Pentangle: Reflection

Ken Barnes, Phonograph Record, December 1971

THE APPEARANCE on the display wall of my favorite local record merchant of Pentangle's fifth album, Reflections, triggered a lightning search of my wallet, pockets, and girlfriend's purse, as I leaped intrepidly forward to wrest it off the wall and shove it in front of the cash register with the hastily-scraped-up ransom. After Cruel Sister had knocked me out, I'd been eagerly awaiting this LP and my anticipation was running high as I rushed home with it.
