When two such experienced and masterful men team up, everybody should pay attention, and this cd rewards that attention to a large extent. It is not presenting anything new or daring, but it does evoke the concert experience that make all concerts of our rock & folk heroes great.
Williamson dominates the stage, and Renbourn seems quite content with that. Give the man a guitar and he produces the finest guitar work you could wish for. His singing will not stir any audience, but we knew that, didn't we ?
Obviously, the central piece is "Finn & the old man's house" in which Williamson shows what a good storyteller can do to amuse and to instruct his audience.
In all, this is a satisfying piece of work with some outstanding performances - but it lacks the orginality, spirit and freshness to be called great. For fans only.
