AllMusic Review by

Eric Tingstad has made a successful career for himself with his acoustic blends of guitar/oboe compositions, mostly with Nancy Rumbel. Their releases such as Legends, In the Garden and others have set standards for fine craftsmanship and excellence. Before discovering his current formula, Tingstad released two albums of solo guitar, in 1982 and 1984, which stand up well next to the works of Leo Kottke, though they are closer to the original Windham Hill titles by Ackerman or De Grassi. Seven tracks from On the Links and six from Urban Guitar comprise this collection. For fans of solo acoustic guitar, Renewal will more than satisfy.
