2164 Maddy Prior - Mother and Child
From: Woman In The Wings; Year:1978; Genre: Progressive Rock/Folk Rock

This is yet another great track that I believed I had already picked. This is a rather pretty and emotional piece that really showcases the beautiful voice of Maddy Prior. The first time I had ever heard it was from a recording that featured only Rick Kemp's bass and her singing. It was early on in hearing music from or associated with Steeleye Span; to say the least it got my attention.

Hear an excellent live performance featuring Rick Kemp on YouTube.

My song pick a year ago today: Ludwig Van Beethoven - Op.13 - Piano Sonata No.8 "Pathétique"

My song pick two years ago today: Chet Atkins - Tears

My song pick three years ago today: Fleetwood Mac - Tusk

My song pick four years ago today: Fairport Convention - Tam Lin
