An excellent collaboration between this pair of folk guitar virtuosos, Under the Volcano includes seven guitar duets and a solo piece by each of the principals. Although the guitar picking is primarily acoustic, the duo occasionally uses understated electric guitar for accents and tonal color. The material is a mix of traditional and original, the playing superb. Grossman and Renbourn combine their talents and mix of styles here to produce appealing instrumental music of rare beauty and taste.
