gross' just ruins it for me.
