As a long time fan of Fairport convention and Sandy Denny, especially the Leige and Leaf album, a friend recommended this little gem to me. What a superb find! There is a bit of a mixture of styles to be found here, mainly British trad/folk, but with tinges of jazz and blues. The players, especially Jansch and Renbourne on guitars and McShee on vocals, are delightful. The rhythmn section (Thompson and Cox) are no slouches either.

All in all a delightful album, one that I would happily recommend to anybody, especially those who enjoy early Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention. I am now off to purchase the rest of their back catalogue!

There was Folk Rock and then there was Pentangle. This debut album by the group, recorded in 1968 is divine brilliance.
Pentangle was formed by Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Terry Cox, Danny Thompson and Jacqui McShee ant the album called The Pentangle brought the most unique form of Folk Rock to that date.
It’s unique blend of Traditional and modern folk songs, Jazz and blues, and early music was a breath of fresh air to the folk world and a commercial success for the band.

All the band members had previously recorded much already and had been successful in their own right. Jansch and Renbourn had recorded both as solo artists and together as a duo. McShee had sung folk and blues for some time and had recorded with Renbourn on his album Another Monday. Cox and Thompson had much experience working with Alexis korner’s Band. And prior to the album being recorded Pentangle performed together and built up a reputation. By the time the album was released Pentangle were a very attractive band in terms of the individual work and collective work as a band. They even had many sessions on BBC Radio One during the early days of the Radio station.
Not only do we get the expert playing of Renbourn, Jansh, Cox and Thompson but we also get the wonderful vocal style of McShee that holds the key to the band’s unique identity.

The album is pure genius of originality. The choice of songs and arrangements is first class. The album begins with the Traditional song Let no man steal your Thyme. McShee gives a beautiful vocal performance backed by an inventive arrangement. The same can be said of Traditional song track seven, Bruton Town. This is a wonderful version of the song.

so you've got bert jansch one of the greatest folk guitarists or guitarists of all time and john renbourne the most immatated guitarist of his time,jacqui mcshee who i can only discribe as the beth orton of her time (she also shares likeness' with nico from the velvet underground), and danny thompson on bass and terry cox on drums and what do you get?...possibly the greatest fusions of folk, jazz, blues of all time, possibly even one of the greatest albums of its time. This record is quintessentially sixties. If you like your blues, your folk, your jazz, buy this album. I love it and you will too, i can almost guarantee.

I confess that until Bert Jansch died recently I had never heard of Pentangle. I was however so impressed with what those on Radio 2 and 6 Music had to say about his guitar playing that I looked him up on Amazon. I ordered The Pentangle even though I knew it was folk. Now no offence to those Folkies out there but it is a genre that I, until now have happily avoided simply cos it ain't my thing. This album though I found very listenable. So whilst I am by no means a convert I can certainly see where the adulation for Bert Jansch and of course the rest of Pentangle came from. However large your collection is, a copy of The Pentangle will enlarge it out of all proportion. RESPECT the late great Bert Jansch.

I was a very early fan of Pentangle from listening to John Peel and was already a firm fan of Bert Jansch - possibly the most original folk guitarist of all time. And Jacqui MacShee has the sweetest voice of all three of the great Brit female folk singers of the late 60's/70's - though Sandy Denny remains the most characterful and moving for me and Maddy Prior has maybe the best compromise between sweetness and "movingness" - if there is such a word! I saw Pentangle live at the Afon Lido in a day long festival when they were joint top of the bill with, of all people, Pink Floyd! Both were great live. Whilst I bought most of the Pentangle vinyl LPs at the time, this remains my favourite. And the naff titled "Pentangling" is electric Brit folk at it's most imaginitive and best. The bonus tracks don't add anything much, though.
