2 bands with 2 very similar names.
Who do you like the most ?
For you, for who these are hard to tell apart, to make your choice,
there is a simple rhyme, to help you do so.

These bands are hard to tell apart,
But there's a rhyme to learn by heart,
Steeleye Span jazz rock do play,
While Steely Dan sing folk all day.

Simple. Big smile  
Shake & bake.

The wonderful Steeleye Span.
In your rhyme you have them reversed!

Maybe I'm dead wrong. I do like Steeleye Span myself as long as they stick to 70's folk don't try to rock. Maddy Prior's voice is Sandy Denny-level wonderful but after Below The Salt I don't enjoy their albums much. But I think most folk is best without electric guitars and rock drums

As Steeleye has been one of my favorite bands for decades, you can guess where my vote goes.

The Dan......but I am a fan of Steeleye also. I have most of their 70's lp's on original vinyl.

a hard neither for me.

but if I had to choose, I suppose SS
Dig me...But don't...Bury me
I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive

I voted both.   I love me some Dan but if you're in the mood for some kickin' old school Elf Rock, Steeleye is hard to beat.

Hi,

I don't think I have ever EVER met a single person that listened to a STEELEYE SPAN album on its own and in its entirety ... or ... can name the lead singer!

Oh well ... so much for progressive and experimental and doing something totally different and off the wall!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com

If you've never met anyone who's listened to an entire Steeleye Span song or can name Maddy Prior as their lead singer, you either need to get out more or find new musical friends.
