"All Around My Hat" is a 1975 album by
Steeleye Span, their eighth and most commercially successful, reaching number 7 on the UK charts, and staying on the charts for 6 months. It briefly made the band a household name in England.
The song "Dance With Me" is a version of a Scandinavian ballad
Herr Olof och Älvorna.
The album cover and back was designed by John 'Connor, a friend of Hart's, using an anamorphic projection that distorted the facial features of the band members but which looks correct when viewed from the side through special pinholes in the lyric sheet.
