AllMusic Review by

1973's Time Span is a repackaging of the two LPs Almanack and Individually & Collectively. Focusing on the group's first three records, as well as the early recordings of Tim Hart and Maddy Prior, the collection is at its best in this combined form as it's a more thorough representation of the group's earliest and most influential work. The inclusion of the much sought-after rarity "General Taylor" helps to elevate Time Span above similar compilations. Cambra released a version of the same record in 1984 called Steeleye Span that featured all of the tracks in a different sequence.
