The Song and the Story fanzine gives detailed background information to some of Steeleye's traditional songs. For example "Cam Ye O'er Frae France" The first couple of lines read:- "A song from around 1715 at the time of the Jacobite rebellion in support of James Francis Edward Stuart, son of the exiled James II. Jacob is the Latin form of James." It goes on to explain what "Geordie Whelps" and Kittle Housie" mean. There are 15 songs mentioned in the book.
