REELIN’ IN THE YEARS – Classic Album

roguesPARCEL OF ROGUES – Steeleye Span

Parcel of Rogues released in 1973 is the 5th album by British folk rock band Steeleye Span. It was their most successful album thus far, breaking into the Top 30 in the UK.

The album grew out of a theatrical project the band undertook, a version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Kidnapped“. The book and play were set against the backdrop of the Scottish Jacobite movement, and in the course of developing the play, the band came across a considerable amount of 18th century Scottish poetry that they mined for the album.

The title of the album derives from a line in the song “Rogues in a Nation” which is a poem by Robert Burns.  “Alison Gross” and “One Misty Moisty Morning” are probably the best known tracks on the album.

The use of drums, driven in part by Rick Kemp’s background in rock is a feature of the album. The drums took the band further in the direction of rock, as demonstrated by “The Wee Wee Man” and “Cam Ye O’er Frae France.” After the album was released, the band undertook a US tour, opening for Jethro Tull.

In 1974 Ian Anderson produced their next album “Now We Are Six”. “Parcel Of Rogues” is a stand out album of folk rock from Steeleye Span.
