Below The Salt is a music studio album recording by STEELEYE SPAN (Prog Related/Progressive Rock) released in 1972 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. This is the great Steeleye Span's fourth studio album and in addition to furthering their lovely communion of traditional British folk and blustery hard blues, it was the first release without founder/bassist Ashley Hutchings. Filling the gap left by he and Martin Carthy was the bass of Rick Kemp and guitar of Bob Johnson.

Below the Salt is the fourth studio album by Steeleye Span and their first after they joined the Chrysalis label. The album takes medieval influence and combines it with the band's British folk rock style. The lineup on the album includes Bob Johnson and Rick Kemp making their debuts in the band. By this point, Ashley Hutchings had left the band, leaving Tim Hart and Maddy Prior as the only remaining founding members.

With this album, Steeleye Span came to the fore of the British folk/rock movement and made serious headway with American listeners. Though it begins with the precious yet jaunty "Spotted Cow" followed by the forlorn "Rosebud In June" and then some snappy jigs, the songs become progressively complex thereafter. I bought this album back in 1976, after hearing several Steeleye Span songs on the local folk/rock radio station. I doubt if they were the first band to set medieval songs to modern tunes, but they're certainly one of the best. Innovative, fresh fun songs that'll have you humming them for hours afterward.

Prior's voice was never better than on this album, and while Carthy's backing vocals are missed, the group's singing is still up to a very high standard, with "Rosebud in June" perhaps the best a cappella number in their repertory and "Royal Forester" their most charmingly lusty performance. John Barleycorn" - which every Traffic fan should hear - is in a class by itself, and the dazzling "Gaudete" actually made the British charts and got Steeleye Span onto Top of the Pops.
