Gordon Giltrap's progressive period ended with 1982's Airwaves which was released under the name of The Gordon Giltrap Band. By the mid-80's, The Gordon Giltrap Band was no more and Gordon released this solo album. And it is indeed a solo album in the strongest sense as he is the only musician involved. However, the three bonus tracks are full band products featuring female lead vocals. These sound very much like 80's Renaissance, yet are more interesting from a Prog perspective than the main album!

Elegy is wholly instrumental and features acoustic guitar compositions with minimal orchestration and effects. The result is a very laid back affair. It is a pleasant experience but it is far from challenging. As such it is probably of minimal interest for the average Prog fan, but will appeal to fans of acoustic guitar music in general and fans of Giltrap in particular.
