The mummers' play was resurrected in the summer of'75, when Steeleye performed it on one of six half-hour BBC TV Specials. For these shows the band gave special concerts at some of Britain's most famous or beautiful stately homes. like Warwick Castle, Thoresby Hall and the New Inn, Gloucester and on each they performed the equivalent of an album's worth of material. The six programmes remain the best visual record of Steeleye Span.

"The six programmes remain the best visual record of Steeleye Span." And as far as I know they are unavailable anywhere! Thanks very much for this post - at least now there is an audio record. :-)

Downright excellent music form the Steeleye. i saw them play at The Lido, Douglas, Isle of Man a year or two after these sessions. among my 10 best remembered concerts of all time - a young maddy dancing with her dress whirling round. thanks for the upload and please give us their concert from the nettlebed folk club, oxfordshire 25.07.2006.
cheers and regards from oslo, norway
