One of the long-standing collaborations of the British folk revival, Bert Jansch
and John Renbourn
's Bert and John
sees the masterful Pentangle
guitarists sparing together through their trademark steel-string guitar styles. Their respective solo careers established them both as leading troubadours of British Isles folk, with little debate and few peers, besides maybe Wizz Jones
and Ralph McTell
. On this album the duo finds good company in each other's techniques, which are quite indistinguishable in both guitar playing and singing through traditional adaptations, blues, and originals in the Anglo-folk style. The duo plays beautifully together in a candid setting.
