In stock

Basket of Light is the most progressive and complex release by the British folk-rock group Pentangle. Traditional English folk songs are reinterpreted with a mix of jazz, pop and rock influences. Everything their previous works promised is fulfilled here. The album opener Light Flight has become their signature song. If there is a prog folk masterpiece then it is Basket of Light. Pentangle proved they could release a progressive, ground-breaking work without keyboards, much studio trickery or even electric instruments. The original Pentangle was active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The original line-up includes Bert Jansch (vocals and guitar) and John Renbourn (vocals and guitar).
