Parcel of Rogues is an album by British folk rock band Steeleye Span. It was their most successful album thus far, breaking into the Top 30. The album grew out of a theatrical project the band undertook, a version of Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped, staged in Edinburgh. The book and play were set against the backdrop of the Scottish Jacobite movement, and in the course of developing the play, the band came across a considerable amount of 18th-century Scottish poetry that they mined for the album.

Parcel of Rogues is the group's first real rock album, featuring a sound clearly rooted in modern sensibilities, with the guitars turned up very loud for the first time

I have been listening to Steeleye Span since the mid-1970's, when they performed often in Seattle. This album is one of their two best, in my opinion; the other being Below the Salt. Having Scottish ancestors, I am particularly taken by the song "Parcel of Rogues", a dirge lamenting the loss of Scotland's national identity to become part of England.

Parcel of Rogues is the group's first real rock album, featuring a sound clearly rooted in modern sensibilities, with the guitars turned up very loud for the first time. The singing is still modeled on traditional patterns, and is quite beautiful (especially "One Misty Moisty Morning" and "Allison Gross"), but the resonances and undertones of electric guitars are everywhere - the result is a record that, in some ways, recalls Fairport Convention's Liege & Lief (the record that led indirectly to the spawning of Steeleye Span in the first

Steeleye Span-Parcel Of Rogues-Chrysalis 1046-WLP PROMO. Below the salt" contributes three fine songs, while the pair from "Parcel of rogues" are among the strongest on that album. With a running time of around 50 minutes, for a budget label release this offers excellent value. The fact that the tracks chosen are among the cream of the band's work made this a superb investment in its day.
