Steeleye Span A Wooing Wend

Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express, 21 April 1973

BACKSTAGE at Bristol, and everything is panic and turmoil. Steeleye Span's support act hasn't arrived half-an-hour before show-time. Jo Lustig, Steeleye manager, is standing with his face to the wall, alternately mentally rehearsing a half-hour set of Jewish jokes and badgering Peter Knight and Bob Johnson to do an impromptu opening spot.
