Pentangle/John Renbourn

Jerry Gilbert, Sounds, 1971

DECEMBER, ASIDE from its obvious festive revelries, has also been notable for the temporary withdrawal of the Pentangle. In the meekest possible way they have grown almost magically during the course of the year and reached a sublime position entirely on their own terms.

At last, they have taken a holiday.
