5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid mid-80s album reissued 26 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Of all John Renbourn's many records, this is probably the most technically skillful, while the melodic aspect steps a bit into the background. But that's fine, because it only shows the wide variety of his talent. Being recorded in the mid-nineties, there is also a tendency for it to be cleaner sounding than his previous production - we have stepped into the era of guitar tuners and digital recording techniques. The widespread interest in New Age music at that time can also be felt, but none of it to an extend where the artist is in any way compromising himself, and in other ways he is even improving, i.e. taking more time to express the immense beauty always incorporated in his compositions. All in all, an excellent release, good sound, nice insert etc. A few friends augment the arrangements here and there, but only to a limited extent - this is very much a solo record. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars another intricate weave 31 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
ah.. John Renbourn.. I just bought this having just about everything else the man has ever done.. John of course being one of the two guitarists in Pentangle my all time favourite folk fusion band, in my opinion the most polished and admirable of all such bands, is matched only by my admiration for his long lifetime playing partner the unmistakeable Bert Jansch.

I doted on Pentangle music throughout university and since and studiously learned or attempted to learn to play everything Jansch and Renbourn did. Whilst emotionally I have always been way more in tune with Jansch ( whose voice is similar to my own ) as the wayward woeful farmer's boy who can transform into 'the very deevil himself' in folk lore tunes of grave melancholy and threat, I could and have just about mastered the basics of Jansch's uniquely interesting achordal guitar style and delivery but Renbourn.. always the more 'calculating' of the two for me... I can't begin to touch his expertise..

Renbourn is one of those super precise faux-classical influenced guitarists like Isaac Guillory, Adrian Legg, who invent their own amalgam styles; who can seemingly play so fast and so precisely you wonder how they do it just like others in the more classical vein. John is an unashamed medieavalist and it's in these guitar-only instrumental albums like this one you sit back astonished and wish you could surgically graft on an extra set of fingers and speed your brain up to pay the stuff he puts out. Executed with the usual dazzling intricacy and precision, this is another collection of early music influenced tracks which leaves you thinking how far you have to go trying to learn to play guitar while juggling all the boring work routines of modern bill-dependent life...

This 1986 album is another landmark in the career of the exceptional John Renbourn. At times it almost seems like a career retrospective, mixing elements of folk (especially celtic rythms) with eastern influences, jazzy flourishes, early baroque stylings and the odd bluesy break.. It's a perfect synthesis of all his previous influences into one beautiful whole that shows that he has progressed as an artist, learnt new things, but never at the expense of the old things which he has never forgotten or stopped using in his work.

It's a sublime album of instrumentals, with Renbourn's guitar the real star of the show. His playing is amazing. It's a thing of beauty, 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finger picking good 10 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
John Renbourne has been a great exponent of the art of finger style guitar for around a half centruy now, mixing folk, blues and jazz with early music and this album is no disappointment: a real pleasure for listening and a great companion for relaxation.
