Delight is the word for the 2004 remastering of Angel Delight -- the new digital transfer gives the voices and instruments on the opening track, "Lord Marlborough," almost a live presence, and the disc gets better from there; you can practically hear the action on the instruments throughout this CD, and if that's not enticement enough, then a bonus track of a live version of "The Journeyman's Grace" from November of 1970 featuring Richard Thompson should make it irresistible -- his guitar raises this rendition above the official studio version elsewhere on the disc, and also shows note-for-note what the band lost when he left; and the annotation by Simon Nicol is icing on the cake.
