John Renbourn's Ship of Fools

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
In addition to being called Ship of Fools, this album is credited to John Renbourn's Ship of Fools, signaling that it is not a Renbourn solo album, but rather a group effort.

Tony Roberts plays wind instruments, as he did in the John Renbourn Group, with Scott Breadman, producer Mitch Greenhill, and Michael Tempo ...

Like New
Like New - FAST Ship!! This CD comes from a private collection of a millionaire Chemist from the DuPont Company. Due to the massive size of this collection it is more likely that ... the CD was only played one time. The cases from this collection still have the shiny new feeling but may have a ding or two from the way the auction company packed them. Read more Show Less

Tony Roberts plays wind instruments, as he did in the John Renbourn Group, with Scott Breadman, producer Mitch Greenhill, and Michael Tempo adding various percussion instruments. Renbourn is joined on the guitar by Steve Tilston, who also adds mandolin. The music is stately traditional British folk in Renbourn's familiar manner, and the mixture is also familiar, with "Cobbler's Jig/Maltese Brawls" the instrumental and the album concluding with an a cappella hymn, "Travellers' Prayer." The album is thus a worthy successor to the John Renbourn Group albums A Maid in Bedlam and The Enchanted Garden.
