Formed in 1967, 'The Pentangle' was inspired by 'Bert and John', a collaborative album by folk musicians Bert Jansch (b. 3
November 1943, Glasgow, Scotland) and John Renbourn. Vocalist Jacqui McShee, an established figure on the traditional circuit,
who had been working with John for a year and had appeared on his album 'Another Monday' then joined. The lineup was
completed by Danny Thompson (b. April 1939; bass) and Terry Cox (drums), both of Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated, in a
quintet which would also embrace blues and jazz forms.
