The photos of Steeleye Span on stage at the Caird Hall were taken by my brother on 28th October 1972.
The band was probably the most commercial of the folk-rock acts that were on the go at that time.
The line-up did chop & change around this period so the only definite on the blurry images is vocalist, Maddy Prior, although that's probably Peter Knight (wearing the hat) on fiddle. I wouldn't want to commit myself on the other members on view.
The support act on the night was another folk-rock band, The Amazing Blondel. Don't know much about them, but a wee bit of trivia I have is that Eurythmic, Dave Stewart, used to be roadie with The Amazing Blondel as well as occasional guitarist!
