John Renbourn's Final Recordings To Be Released

John Renbourn

(Prog) The final recordings made by John Renbourn before his death are to be released by Riverboat Records this summer. Joint Control, by John Renbourn & Wizz Jones, is issued on September 9 and features songs recorded in the days before Pentangle founder Renbourn's death in March of last year from a heart attack at his home in Hawick in the Scottish borders.

The pair had been touring in the months before Renbourn's passing and recorded 13 songs - one of them an original piece called Balham Moon. Jones says: "It was always a great pleasure to meet up with John and play the odd gig together over the 50 plus years that we've known each other, so when the opportunity arose about three years ago for us to tour together - I jumped at the chance.

"It proved to be a truly wonderful experience which ended all too soon. With a giant personality and sense of humor that endeared John to everyone, he was a joy to be with and in those final few years we became bosom friends as never before." Read more here.
