Early Pentangle albums get deluxe heavyweight vinyl reissues

From Loudersound.

Pentangle are to have three of their first four albums, along with a 1970s compilation, reissued on deluxe heavyweight vinyl.

As a result of new deal with US specialist label Renaissance Records, the band’s 1968 debut album The Pentangle, 1969’s ‘breakthrough’ third album Basket Of Light and 1970’s fourth album Cruel Sister, are all to be reissued, along with the 1973 compilation album Pentangling.

Pentangle started out in 1967 with the original line-up of Jacqui McShee (vocals), John Renbourn (vocals and guitar), Bert Jansch (vocals and guitar), Danny Thompson (double bass), and Terry Cox (drums). The band’s unique sound was an eclectic mix of folk, jazz, blues, and rock influences.

Renaissance Records will start with the release of their debut album, The Pentangle, Basket Of Light and Cruel Sister onto deluxe 180g gram vinyl in late August of 2021. The remaining greatest hits album, Pentangling will be released in September of 2021. These albums will include extra incentives such as trading cards of the original band members, lyric sheets, lost photos, and more when you purchase them exclusively with Renaissance Records.
