Bert Jansch and Pentangle

I have been slowly reading through piles of press cuttings while doing the trading and have just come across the many obituaries of Bert Jansch. So today has been an intensive listening day to the early Bert Jansch albums I have and to Pentangle, who I have a couple of albums of, but which I have never really listened to seriously. I must say, I have enjoyed Pentangle much more than ever in the past - somehow I just didn't give them the serious listen they deserved. Of particular note was the album Cruel Sister, the title track of which has become a firm favourite today.
