"The second of our reissues from The Village Thing catalog is this wonderful 1972 LP by the talented duo Ian Hunt and John Turner. Hunt & Turner got together in the summer of 1970, after having worked as some of the most in-demand session musicians of the West Country. Turner was an accomplished string bass player, while Hunt was already a big name on the Bristol scene, playing great guitar and writing songs. They moved around Bristol's Troubadour Club, which Turner had run for several years, and once the duo was arranged, they expanded their art around the UK and Europe. With this LP, they gathered a small amount of success, reaching #6 on the Melody Maker folk charts. More fabulous folk sounds, plenty of crystalline acoustic guitars and delicious vocals, at times reminiscent of CSN&Y and relatives. Hunt & Turner, who, besides their fab vocal duties, already play acoustic & electric guitars, electric and string bass and bongos, are occasionally augmented by John Merritt on bass guitar and Rod Matthews on percussion. Includes an insert with the lyrics."
