Live at Last (Steeleye Span album). Live at Last is a live album by the British folk rock band Steeleye Span. It is the first live album the band issued, after eight years of performing and releasing 10 studio albums. It was originally intended to be a farewell album. This then is our eleventh and final album. Steeleye Span amicably disbanded five days after making this recording for reasons that are irrelevant here.

Wintersmith is the twenty-second studio album by British folk rock band Steeleye Span. It was released in October 2013. It features the line-up of Maddy Prior, Peter Knight, Rick Kemp, Julian Littman, Pete Zorn and Liam Genockey. Guest musicians are Terry Pratchett (voice), Kathryn Tickell (Northumbrian pipes), Bob Johnson (vocals), and John Spiers (melodeon).

Live at Last is a live album by the electric folk band Steeleye Span. It is one of only two albums the band issued on which John Kirkpatrick played (not counting a later live reunion album, The Journey), making it one of only two albums to employ an accordion as a primary instrument. The album is also notable because only two of the tracks ("Saucy Sailor/Black Freighter" and "False Knight on the Road") were songs that the band had recorded before, so that most of the material on the album is essentially new material. The band went on to release a second live version of "The Maid and the Palmer" on The Journey.

At the time of Live at Last's release, this was most noticeable in the studied avoidance of any of the band's so-called "greatest hits"; the general absence of the ear-bleeding amplification that was once its in-concert calling card was also disconcerting, and anybody drawn to Live at Last by memories of recent Steeleye shows was left sorely underwhelmed. Time has improved matters somewhat, as further convolutions in the Steeleye story reveal that the golden age of the mid-'70s was simply one facet of a far greater jewel

Live at Last is a live album by the British folk rock band Steeleye Span.

Recorded live at the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth, 7 March 1978. Engineered at the Maison Rouge Mobile Studio Mixed at Wessex Studios, London. The music in the middle of "False Knight on the Road" (before Maddy returns to sing the last part of the song) is a Morris tune called "Monk's March" that John Kirkpatrick, Martin Carthy and others recorded for the album John Kirkpatrick With Sue Harris, Martin Carthy, Martin Brinsford, Fi Fraser - Plain Capers - Morris Dance Tunes From The Cotswolds in 1976.
