JOHN RENBOURN So Early In The Spring|
Castle CMRCD1278 (2006)
Renbourn is widely regarded as a top acoustic guitarist and folk singer/songwriter, and this style doesnít sound as dated as it perhaps should of done. Originally released in 1979, the complete lack of prog or tuneless strumming make it fresh sounding at the height of New Wave.
Typical one man fare with a mixture of self penned tunes and traditional and rural blues songs.
A little samey throughout, however, and itíll only grip you if you like this kind of music, but well packaged and better than it could have been.
