"Renbourn's last solo album for the next six years overlaps with his Pentangle work, featuring Terry Cox playing hand drums and glockenspiel, with future John Renbourn band member Tony Roberts and violinist Dave Swarbrick. The repertory consists of medieval and early classical pieces, interspersed with the expected folk material keyboard works from the Fitzwilliam virginal book (transcribed for guitar) stand alongside traditional tunes such as "Scarborough Fair," which turns up as part of an 11-minute track that also incorporates "My Johnny Was a Shoemaker," with Swarbrick at the top of his form on violin. The album is entirely instrumental, but as with other Renbourn releases, one hardly misses the vocals." - AMG.

The LP plays/sounds Mint.
Fantastic, natural sound. Instruments are highly detailed and surrounded by 'air' and presence. The soundstage is 3-dimensional and each instrument occupies it's own unique space. The instruments sound like they are in the room with you. A very impressive recording.
Surface noise consists of 3 'ticks' on Side 1 and some random, low-level 'ticks' on Side 2.
Each record is washed on a VPI cleaning machine using a proprietary 3-5 agent process which is determined by the needs of the individual record. Each record is then listened to 100% to insure that the posted description is exactly what you can expect to get.
