    Drawn from their 20 years on the Park Records label, The Essential Steeleye Span: Catch Up looks back at the recent history of one of the most prolific bands of their age. From 1996’s Time up to their Wintersmith collaboration with the late Sir Terry Pratchett, the album features some of the most memorable moments in Steeleye’s long and distinguished career; whether it be from their string of acclaimed Park releases or a number of new recordings of their most famous songs. Including rare and unreleased material, this is the perfect release for those new to the group or returning fans – a snapshot of a band still at the peak of their creative powers.

    Somewhere Along The Road
    A beautiful, largely a capella arrangement highlights the emotional depth that has attracted so many artists over the years, each voice blending in perfect harmony to bring a choral feel reminiscent of the band's classic Christmas hit 'Gaudette'. Topped off by violinist Jesse May Smart's exquisite strings, it is a song both to delight long term fans of the band and one to appeal to all lovers of thoughtful, poignant songwriting. As Kemp himself says, "a song of the natural desire and search for sanctuary and a kindred spirit, 'Somewhere Along the Road' seems to reflect our human needs in these unsettled times more than ever".

    'Somewhere Along The Road' appears as a previously unreleased track on The Essential Steeleye Span - Catch Up, an album that gathers together the finest moments of the band's twenty year (and counting) relationship with Park Records. It features not only highlights of their original albums during this time but also a number of new versions of their most famous songs and is backed by an extensive UK tour. Show less
