• A folk rock institution for the last five decades, Steeleye Span’s lengthy and illustrious history is studded with significant achievements, hit records, industry awards and sell-out gigs.

• Nevertheless, it’s generally acknowledged by critics and fans alike that, in artistic terms, their most enduring legacy lies with the triptych of early 1970s albums that they recorded prior to founder member and folk rock legend Ashley Hutchings opting to leave the band that he’d quit Fairport Convention to painstakingly put together.

• Charting the early development of one of British folk rock’s most important and iconic acts, All Things Are Quite Silent brings together those three classic albums and adds several additional studio recordings from the same timeframe, including three versions of the group’s witty a cappella revamp of rock’n’roll classic ‘Rave On’.

• All three albums are presented in miniature facsimile sleeves, while the set is housed in a clamshell box that contains a 32-page booklet featuring rare photos, interview quotes and a lengthy essay on Steeleye’s early days.
