Pentangle 2008 Reunion Being Released As Double Album


(Prog) A 2CD set recorded during Pentangle's reunion tour in 2008 is to be released on October 7. The package is described as "beautifully recorded," capturing the band "in a series of scintillating performances.

The comeback trek saw the classic lineup of Bert Jansch and John Renbourn, singer Jacqui McShee, bassist Danny Thompson and drummer/percussionist Terry Cox team up for the first time since they split in 1973.

"Its long awaited release by Topic now comes with added poignancy in the knowledge that Bert Jansch supervised the mixing and sequencing and John Renbourn prepared the album masters before their untimely deaths in 2011 and 2015 respectively.

"Pentangle was one of the most exciting and innovative groups in the world, genuinely pushing the boundaries of folk and jazz in a way that defied categorization. They enjoyed an unprecedented degree of worldwide success for an acoustic band and their influence and musical impact was clearly still revered and relevant forty years later." Read more here.
