The LP gatefold cover is unusual, so 70s medieval. Most memorable tracks are Rosebud in June, King Henry, and Gaudete. The music is English folk songs recreated with modern flair. Songs are fairly straightforward - but lovely. Pryor's voice is very well suited to the music. I recommend this album. I grew up listening to this and still have it. I recall this being my favorite of the 4-5 Steeleye Span records my parents had.
