In 1993, ex-Pentangle leader John Renbourn and ex-Incredible String Band leader Robin Williamson toured together, cleverly billing themselves as the Impenetrable String Tangle. The live WHEEL OF FORTUNE captures the spirit of that tour, showing how well the two multi-instrumentalists mesh together. Williamson's fascination for obscure early instruments like the Celtic harp gives an authentic feeling to Renbourn's medieval melodies, while Renbourn's extraordinary guitar playing grounds Williamson's flights of fancy. Those unfamiliar with the Incredible String Band should be aware that Williamson has a voice on which there is no middle ground. You'll either love it or hate it. That caveat aside, any fan of traditional British folk should find WHEEL OF FORTUNE a good-humored delight.
