"Re-issue of 1984 album. Herein Andy Bole performs some stunning acoustic guitar work, adding some electric passages here and there (for good measure and variety), which make the arrangements both richly engaging and hauntingly beautiful. Bole is a master of guitar techniques from the world over, and many are handsomely displayed here (including an innovative plectrum style, belaying his love for the bouzouki and Greek Rembetika music). He's performed in Europe and N. America alongside members of both ELO and Fairport Convention, as well as Progressive Rock mainstays, Mike Oldfield and Dave Stewart. It is seldom that a musician following in the wake of such luminaries as Bert Jansch and John Renbourn will steer away from those influences enough to truly become a unique sort of 'Troubadour' in his/her own right; But by means of a combined foray into the worlds of virtuosity and eclecticism, and by creating music so skillfully inventive in this sort of 'candid' setting, Andy Bole has done exactly that."
