Product Description:

Steeleye Span's 15th album is yet another excellent collection of rocked-up traditional-style British folk songs. While the group's later albums don't hold the surprise of earlier classics like HARK! THE VILLAGE WAIT or PLEASE TO SEE THE KING, they're nonetheless remarkable. The bell-toned voice of lead singer Maddy Prior is one of the most distinctive and wonderful in British folk, up there with Sandy Denny, Norma Waterson and Prior's occasional collaborator June Tabor.
Prior's vocals dominate these 11 songs, but the distinctive fiddle of Peter Knight is equally impressive. Highlights here include the murder ballad "Jack Hall" and an impressive version of the hoary standby "The Fox." If you don't like Steeleye Span, TEMPTED AND TRIED won't change your mind, but fans should adore it.
