The hunt is cast and ready

Pentangle were such a superb band in their time, probably the jazziest, grooviest folk group of all. When a group has Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox in it, it's hard to single anyone out, but Jacqui McShee, with her wiggly lips, witchy face and clear as a mountain stream voice effortlessly steals the show here, all without ever getting off her stool.

I happen to have watched Pentangle footage on YouTube for half an hour a couple of days ago. Did this happen to anyone else? Is this a synchronized Folk/Jazz/Witchcraft action? Are you part of it?

Pentangle is perfect Winter music, so it could be that or, of course, you could be right and we're part of one massive co-ordinated folk jazz witchcraft brain! Another clip tomorrow.

From what I heard, massive co-ordinated folk jazz witchcraft brains are most active in winter anyway.

(Thank you very much for putting my blog on your link list btw! Highly appreciated.)
