Park recently uploaded 2 more unseen videos from the1995 reunion concert 'The Journey'- 'Prince Charlie Stuart' and Cold Haily Windy Night'. (both Steeleye Mk II line up - the only time they ever all played together since 1971)
In Summer 2019 when Steeleye toured Holland they introduced a new version/re working of 'The Blacksmith' which stayed in the set for the Autumn UK tour. Here a decent recording was uploaded in Holland.
I have uploaded a new copy of the 1971 Aisndale Beach (Southport) performance which is the full set and in much better quality than previously available on Youtube.

A live DVD/CD 4 disk set celebrating the 50th Anniversary. DVD's recorded at Epsom in April 2019 and Buxton in October 2018. The CD's are from the 2019 concert. Also included is an 11 minute documentary about the history of the band involving interviews of current/ex band members plus managers/engineers etc. Notable for featuring a first public appearance of Bob Johnson since 2001.
Recorded for a Radio Broadcast (not sure if it was ever broadcast ) and now available as a Live CD. Released by Angel Air Records in September 2019. An exciting release because apart from Live at Last, no other official live recordings of this line up exists. It means a chance to hear the line up's rousing versions of 'Cam Ye O'er Frae France', The Boar's Head and set closer 'Seventeen Come Sunday', as well as live versions of Awake Awake and Galtee Farmer.
Not an official authorised Steeleye book, although it does feature new interviews with some of the band members. It mainly pulls together much of what is already known from all the various interviews/press cuttings etc that have been written over the years. But it is well written and knits all those interviews/articles into a comprehensive history of the band. It is also unique is that it covers the Steeleye story into the 21st Century which the other books have not tended to do so.
