Title: Live On Air 1967-1969
Label: London Calling

London Calling presents Pentangle's Live On Air 1967-1969, including performances from the Danny Thompson Trio with John McLaughlin. The high profile names of John Renbourn and Bert Jansch remain coveted enough to warrant excitement at any retrospective release, but combined with Danny Thompson and Jacqui McShee, this is a delightful insight into one of Britain's finest folk-rock bands to emerge in the late '60s. Pentangle's legacy lies in an abundance of fragile, acoustic wonder spanning six albums with Transatlantic and Reprise Records from 1968 to 1972. Among studio, television and festival appearances, Pentangle visited venues such as the Playhouse Theatre and Paris Theatre for the BBC. These pristine sessions reveal a valuable insight into the creative mindset directing the band in their heyday. Prominently featured here are the only known recordings of Danny Thompson with John McLaughlin and Tony Roberts from 1967, music that would provide a vital bridge to the formation of Pentangle. Digitally remastered, includes a Brian Matthew interview with Jacqui McShee from 1970 and a full color booklet with liner notes and rare images.
