A Great Collection ofpost-Pentangle ensemble works,
This review is from: John Barleycorn (Audio CD)
This CD is a selection from the two studio albums by the John Renbourn Group. After Pentangle disbanded, Renbourn relocated to the countryside and, with the help of a few friends (specially flutist and reedman Tony Roberts)he started to get back to music, and perhaps the environment, more than anything else, contributed to the material chose for these sessions. In retrospect, it's quite odd that such pastoral and delicate music comes from the early days of punk efervescence. Nevertheless, Renbourn delivers his usual finesse and great command of the instrument. Add Jacqui McShee's angelical voice, Tony Robert's vast array of wind instruments and the eccentric tabla percussion to the formula and you get a sublime, uplifting musical experience.
