Review by Ben Miler
Along with Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span was one of the biggest names of British folk rock. Comparisons to Fairport are pretty common. For example, their vocalist, Maddy Prior often gets compared with Sandy Denny. The band even featured ex-Fairport bassist Ashley Hutchings for their first three albums. But unlike Fairport, Steeleye Span never touched on the West Coast style folk-rock the way Fairport did on their first three albums.
