Rana who SHOULD be working Is this really a Steeleye Span Record? (18) RE: Is this really a Syeeleye Span Record ? 07 Jun 00


With your argument they should have changed the name after the first lp when the Woods' left, or after Martin Carthy left, or after Ashley Hutchings (who founded the group) left or ...

Line-up's change and so does the sound of a group - sometimes for better, or sometimes for worse - depending on taste. The Steeleye Span line-ups I like probably differ from those you like - I prefer the earlier line-ups. Clearly you like the sound featuring Maddy Prior. It is unfortunate that you couldn't hear the CD before buying it and deciding that way but when personel change the sound may change - especially with regards to the vocalist which may be the dominant part of the sound. So your best bet is to enjoy the other projects Maddy has been involved with and be a bit wary on future Span releases. As I said in an earlier post I haven't heard the CD in question, but I recall seeing some favouarable reviews.

Cheers Rana
