Pentangle – Finale – An Evening With… (Topic, 2016)
Topic Records will be releasing Finale. An Evening With… Pentangle. In February of 2007 the original members of influential English folk-rock band Pentangle received a BBC Radio 2 Lifetime Achievement Award from David Attenborough. The following year, on June 29th, 2008, precisely 40 years since the recording of their significant live album Sweet Child at the Royal Festival Hall, Pentangle returned to the very same venue to begin their first British tour since 1973.
Finale was recorded live during the 2008 tour and sees the original line-up revisit their classic repertoire. The beautifully recorded and packaged 2CD set features Pentangle in a series of stimulating performances. Bert Jansch supervised the mixing and sequencing and John Renbourn prepared the album masters before their premature deaths in 2011 and 2015 respectively.
