4 stars It's been a while since I've listened to this - man is it good. Gordon Giltrap has always been a favorite, but this is my personal "stranded on an island" album from him.

The melodies and performance and writing are a perfect blend of light and dark. The Giltrap sound prevails on each selection. BUT! the highlight to me is the additional musicians on the recording. It's a who's who of prog/folk legends, and especially John G Perry. Combined w/Ian Mosley on drums, it is a perfect fit for the playful, yet introspective compositions that Giltrap offers up.

It's good to see that Gordon Giltrap is still quite active, and touring w/Rick Wakeman some. Would love to see that!

If you love that trad English/folk/classical/progressive group effort, done with expertise and grace, this is a perfect addition to your collection.
