Steeleye Span Versus The Time Warp

Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express, 10 March 1973

SOUND TECHNIQUES studios in Chelsea is not exactly the most luxurious of settings for musical activity. Boards, speakers and tape reels are scattered fairly haphazardly around a room which is furnished with a threadbare carpet, peeling walls and uncomplimentary graffiti about Dave Mattacks. Artists have to make their own coffee into the bargain. However, the sound's great – and that's why Steeleye Span have made all their albums there and were, at that point, engaged in mixing the new one. The beat goes on.
