When the network did not exist and at the time of purchase music, I often faced sealed LPs, without oportunity able to listen them. How to choose and buy without a mistake?
Well, in my case I always depended on my instincts. Sometimes a simple but attractive cover was the final choice (evidently based on artists I knew). An excellent example is this double LP of “The John Renbourn Group”, knew about John Renbourn next to Jacqui McShee (Both from Pentangle). But there was a risk, because, I have a special and specific taste in certain type Folk style (instrumentation, performers, etc). This is a live recording in the US in the early 80s, a very controversial date for the recording system… The artificial sound of the eighties acoustic guitars (produced by the famous Ovation guitars, a sound’s disaster!). The other thing that worried me was the instrumentation, will there be electric bass or drums!?
Well, this time my instinct did not disappoint me! This is an traditional live capture: Acoustic guitars with classic sound, McShee’s crystal clear voice with proper instrumentation.
Mention aside is the recording quality, really 5 stars. In short, this is the Folk style that has always touched me.
This album is one of the honorable exceptions to which I refer in music after the seventies.

Originally a two-LP set, this 70-minute concert CD recorded on April 16, 1981 in San Francisco features the core of the band that appeared on The Enchanted Garden — Jacqui McShee on vocals, Tony Roberts on flute, krumhorn, and pipes, John Molineaux on dulcimer, violin, and mandolin, and Keshav Sathe playing the tabla. The repertory is rooted, of course, in English folk music, including “The Trees They Grow High,” a beautiful a cappella number (“Ye Mariners All”), and “John Barleycorn Is Dead.” Renbourn’s playing is showcased throughout, most notably on “English Dance,” a dazzling 3½-minute guitar solo; “Breton Dance,” by contrast, is a vehicle for the entire band. McShee’s crystalline vocals hold much of the spotlight, and the disc is worth owning just for her performance, her presence making this as valuable as any Pentangle release.
