Before forming Steeleye Span, Tim Hart and Maddy Prior were a major attraction around the folk clubs of Britain. Although understandably a little thin on production values, this is a wonderful period piece which is every bit as enjoyable now as when it was first recorded back in the late sixties. Maddy's vocals are as glorious as ever; Tim's slightly nasal delivery is the only relatively weak point but he provides effective harmony and instrumental support. A very satisfying mix of humourous and more reflectve songs, this is an album of timeless quality which gives some interesting pointers to the direction Steeleye Span would soon be taking. Definitely worth adding to your collection.

I first became interested in British folk music in the early '80s, and a friend introduced me to a number of songs from this album. Ever since, the voices of Tim Hart and Maddy Prior have symbolized for me what's best about folk vocals.
The best-known track on this CD is probably "Fiddler's Green". I have since heard many other renditions of the song, but none has even come close to Hart and Prior for sheer beauty. Tim Hart's voice features most prominently in that song, and in general features more prominently on this CD than on Volume 1. Maddy Prior's voice is certainly indispensible here, but she plays more of a supporting role in most of the tracks.

Format: Audio CD
Tim Hart and Maddy Prior became founder members of Steeleye Span, one of Britain's leading folk-rock groups. Before that, they established their reputation playing the folk club circuit. During that time, they recorded two albums of traditional folk songs, of which this is the second. The music is suitably primitive with very little musical accompaniment, sometimes none at all. Maddy does most of the singing although Tim gets some solo vocals and there are also some duets. Tim's rustic voice will not appeal to everybody although I quite like it. Nevertheless, Maddy was then (and still is) a class act and the best tracks are those that feature Maddy.

Among my favorites here are Copshawholme fair, Horn of the hunter, Queen Eleanor's confession and Captain Wedderburn's courtship. You don't get songs like those anymore. One of Tim's solos (Paddy stole the rope) is an amusing song about two men and a rope.

If you are interested in traditional folk music performed in a style close to its origins centuries ago, this is as close as you are likely to find on CD.
