Astonishing guitar work
G. McCoy | Kansas City, MO | 01/18/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"On this session, Renbourn proves again that he is one of the undisputed masters of the guitar. The tracks are generally minor-key medieval/renaissance-era mood-pieces adapted for solo guitar, and as such they work beautifully. This is a perfect winter/early morning/rainy day album, and I believe it's a masterpiece both for the amazing playing and the unique, marvelous compositions. A couple of the tracks also include fife and drums, and do so to good effect. This is my favorite Renbourn recording. If you're a fan of his, of great steel-string guitar work, or of interesting early music, don't miss this one."
Renbourn at his finest!

"With a wholesome rich sound that transcends from piece to piece, its one of John's finest albums. The masterful blend of sound John achieves makes the musical mind ponder at his abilities. Each track leaves you anticipating the next, much like John's older LPs such as Sir John Alot. 5 Stars does this an injustice. The opening piece, New Nothyng is one of my all time Renbourn favorites. A build up from "Lady Nothynge's Toy Puffe," this piece expounds on the original with 2 guitar pieces together. Absolutely beautiful!"
One of Renbourn's best

"A gorgeous, transendant acoustic guitar album that easily lives up to the high standards of such '70s classics as "The Black Balloon". Highly recommended."
