Steeleye Span: A Stack of Steeleye Span (>Emporio EMPRCD 668)

A Stack of Steeleye Span
Their Finest Folk Recordings 1970-1971
Steeleye Span

Emporio EMPRCD/MC 668 (CD / Cass., UK, September 1996)

The first issue of this CD was subtitled “Their Finest Folk Recordings 1973 - 1975” and the CD inlet shows a drawing of Steeleye Span Mk 4 (i.e. including drummer Nigel Pegrum) but the tracks are taken from the first three albums of Steeleye Span Mk 1 and 2, i.e. 1970/71. I have been told that this typo has been corrected in later releases.
