JDIZZY's 365 # 288: Cruel Sister

Cruel Sister - Pentangle (1970)

British folk of the traditional variety runs head-on into psych on today's selection. Coming from Pentangle's glory days where they were rewriting the rules of their genre, it is a creepy ancient ballad made gloriously trippy by the power of John Renbourn, Bert Jansch, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox. Whenever you see an album with Pentangle or any of these players' names on it, now know that it is an unequivocal badge of quality and well worth your time, purchase and brain waves.
