Steeleye Span - The Best of LP 2002

In another bizarre twist of fate I find myself in the car listening to the best of Steeleye Span. I have no recollection of ordering it, but nevertheless it arrived through to post and rather than send it back I decided to give it a go. It’s 1970’s commercial folk with a touch of the hey nonny nonnies and most of it gets the instant flick on the CD player, but Maddy Prior’s vocals are at times stunning and I can’t help but keep returning to tracks like 'Gaudete', 'Royal Forester' and 'All Around My Hat'. It hardly warrants five stars, but not an altogether unpleasant experience after all.
