In 1966 two of England's best folk guitarists/singer-composers got together to collabrate on a joint project and the results were excellent. It led directly to the formation of the well-known folk group of the era, Pentangle. All of the tracks except two on this CD are short instrumentals; the longest is their version of the Charles Mingus jazz classic "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" at 3:54 (incidentally it is interesting to compare this version with Jeff Beck's). Most of the tracks were written by the pair, either jointly or singly and contain plenty of innovative melodies, themes, and guitar licks. The total running time is a meagre 26:33, but there is plenty of absorbing accoustic guitar music within it.

This album is so much part of me, I really am struggling to describe why you should own it. It's the truest, most pure & wonderful music you can find. The songs have a haunting, seductive quality - you really feel Bert & John are having the time of their lives, and in total control of where they're taking you.
Just try it, you'll be suprised. After the 5th listen you'll have it on top of your CD pile...

I bought the vinyl album - called "Stepping Stones" - when a 6th former without knowing anything about either Bert Jansch or John Renbourne but curious to see what they sounded like. I was aware that Jansch was a bit of a cult even then (no typo there, incidentally). And I was amazed: at it's simplicity - in its short, sharp songs - and it's complexity - in it's incredibly accomplished guitar playing. Jansch's playing simply defies description. He is truely unique. All tracks are superb but for me "The Time has Come" is the most shuddering. Although it isn't exactly PC as it seems to be about the singer saying goodbye to his lover because he is going on tour - the US perhaps? - and really wants to be unencumbered so he can enjoy the groupies without a conscience. That's my take on it, anyway! All good, clean fun.

Why does Amazon attribute this to Bert Jansch? If ever you were looking for an inspired collaboration of two equal partners, then surely this delivers the goods. More than forty years on and it still gives me shivers. I have several versions of 'Goodbye Pork Pie Hat' and this version stands with the best of them. 'Stepping Stones' continues to make me wince with delight, though I must have heard it a hundred times. And 'After the Dance' always leaves me wanting more. John Renbourn came up, less than two years later, with 'Sir John Alot Of Merrie Englandes Musyk Thyng And Ye Grene Knyghte', surely one of the most cringemaking titles ever contrived but also a seminal and utterly brilliant album which I still rank amongst my top ten of all time. Virtually simultaneously, the first of the Pentangle albums was released. Three gems.

Bought as a present for an individual who was looking for inspiration for learning guitar skills; they said "Left me wanting more".
