Title: Ten Man Mop or Mr Reservoir Butler Rides Again

Digitally remastered edition. Ten Man Mop or Mr. Reservoir Butler Rides Again is the third album by Steeleye Span, recorded in 1971. Of all their albums, it is the most acoustic and it also has considerable Irish influence. Ten Man Mop opens with possibly the most beautifully sung number of their entire history, "Gower Wassail," which also makes a very strong case for the use of electric guitars in a traditional folk setting. "Paddy Clancy's Jig/Four Nights Drunk" was the group's first great electric adaptation of traditional dance. Highlighted by Maddy Prior's haunting performance on "When I Was on Horseback" the delightful "Marrowbones," the riveting "Stewball," and the rousing reels "Dowd's Favorite," "£10 Float," and "The Morning Dew." This was the last album to feature founding member Ashley Hutchings, and with this releaase we have Ashley helping out with liner notes.
