Open the Door songs Product Information
Open the Door album for sale by Pentangle was released Jul 17, 2006 on the Talking Elephant label. When the beloved British folk outfit Pentangle reformed in 1982 (minus John Renbourne), they came together renewed and strengthened by their outside exploits. Their first studio album after their reunion, OPEN THE DOOR, reflects a new muscularity undergirding the old Elizabethan coloratura. Bert Jansch's dexterous guitar playing (his solo instrumental "The Dolphin" is a highpoint) provides the setting for Jaqui McShee's glittering, other-worldly vocals, and the rhythm section of Danny Thompson and Terry Cox is as subtle as ever. Open the Door CD music contains a single disc with 10 songs. ...See Full Description

||Not up to par.|
Pentangle's 1985 reunion album is not as good as their past or future albums as the chemistry between these super musicians seems to be absent on this outing. Perhaps that is why bassist Danny Thompson never returned to the band after cutting this disc. However, it's still a must have for Pentangle and Jansch fanatics [like me].

||Like a fine aged wine...|
Maybe 1982 was not a good year for mature and refined adult music at its best but I'll bet this album will only gain stature with age. For those who complain that Pentangle wasn't imitating their old sound on this album give it a try and actually listen to it. The sound may be smoother but the spirit is the same. This is not background music. Sit down with it like a fine aged wine.
