Editorial Reviews

The 1985 reunion of the original Pentangle (minus John Renbourn) brought about results better than even the most fervent fan could have imagined. They bring jazz complexity and folk harmonies together as only they can on Sad Lady; Dragonfly; Street Song; Yarrow , and more. CD debut!

Format: Audio CD
It's worth mentioning that while this is indeed the reformed Pentangle, sans Renbourn, it does include both Danny Thompson and Terry Cox. I don't think any of the later Pentangle releases, though they all included Jansch & McShee (until the "Jacquie McShee's Pentangle" era included both Thompson & Cox. I liked this record a lot, possibly as well as REFLECTION, though I haven't listened to this LP (or any LPs) in a long time, and I have the original six in e-format so I hear them often. Most of the later Pentangle releases were well-worth it, by the way. Someone else mentioned SO EARLY IN THE SPRING which was particularly good, as I recall. Again, one I may only have on LP.

This was the late 80s/early 90s McShee/Jansch led Pentangle line up which lead to the later (and in my opinion, stronger) release "So Early In the Spring". But there is some nice work on this one- I partularly like "Open the Door", "Mother Earth" and "Yarrow"- and Bert Jansch's "A Taste of Love" has always been a favorite of mine.

I picked up the original late 60s/early 70s Pentangle albums when I was in college in the mid-90s, and loved their acoustic, melodic blend of folk, blues, jazz, etc. Pentangle broke up for about a decade, and reformed (with some different members) in the 80s, so I picked up "In the Round" and the magic just didn't seem to be there - the gentle, sensitive acoustic feel of their early days was replaced by a more electric, strict-rhythm feel of 80s soft-rock. I hardly listened to that and didn't check out their other later releases, until a few months ago I decided to check the others out online. I liked what I heard and ordered this one, and really like it - it certainly evokes the magic of the early albums (even if it doesn't quite match it), and has much more of the folky, melodic feel than I got from "In the Round" (although, maybe I should give that one another chance?). I also bought "So Early In The Spring" and liked that one, too). While I'd certainly advise starting with the Pentangle's early 6 releases, this one is definitely worth adding to your collection if you like those.
