Tonight's the Night...Live is the second live album by British folk rock band Steeleye Span.
During the 1980s, Steeleye released only three albums. By 1991, the band was revitalized through the arrival of bassist Tim Harries and drummer Liam Genockey. Harries was younger than the other band members, and new blood returned the band to full-time activity. Steeleye found a fresh perspective on old material, as is evident on Tonight's the Night...Live, which balances the band's rock and folk roots.
The album includes new arrangements of several songs from earlier albums, some of them different from the earlier versions: "Cam Ye O'er Frae France" from Parcel of Rogues, "All Around My Hat" from All Around My Hat, "Fighting for Strangers" from Rocket Cottage, "White Man" from Back in Line, and "Padstow" from Tempted and Tried. "The Weaver and the Factory Maid" is effective. With a thrumming bass line, clicking percussion and repetitive violin and guitar lines, the song conveys the sense of a factory full of power looms.
The other half of the album is new pieces. The most experimental is "Tam Lin", Fairport Convention's signature tune.
