5.0 out of 5 stars Mostly Acoustic, Always Exceptional November 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Martin Simpson is a rare jewel, one of the greatest living British folk guitarist, prolific and creative, and yet for the most part working under the radar. This instrumental recording from almost 20 years ago is timeless with its traditional tunes (his then wife Jessica's two originals are traditional sounding), tastefully overdubbed with his owned stringed wizardry, and backed with Violectra, cello, electric bass and shruti box (a small bellowed musical box similar to a harmonium) accompaniment. It reminds me a lot of his 1997 instrumental release Cool & Unusual, but is even more low key with tasteful, mellow, understated, sparse yet intricate acoustic compositions.

As usual he includes detailed liner notes, and the added treat of tablature music for 7 songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars When I was Horseback March 21, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Excellent music,what I call soft, well played and is perfect music for my kind of workplace where I write and read it is enjoyable, but not distracting. He is an artist of rare talent.
