1969 Prog Folk Masterpiece on 180g Audiophile Vinyl LP!
Numbered, Limited Edition Yellow & Orange Mixed Color Vinyl - 1,000 Copies!

Basket of Light, originally released in 1969, is the most progressive release by the British folk-rock group Pentangle. Traditional English folk songs are reinterpreted with a mix of jazz, pop and rock influences. The album opener ''Light Flight'' has become their signature song, which was also the theme song from BBC1's first color drama series, Take Three Girls. With Basket of Light, Pentangle proved they could release a progressive, groundbreaking work without keyboards, much studio trickery or even electric instruments.

The original Pentangle was active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. During the recording of Basket of Light, the line-up included Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Terry Cox, Danny Thompson and Jacqui McShee.

Basket of Light is available as a limited edition of 1,000 individually numbered copies on yellow and orange mixed color vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve.

Basket of Light finds them at their most progressive and exciting. Highlights of this album include the buzzing jazz dynamics of 'Light Flight,' their moving rendition of the traditional folk song 'Once I Had a Sweetheart,' their reinvention of the girl group smash 'Sally Go Round the Roses,' and 'Springtime Promises,' one of their finest original tunes.
-Richie Unterberger, AllMusic, 4.5/5
