Traditional and contemporary folk from the British Isles




In February 2007 the original members of PENTANGLE received a BBC Radio 2 Lifetime Achievement Award from Sir David Attenborough. On 29th June 2008, exactly 40 years since the recording of their monumental live album Sweet Child at the Royal Festival Hall, they 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 captures the band in a series of scintillating performances. Bert Jansch supervised the mixing and sequencing and John Renbourn prepared the album masters before their untimely deaths in 2011 and 2015 respectively.

“Finale is a magnificent record in all respects. Treasure this set, for we’ll not see the like of Pentangle again.”  David Kidman, FolkRadioUK

Respected music journalist and long time fan Peter Paphides provides a fascinating insight into the significance of these recordings by contributing sleeve notes specially commissioned for this 3LP set.

Finale was recorded live during the 2008 tour and sees the original line-up revisit their classic repertoire, a career retrospective for the halcyon years 1967-73.

Pushing the boundaries in many ways, history has acknowledged Pentangle as one of the most exciting and innovative combos in the folk world, who’s influences have been at the forefront of the folk-jazz scene. Eternally relevant and cutting edge, the like of which we are unlikely to see again.
