[Steeleye Span / Rick Kemp]

Sung by Rick Kemp and Maddy Prior on Steeleye Span’s CD They Called Her Babylon and their video The 35th Anniversary World Tour 2004. Rick Kemp commented in the CD sleeve notes:

A poetic view of the pre-Christian festival which became Halloween. This is my favourite time of the year, but I wonder if Pagans had the same rosy view of winter as me, without the benefit of supermarkets, and if the chestnut tree was introduced by then?
