"A new studio album from one of the cornerstones of England's contemporary acoustic folk and folk blues guitar scene. A year in the making! Joined by various musical companions on a number of the tracks: John Renbourn (guitar, ex-Pentangle), Jacqui McShee (vocals, Pentangle), Clive Palmer (banjo, Incredible String Band, COB, Famous Jug Band), Gerry Conway (drums, percussion, Fairport Convention, Fotheringay and too many others to mention!), Bernd Rest (guitar, Rosie Brown), Martin Wheatley (National Tricone tenor guitar & ukelele, Hula Bluebirds), Simeon Jones (harmonica, sax one cut, played with Lazy Farmer and others), Gary Ricard (guitar, Balham Alligators). The album contains songs representing Wizz? definitive original guitar techniques (as on his rendition of 'Weeping Willow Blues'). Splendid guitar interaction with John Renbourn on a fine acoustic version of Cannonball Adderley's 'Sermonette'. A beautifully arranged version of 'Omie Wise' with both John Renbourn and Jacqui McShee, which smacks of Pentangle with Jacqui and Wizz? voices blending nicely. The album brings back Wizz and Clive Palmer playing together on a couple of songs, including the stunning and hypnotic 'Paris' (on which they both play banjo), appropriate, as they busked together in Paris streets over 40 years ago. Still traversing the landscape he helped to pioneer in England -- folk, American blues, cowboy songs, jazz, the English tradition, broken hearts, and something entirely unique, THIS is Wizz Jones, in superb voice and guitar playing form."
