    Pete and Bob’s side-project, that as a side-effect broke up the ‘golden age’ lineup.. As Maddy puts it. Our desire for variety, though Lord knows we'd had plenty, spurred a dispute that ended with Bob and Pete leaving the band to work in a project dear to their hearts.. See notes on Storm Form Ten for more details.. This album is also notable for the stunning cover by Jimmy Cauty.

    Consisting of nine songs, plus nine brief segments of narration (taken directly from Dunsany's text), The King of Elfland's Daughter relates what happens when the men of Erl, bored with their mundane lives, go to their lord and request to be ruled, in future, by a "magic lord"/5(22).

    Dass Pete Knight und Bob Johnson hervorragende Musiker sind, weiß man schon seit ihrer Zeit bei Steeleye Span. Hinzu kommt aber noch ihr Mut, sich an diese "Rock-Oper" zu wagen, was zumindest Ende der 70er Jahre ein Wagnis einerseits und eine Herausforderng anderersreits war. Ich habe mir die damalige LP sofort auf Vinyl gekauft und war Reviews: 4.

This Alveric succeeds in doing, much to the dismay of Lirazel’s father, who does not want to see her made mortal. And so he sends a troll with a rune to fetch her back. Too much magic. We dare not go a.

    Bob Johnson and Pete Knight (both at the time, fresh out of Steeleye Span), have recruited a talented cast of singers here, including Mary Hopkin (who sings the part of Lirazel), Alexis Korner (who provides the voice of the Troll), P P Arnold (as the Witch) and, presiding over the whole album as both narrator and King of Elfland, the great /5(24).
