Raga guitar and Olde English…

Ok in full disclosure some time too much Dead can fill your brain with some weird things. The panacea for these ills tonight was a little John Renbourn. A great lost talent and one of the better guitar pickers out there.

sir john

So with a cover and title reminiscent of Monty Python at their best/worst the classic Sir John Alot of Merrie Englandes Musyk Thyng & Ye Grene Knyghte managed to exorcise the Dead from my brain this evening.

All I can say if you like guitars and have not listened to Rebourn you do not really like guitars. He is one of the most creative guitar players that graced vinyl ever. Of course that is just an opinion. He is however an expressive player who can shift between classical, folk, jazz blues and Byrds style raga in the same track without missing a beat. Go on do yourself and your brain a favor and clean it out with some John Renbourn you really will thank me for it.

Also why oh why do people feel the need to write on their record sleeves????
