Essential: a masterpiece of progressive folk music
This is the great Steeleye Span's fourth studio album and in addition to furthering their lovely communion of traditional British folk and blustery hard blues, it was the first release without founder/bassist Ashley Hutchings.
Excellent addition to any rock music collection.
Steeleye Span's third album "Ten Man Mop Or Mr. Reservoir Butler Rides Again" from 1971 is the only seventies album by this group I do not have in my collection. Here contribute Maddy Prior(vocals, spoons, tabor), Tim Hart (organ, dulcimer, banjo, guitar, mandolin, vocals), Peter Knight (fiddle, mandolin, violin, tympani, tenor banjo, keyboard, vocals), Martin Carthy (organ, guitar, vocals) and Ashley Hutchings (bass). They had no drummer and that is something I like with early Steeleye Span.
Alex Hutchings has never opened up and taught any of his biggest playing secrets (infact he has never done any video teaching content at all!!)….UNTIL NOW! In this world exclusive package Alex will teach you his deepest secrets….and not just by playing….but also talking you through in lesson format. All you need to do is choose Deluxe!
”Rosie” is the eighth studio album by folk-rock outfit Fairport Convention, released in 1973. The album was the first to feature Australian singer-songwriter guitarist Trevor Lucas and American lead guitarist Jerry Donahue. Both had previously played with ex-Fairport Sandy Denny, to whom Lucas was married, in the short-lived Fotheringay. Here they had effectively replaced Simon Nicol who had quit Fairport to join another ex-member Ashley Hutchings in The Albion Band, thus leaving the band with no original members until he rejoined in 1976.
