All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Originally a two-LP set, this 70-minute concert CD recorded on April 16, 1981 in San Francisco features the core of the band that appeared on The Enchanted Garden -- Jacqui McShee on vocals, Tony Roberts on flute, krumhorn, and pipes, John Molineaux on dulcimer, violin, and mandolin, and Keshav Sathe playing the tabla. The repertory is rooted, of course, in English folk music, including "The Trees They Grow High," a beautiful a cappella number "Ye Mariners All", and "John Barleycorn Is Dead." Renbourn's playing is showcased throughout, most notably on "English Dance," a dazzling 3½-minute guitar solo; "Breton Dance," by contrast, is a vehicle for the entire band. McShee's ...

McShee's crystalline vocals hold much of the spotlight, and the disc is worth owning just for her performance, her presence making this as valuable as any Pentangle release.

    A Step Beyond Pentangle

    Renbourn, McShee and their cohorts take the Pentangle esthetic and add Eastern music elements. This recording was made in 1981 and predated much of the world music boom. Some of the numbers go on a bit too long but fans of the Pentangle should find it interesting. The group never followed this up as far as I know.
