This is Steeleye Span’s first record. This is what Ashley Hutchings got involved in after he left Fairport Convention, and I just think it’s a terrific record. I love the songs on this record, and I love the fact that there are two female singers, Maddy Prior and Gay Woods. A really interesting collection of songs beautifully performed.

The band didn’t actually have a drummer but there are some drums on the record, so it’s a real folk-rock record. I love the sound of it, I love the harmonies, the musicianly skill involved.”
