Thomas the Rhymer or True Thomas is a ballad about the medieval prophet Thomas of Ercildoune. He meets the Queen of Elfland who takes him away from earth for seven years, putting him through various rituals which no doubt instil his prophetic powers. Carl Loewe set this ballad to music as Tom der Reimer (op. 135a, ca. 1860). Steeleye Span released their recording of Thomas the Rhymer in 1974 in two different versions: a short one (. 4) with just five verses as a single with the B-Side The Mooncoin Jig and a long version (. 4) on the original Chrysalis UK release of their LP Now We Are Six. However, most reissues of this record contain the shorter single version of Thomas the Rhymer with the exception of the BGO CD reissue.
