Crimson Gold presents a new compilation which gathers together 45 classic recordings, from Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, and Pentangle. The release begins in the mid-’60s with solo recordings by Bert Jansch and John Renbourn and concludes with their coming together and the unique English folk sound of Pentangle.

CD 1 opens the set with solo recordings by Scottish folk musician, Bert Jansch. Best known as an acoustic guitarist and singer-songwriter, Jansch was a leading figure in the ’60s British folk revival and is known for classic folk recordings such as ‘Angie’ and ‘Needle Of Death’ – both of which are included here. His unique style of guitar playing would go on to inspire generations of musicians including Johnny Marr, Jimmy Page, and Graham Coxon.

CD 2 continues to explore the roots of Pentangle with influential tracks by John Renbourn such as ‘The Hermit’, ‘Nobody’s Fault But Mine’ and ‘The Earle Of Salisbury’ which showcases his distinctive guitar playing technique. Also included on this disc are tracks from the 1966’s collaborative ‘Bert and John’ album, including ‘Goodbye Pork Pie Hat’ and ‘After The Dance’.

CD 3 completes the set with 15 stand-out tracks from folk-rock group Pentangle. Formed around the virtuoso guitarists Bert Jansch and John Renbourn, the group were able to master a variety of genre spanning styles and developed a cult- following. Classic tracks here include ‘Light Flight’, ‘Let No Man Steal Your Thyme’ and ‘Once I Had A Sweetheart’.
