The most enduring British folk-rock band, Steeleye Span recorded 10 albums for the Chrysalis label, the first five included on the other EMI 3-CD box set. This welcomed second volume includes the next five albums recorded by the band for EMI Records: "Rocket Cottage" (1976), "Storm Force Ten" (1977), "Live at Last" (1978), "Sails of Silver" (1980) and "Tempted and Tried" (1989).

After a huge success with the album and the single "All Around My Hat" in 1975, Mike Batt was invited to produce the next album and the result was another cracker: "Rocket Cottage" is a wonderful album, full of energy and good songs, although it was not fully appreciated at the time of its release. The upbeat "London" (penned by Rick Kemp), the stunning "Sir James the Rose" and the instrumental "Sligo Maid" are the highlights, but all the songs are delightful.

In 1977 the line-up changed, with the departure of Peter Knight (fiddle) and Bob Johnson (guitar) to work on another project: "The King of Elfland's Daughter". They were replaced by Martin Carthy (guitar and vocals) and John Kirkpatrick (accordion), and the band was completed with Maddy Prior (vocals), Tim Hart (guitar and vocals), Rick Kemp (bass) and Nigel Pegrum (drums and flute). This incarnation recorded the next two albums, "Storm Force Ten" and the live album (more acoustic than the usual electrified rock sound, a very different texture).

In 1980 Peter Knight and Bob Johnson returned to the band, to replace Martin Carthy and John Kirkpatrick. The two eighties' albums included here are very interesting and varied. The first one was produced by Gus Dudgeon and consists of mainly original songs. The album was underrated at the time of its release, but in retrospect I think it's quite good.

I've been on a mission to collect all of the early and middle work of this band, one of the finest of the British folk-rock revival era. This three-disc set complements two other sets, "Lark in the Morning" and "A Parcel of Steeleye Span", which include all of their first eight albums. This collection is comprised of albums nine through twelve plus their fourteenth. During this period there were several personnel changes and at least two breakups. One thing that remained constant, though, was Maddy Prior's distinctive voice. Although as a whole these five albums are not as consistently brilliant as their earlier work, there is still plenty of first-rate music to satisfy this fan.

"Rocket Cottage" (1976, ***1/2) is a bit over-produced and uneven, but earns an extra half a star for including two of their best songs ever, "London" and the relatively experimental "Fighting for Strangers". Also worthwhile are the brief but excellent a capella "The Bosnian Hornpipes" and the rousing "Sir James the Rose". Closing the album is the demo-like "The Drunkard", which is prefaced by some silly studio hijinks and rather sloppy version of "Camptown Races". The song itself, once it gets under way, is quite fine.

"Storm Force Ten" (1977, ****) is a significant departure musically and personnel-wise: gone are fiddler Peter Knight and guitarist/vocalist Robert Johnson; in their place are folk stalwarts Martin Carthy and accordionist John Kirkpatrick. This gives the album a decidedly folkier flavor than the last few albums, and Kirkpatrick's squeeze box is so virtuosic that we almost don't miss Knight's fiddle. Highlights: "Sweep, Chimney Sweep" (another a capella tour de force), "The Victory", and "The Black Freighter" (a.k.a. "Pirate Jenny") from Kurt Weill's "Threepenny Opera".

Steeleye Span, along with Fairport Convention, were the twin pillars of the British folk-rock scene. And like Fairport, Steeleye Span underwent frequent personnel changes. In fact, the only constant on these five albums from 1976 to 1989 are vocalist Maddy Prior and drummer Nigel Pegrum.

While all five of these albums have their moments, 1976's ROCKET COTTAGE is the one must-own album. The vocal harmonies on "London" are breathtaking. The brief acapella "The Bosnian Hornpipes" is a pure delight. And "Sir James the Rose" is perhaps one of their best songs ever.

With 1977's STORM FORCE TEN (the band's tenth album), Martin Carthy was back in the band. Also on board was accordionist John Kirkpatrick (who had worked extensively with Richard Thompson). The a capella piece "Sweep, Chimney Sweep" is amazing. "The Victory" is an engaging anthem that makes you forget that the song goes on for more than eight minutes. Carthy's acoustic guitar work on "Some Rival" is understated yet compelling.

As one of this sets bonus tracks, Their 1977 Christmas single "The Boar's Head Carol" is included. The other bonus track is their 1978 single "Rag Doll," a cover of the Four Seasons' hit.

The same lineup that produced STORM FORCE TEN was still intact for the band's first live album, 1978's LIVE AT LAST. It's a nice souvenir of what the band was like live. I especially like the energy in "Hunting the Wren."

By the end of 1978, founding member Tim Hart announced this would be their last album. However, in 1980 Prior and Hart (along with the rhythm section of Rick Kemp and Nigel Pegrum) reunite with Bob Johnson (guitar) and Peter Knight (keyboards, violin) and Carthy and Kirkpatrick are out. They release SAILS OF SILVER.
