A Modern Song That Resounds Through The Ages With Hard Times Of Old England By Steeleye Span And Francis Rossi
Featuring Francis Rossi
Hard Times Of Old England
The 70s were a brilliant decade for new music with rock n roll and folk music taking the lead against the steady flow of disco and dance. An alternative sound is often what defines the period for many of us and two giants of the day are still captivating the imagination and the interest of fans with their skills. Status Quo’s Francis Rossi has teamed up with the folk superstar band Steeleye Span to rework Hard Times Of Old England. When the boomers get busy, they always do the best possible job and here we have a shining example of what the elder generation of creatives can do. An exceptional career behind both parties, it’s good to know they’re thinking about how it is for most of us. Record profits against recording prophets, let’s take a trip back in time.
The song bursts into the stereo with a full harmony chorus that sets the key and tone. A sudden blues rock melody from Francis Rossi enters on a synonymous sound we can feel straight away. The rest of the band join in with their traditional sounds that build on the warmly distorted guitar. The quick-moving and tuneful song whips around the streets like a spring breeze, carrying aromatic pollens and whispers of good cheer. A flurry of notes culminates in the progressive and uplifting remedy to struggle and strife. Keeping the spirits up while acknowledging the battle is what folk and the blues both do best.
