Tonight's the Night, Live! Review

by Bruce Eder

Steeleye Span's live album, Tonight's the Night, Live!, recorded on their 1991 tour, is a surprisingly fulfilling work, covering new territory ("Ca the Ewes") and songs familiar from other hands ("Tam Lin," long a Fairport Convention standard), as well as a rousing version of "All Around My Hat" that is superior to the studio original. It's well-made, though it would've been nice to have included a list of the dates from which the performance derived.
