3 stars This live outing featuring old Pentangle stablemates John Renbourn and Jacqui McShee is a warm and cozy trip down musical memory lane. Featuring a few Pentangle folk gems like "Cruel Sister" and "Turn Your Money Green", as well as gems from their own solo albums like "My Johnny Was A Shoemaker" and "Lindsey", this is two old pals showing how much they enjoy each other's company as well as performing together. Both in their mid sixties, the power of Jacqui's voice is not as forceful as it once was and John has developed a weather worn croak, but who cares? These two icons still thrilled the crowd and Renbourn's guitar skills have not diminished one iota. And McShee's acapella renditions of the haunting "The Nightingale" and the "The Bonny Greenwoodside" should give goosebumps to anyone with a pulse So, if your a long time fan, this album is worth owning.
