Basket Of Light

(Earmark) Used LP $18.00

The third album from the original line-up: a jazz rhythm section (Danny Thompson on string bass and Terry Cox on drums); the virtuoso guitar pairing of John Renbourn and Bert Jansch; and the soaring, enigmatic singing of Jacqi McShee. Pentangle sounds unlike anything else. Released in 1969, the album is infused with complex time signatures and arresting musical arrangements — not really folk music as broadly recognized, but rather something more exotic and strange. Sitar and glockenspiel sometimes add just the right flavor, never over-egging the pudding and always refining the resulting taste to perfection with a light sparkle. Italian pressing from 2001 on 180-gram vinyl
