Steeleye Span - Hark! The Village Wait

The first album from Steeleye Span, this was released in 1970. It's perhaps more acoustic and traditionally driven than the discs that followed it.

Review by Gary Hill

This is Steeleye Span's second disc, released in 1971. As much as I enjoy the first album, I'd say that this one elevates things a bit.

Review by Gary Hill

Steeleye Span's third album, this was released in 1971 (and was their second release that year). I think this is proggier than the first two.
