Gaudete, or maybe Padstow. I got to hear them do that one the last time they were in town. They were at the Carnegie Music Hall, where the accoustics are wonderful. (Andrew Carnegie brought Lillian Russell in to test them!) Maddie Pryor danced around the hall belting that wonderful song. It was unbelievable.

                   I would love to hear a Steel Eyed Span cd that was all the original crew without the rock additions. ( I know that misses the point but I still would love to hear them in a realy traditional setting. I loved Matty Pior doing The blacksmith all alone > THat nice early duo record of Matty and Tim was great as was the Silly Sister cd's ( I agree John) .   All the best to all here, Guy

I saw them live in Melbourne in the early 80s in their folk rock incarnation. "Let Her Go Down" really stopped the show & remains my favourite to this day, followed by "Demon Lover" & "Parcel of Rogues".

Hark the Village Wait. The first and arguably still the best as an album.

Anyone heard Individually Collectively Steeleye Span. A little known album on Mad Hatter label. Someone borrowed mine and I can't find a replacement but it contains songs by the individual members and songs done collectively by Steeleye. Brilliant.!

Their version of Tam Lin is really good; they based the melodies and rhythms on something Bulgarian, having learned that the story has analogues there.

Another vote for King Henry, which I sing frequently. Thirty years ago, a friend said, "Just listen to this, never mind the arrangement." and played me King Henry on Below the Salt. It was the first time I had heard Steeleye. No, I don't like the arrangements, but they have recorded some rare ballads that no one else does.

TAM LIN!!!!! the song the changed my life when i was eleven, got me singing while i washed dishes and thinking about where ballads come from. such killer cello in part three and maddy's voice! my vote goes out to the weaver, also maddy's killer version of pirate jenny. her voice and tim hart's blend so nicely together, i am also a big fan of their album together 'summer solstice'.

'Padstow' because I love Cornwall.

'Shaking of the Sheets' because I love the Black Joke in the middle. My daughter at the age of 10 could play that really well on her fiddle. She's now 20 and playing/recording with Al Jones of 'Blackfoot Sue' fame. Anyone remember them?

I like too many to think about a specific one.
The only album I did not buy was "Rocket Cottage" I thought it was crap at the time. I wish I had bought it now.
Now we are Six, Below the Salt are a couple of favourites.
Picked up a compilation recently with Maddy doing "Twanky Dillo" with just a drum accompanyment absolutely brilliant.
"Somewhere Along the Road" is one of my favourites, although that is just Maddy I think not SES. Rick Kemp did write it though.

jOhn from hull posts to threads all the time, and his spelling, grammar, punctuation are always uniformly terrible. The thing is, I reckon he's doing a Ronnie Barker. He doesn't have a stutter, but in Open all Hours he did a really convincing one - so jOhn is winding y'all up most righteously. Now there's another John from Hull who can't string a bloody sentence together, and he's Deputy Prime Minister!
So let jOhn from hull get on with it - I reckon he's a comical genius, making fools of everyone who despairs of his written English. Good on you, jOhn - a more convincing impression of a dyslexic you'd never want to see.
p.s. On the subject of the thread, I'd say "All things are quite silent". a.w.
