Sails Of Silver is a music studio album recording by STEELEYE SPAN (Prog Related/Progressive Rock) released in 1980 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Although "Sails of silver" was performed by the line up which recorded some of the band's most admired albums, the approach to recording was radically different to what fans were used to. Noted producer Gus Dudgeon was brought in to make the album more commercially appealing, but it is the presence for the first time of a number of songs written by band members which sets the album apart from what had gone before.
The first of Steeleye Span's many comebacks, Sails of Silver restores the classic lineup from their mid-'70s pinnacle. After not appearing on Storm Force 10 and Live at Last, guitarist Bob Johnson and t Peter Knight unseat their onetime replacements, Martin Carthy and John Kirkpatrick. The result is a surprisingly well-crafted yet largely overlooked album. At the urging of producer Gus Dudgeon, Steeleye Span wrote all of the songs on this album, the first release that didn't include several if not solely traditional numbers. After a decade of reconstructing English and Irish folk songs, something must have taken hold of this band; several selections - including "Sails of Silver," "Barnet Fair," "Let Her Go Down," and "Longbone" - definitely possess a traditional feel, both in melody and lyric.
Sails of Silver is an album by British folk rock band Steeleye Span. The album was produced two years after the band's ostensible break-up. At the request of Chrysalis Records Peter Knight and Bob Johnson both returned, replacing their own replacements Martin Carthy and John Kirkpatrick, who departed after the release of Live at Last.
