5 stars Salomonīs Seal is one of the most underrated albums by Pentangle. I have no idea why, but I do remember that it was close to impossible to pick up on vinyl (it was never re-pressed by Reprise). So mybe itīs because few people actually heard it that explains it rather poor status.

Now, when itīs released on CD and re-mastered with co-operation by Mr Renbourn himself, its time to give it justice. The album starts with a cover of "Sally free and easy", beautifully sung by Bert Jansch. Actually, Jansch take the lead vocal on several tracks, for me thatīs a good thing. "The snows" is one of the best performance the group did and their version of Willy OīWinsbury" is a killer, with fine singing from Jacqui. The rest of the album is packed with strong tunes.

So, Salomonīs Seal" is certainly one of the strongest albums Pentange made. Just give it a try and you will agree!!
