This is a live recording of most of a benefit concert for the
War Child Charity, which helps children living in war zones. It took place on September 2nd, 1995 at The Forum, London. and was organized by Dave Hill, a long-standing Steeleye Span fan. He managed to convince nearly everybody of the Steeleye Span members from the first 25 five years of their history to play at this concert.
