Sleeve lists names of Tim Hart and Maddy Prior on the back, but not the other members of Steeleye Span. As this release comes with no extra information whatsoever (that is: no inserts, no lyrics, no photos, nothing!) it may be safely assumed this record was a bootleg of early Steeleye Span (and Hart/Prior) works. Maddy Prior is quoted in the liner notes of the CD reissue of Folk Songs of Old England Vol. 1 that “Tony Pike [the producer of the two Folk Songs LPs] died...and the albums passed through the hands of several shortlived companies...” Boulevard Records seems to have been one of those companies intent on cashing in on the success of Steeleye Span in the mid-70s and the confusion over the future of Steeleye Span when they parted ways in 1978. In fact, the only other piece of information possibly worth researching is the label Shannon Records (based in London) of which Boulevard was a subsidiary.
