2 stars I have already bought this album from the duo Lees-Wolstenholme (I've tried to understand why the return of Wolstenholme also represented, in the same time, the division of BJH in two separate sub-groups...I cannot accept that!). By the way the album is enjoyable, good in particular the new tune Festival! which has a particular fresh arrangement. Many classic pieces re-arranged: Hymn is very lower acoustic guitar played; Titles is not acoustic guitar played; in Loving Is Easy you can hear harmonica; better are the eternal Mocking Bird (also not at the level of the original track which was in an orchestral arrangement) and The Iron Maiden that seems taken from the 1970 album. For Festival! and Star Bright four star rating but for the classic re-arranged.....I (strongly) disagree with the opinion of whom says it's better than the original!! (how you can say that?). The new songs of this album are all good tunes, revealing good contribution by Wolstenholme. The (remaining?) other five are or faithfull to the original sound or without the mordant of the classical spirit!!! (nothing new!). Good as a compilation album, good only for fans... (P.S. I'm a lover of the music of BJH!)
