honoured for Lifetime Achievement at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, the
legendary status of the original Pentangle is beyond question.
Less known, though, are the great albums made by the reconstituted
Pentangle between 1984-94.
Built around original members Jacqui McShee and Bert Jansch, with
guitarist Peter Kirtley, drummer Gerry Conway, and Nigel Portman Smith
on bass, the group created a magical sound all of their own.
This double CD brings together the highlights from this Pentangle
line-up; Their final studio album, the epic ‘One More Road’, with their
swansong, ‘Live 1994’. These discs capture the band performing old
favourites and overlooked gems with a fantastic new energy.
As Bert Jansch recently said of the ‘One More Road’ album; “It more than
holds its own against the classic albums made by the first line up”.
Both CDs have been digitally re-mastered and are now reissued together
on CD for the first time, with the full agreement of the band.
The accompanying 20 page booklet features extensive liner notes,
including interviews with the band, plus an additional note by Jacqui
McShee, lyrics to many of the featured tracks and rare band photos.
