John Renbourn

on Mon Jan 08, 2018 1:40 pm
The crown goes to John K for this one. What do I mean by that you say? Well. He was the one who got me into Mr Renbourn back in 2012, thus showing me his critically acclaimed '68 album - "Sir John Alot Of Merrie Englandes Musik Thyng And Ye Grene Knyghte". From that day on it changed my life regarding music and playing. John Renbourn was quite a guy, hey!

Unfortunately John passed in 2015. However, I was lucky enough to see him live in 2012 at the Mac theater in Birmingham, right at the front, row A (I filmed it) ... It blew me away !

I have used John's music here and there via my MR videos the last 5 years of filming for my channel. I have also over the years obtained many rare and cool vinyls from Renbourn, all being superb!

This was the first John Renbourn song I ever heard, "Lady Goes To Church", cheers John!  Cool

Technique is key and John was the master.

Love this track from SJAoMEMT&YGK. The recorders on the JR composition "Morgana" (all courtesy of David Munrow, misspelled Monroe on the album cover) are wonderfully limpid, particularly at 2:10. Terry Cox plays African drums and Roderick Skeaping bass viol.

A splendid track from one of his best albums (imo). I have two original '68 mono pressings of that album on vinyl. One in mint condition and one not.

The track "Morgana" I actually used for one of my MR vids back in 2013.Thanks for reminding me, John! Very Happy
