3 stars 3.5 stars if I could.

Gryphon's debut contains mostly rearranged traditional pieces (some from the 1400s or before), such as "Kemp's Jig", with a few by the band itself, such as "Touch and Go". This album is the epitome of early folk music, with heavy emphasis on the double reed instruments -- the bassoon and krumhorn, that is.

This album, in my humble opinion, is not Gryphon's strongest, but it is the one most influenced by early renaissance music. If you are already familiar with Gryphon's other works or renaissance music, then you should definitely check this album out. The band was revolutionary in playing rock with unusual winds, but this album is very traditional sounding. My favorite tracks are "Kemp's Jig", "Touch and Go", and "The Unquiet Grave".
