"John Renbourn's first two albums came out in late 1965 or 1966 on the famous guitarists' label Transatlantic Records. Shortly thereafter he and Bert Jansch would form Pentangle; this twofer reminds us of his blues and folk roots and the kind of material he was playing in the clubs at the time as a highly successful solo act. The fare consists mainly of solo instrumentals, but he sings on quite a few and is accompanied on some by an additional singer or instrumentalist. For those who might be wondering, even at this early date there is plenty of virtuosity evident--though to my mind the effect is just a bit too raw: I personally like his subsequent material better. Still, this is it: the first recordings by one of the major acoustic guitar talents of the last two generations."

"I first heard John Renbourn via a friend who was to become my guitar teacher. At the time I was 16, Bob Dylan etc., was all the rage and the 60's were swinging. I had just discovered sex but was so wrapped up in guitar playing that I divided my time between the two activities!! Renbourn made the most amazing sounds I had ever heard a guitar produce and it wasn't until February of 2002 that I actually got to see the man in concert at the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge. I have loved his music for over 35 years and would recommend that every affectionado of the guitar make at least one pilgrimage to his altar. You won't be disappointed."
