Amazon.co.uk

Reunited with former mainstay and folk-rock matriarch Maddy Prior MBE, Present finds the most familiar incarnation of the legendary Steeleye Span (Bob Johnson on guitar, Peter Knight on fiddle, Liam Genockey on drums, Rick Kemp on bass) rerecording many of their greatest songs as voted for by visitors to the band's record company Web site. The resulting renditions--although warm, spontaneous and thoroughly professional--can hardly hope to supersede the original versions (there is absolutely nothing wrong with the original versions) but the wistful and therefore more empathic "Hard Times of England" is a thoroughly exceptional piece of work, meriting a place on any future career retrospective. Other deviations from the script include a lovely, surreptitious hidden a cappella rendition of "Rosebud in June" and a jury's-out, funk-twang Gang-of-Four-gone-folk-style assault on "Blackleg Miner" in which the normally placatory Maddy Prior fulminates like a seething Socialist Worker activist. But that's always been the deceptive thing about Steeleye Span. Although they're not exactly Slipknot, search beyond the proper-jolly-we-are tea-room etiquette of "All Around My Hat" and other such joyfully folky odes to sheep, beer and blacksmiths and their songs are often frightfully bloodthirsty post-watershed dramas about wrathful members of the aristocracy, child-killing bogeymen lurking in the darkness on the edge of town ("Beware the moors" on "Long Lankin") and--why not indeed--syphilis. Take the excellent medieval psych-rock of "King Henry", for example. Why, the poor old chap has to save his own life by sacrificing his greyhounds and lying down to procreate with a hideous, horse-blood drinking, dentally-imperfect old ghoul. Not even Nick Cave at his nastiest could possibly conjure up such a vision of sanguinary malevolence. --Kevin Maidment
