Steeleye Span: First Steps (Talking Elephant TECD036)

First Steps
Steeleye Span

Talking Elephant TECD036 (CD, UK, November 2001)
Talking Elephant TECD036 (CD, UK, reissue January 2008)

One more for the heap of budget compilations with tracks from the first three Steeleye Span LPs and from Tim Hart & Maddy Prior LPs. But it has a nice cover picture.
