Anglo-American ears might not credit it, but Steeleye Span was at least as popular in Australia as they were elsewhere around the world, and tours of that continent during the 1970s and 1980s always brought out some of their best ever live performances. Certainly, compared to the lackluster "official" live album that the band recorded in the U.K., the tapes culled for Gone to Australia: On Tour 1975-1984, largely drawn from FM radio broadcasts (but also absorbing the nine-track Australian On Tour live promo LP), recapture a power and effervescence that most people thought had been lost forever.
