Sleeve Notes

The video Time features the much loved line-up of Maddy Prior, Bob Johnson, Peter Knight, Liam Genockey and Tim Harries, as well as original vocalist Gay Woods (ex-Auto De Fe) who returns to the fold for a magical set that combines Steeleye’s harmonic attack with their customary eye for a vivid song, including tales of Pagan goddesses and misunderstood witches - You Will Burn - mythological legends, noble folklore and the under-age pregnancy song, Underneath Her Apron.

Steeleye are an enduring legend now, boasting Prior and Woods incomparable vocal leadership, Johnson’s guitar virtuosity and Knight’s accomplished fiddle playing. Given that these are exciting times for folk music as a vibrant force, Time is bound to excite interest and delight long time followers and new fans alike. The video includes interviews with each member of the band talking about the making of the album and the story behind the song.
