Subject: RE: Steeleye Span Your Favorite Period
That's one of the things I've always liked about them. They seemed like they'd rather have been a rock band than a folk band. I thought that was their only album. It wouldn't have bothered me either way, because I thought it was so good. I was so pleased when I found loads, then tons of Maddy's solo stuff which I'd shied away from before.
I wish they'd record the other version of 'Bright Morning Star' [i]("oh where are our dear fathers")[/i] .etc -– I don't have 'Winter' because I don't see the point of a cd you'll only play once a year. I've heard Steeleye are touring next year & can't wait (even though I don't know whether I can actually get there or not!) , but I really don't think they'll make a new album now. I could be wrong, & I hope I am!
