Recorded in 1991 during Maddy Prior's final tour with the British folk-rock supergroup, TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT is one of the finest of the several Steeleye Span live records. Recorded with a simple five-person lineup of Prior, guitarist Bob Johnson, fiddler Peter Knight, bassist Tim Harries and fabulously-named drummer Liam Genockey, the arrangements are neither as traditional and spartan as some Steeleye Span records have been--see 1971's TEN MAN MOP--nor as rock-oriented as others, such as 1975's ALL AROUND MY HAT, whose wonderful title track is given a simply gorgeous reinterpretation here. The rest of the dozen tunes span all of Steeleye's Span's previous 16 albums from the last 21 years.
