Steeleye Span - 1971 - Please to See the King

Steeleye Span are a British folk-rock band, formed in 1969 and remaining active today. Along with Fairport Convention  they are amongst the best known acts of the British folk revival, and were among the most commercially successful, thanks to their hit singles "Gaudete" and "All Around My Hat". They had 3 top 40 albums. They achieved a certified "gold" record with sales of "All Around My Hat". The name Steeleye Span comes from a character in the traditional song Horkstow Grange (which they did not actually record until they released an album by that name in 1998). Please To See The King is the second album by Steeleye Span, released in 1971. The title of the album is derived from the "Cutty Wren" ceremony. A winter wren in a cage is paraded as if it were a king. This rite was carried out on December 26, Saint Stephen's Day, and is connected to early Christmas celebrations. All songs appearing on the album are traditional. Musically, this was their most electric, dense recording, with loud guitars and strong looping bass lines and no drums. Melody Maker made this their folk album of the year.
