I own every recording Renbourn has ever produced with his name on the main by-line, and he's never put out an unsatisfactory work. Even then, this is one of his best from his earlier years. It's an all solo-instrumental set with no vocals (though another truly exceptional guitarist, John James, sits in on several tracks as well), featuring both originally composed material and adapted works by O'Carolan and others. I like this particular album by Renbourn because his treatment of the material does not fall victim to his one occasional weakness as a guitarist: a tendency toward repetition. If you listened much to NPR's program "All Things Considered" in the 1970s and 1980s you will recognize one of the cuts from this album, which was used for many years as a filler sequence on that program.
