John Renbourn - The Black Balloon (1979 England) @320


This album is one of John's 'medieval' style albums, with 13th and 16th century pieces mixed with a couple of Renbourn tracks. The songs are all credited as being 'traditional arranged Renbourn' - but at least The Pelican and The Black Balloon are certainly not traditional.
The flute is played by Tony Roberts, the tabors by Stuart Gordon.


01 - The Moon Shines Bright
02 - The English Dance
03 - Bourree I and II
04 - Medley- The Mist Covered Mountains of Home-The Orphan-Tarboulton
05 - The Pelican
06 - The Black Balloon


John Renbourn: guitar
Tony Roberts: flutes
Stuart Gordon: Tabors

Thank you! I have several of his albums on vinyl but not this one, it's as good as all the rest. Another one I can highly recommend is Under the Volcano by Renbourn and Stefan Grossman.

A worthy partner for Bert Jansch and later albums continue and expand on Pentangle's work nicely. Many thanks for these!
