Pentangle, the five points of light being Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox. Formed in 1967, they took Trad folk and blended it with a mixture of jazz, blues and a sprinkling of rock. Hugely successful, they even had a hit single with the song "Light Flight" which was the theme to the BBC series "Take Three Girls". The band toured extensively, and made numerous TV appearances. This French TV special from 1972 captures the band in all its glory as they work their way through six songs from the albums "Solomon's Seal", and "Reflection." While others were combining folk with rock with varying degrees of success, these alchemists blended Trad folk with jazz and blues in an original recipe which has not been duplicated since
