5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great albums from early Steeleye, 22 Feb 2013

This review is from: Ten Man Mop (Audio CD)
It's easy to forget just how influential Steeleye Span have been on the whole folk scene - both in the UK and further afield.
The pop years, when Mike Batt produced hit albums and hit singles, have tended to obscure (and for some people, ruin) their reputation.
But those early albums - Hark! The Village Wait, Please To See The King and this one, Ten Man Mop, form a solid template for the songs - and styles - that many, many others would follow in the years to come. Everyone from Kate Rusby to Bellowhead owe much of their repertoire and opportunities to these albums.
Great performances, of their time and yet also transcending their times. If you've even a hint of an urge to hear echoes of the weird old Britain / Ireland - track down these records. They're all wonderful.
