Essential Steeleye Span Resources
The official site for Steeleye Span has up to date tour information, bios of the band and a brief narrative history.
Park Records, the record company who look after the band have up to date releases, a shop for CD's and merchandise and official Youtube videos.
Chris Kellet has relaunched his Archive pages which has many old articles/reviews painstakingly transcribed from the original cuttings . He also has written out the Tim Hart book 'The Complete Steeleye Span', Compiled by Tim Hart and written by Robin Denselow, from 1978 which is referenced on this site.
This is the definitive place for the full Steeleye Discography. It is a one stop shop. It also has further Links that are very good sources of Steeleye Info.

The sources used are many and varied - Principally old cuttings / magazine articles / posters / ticket stubs / flyers / programmes / T-Shirts etc etc. I also used some archive type websites (Like the BBC Genome project which lists Radio Times entries and various Newspaper archive sites) .
