3 stars Given a big boost by Light Flight being used as the theme music to an otherwise forgettable TV drama, the Pentangle's Basket of Light is a grab-bag of folk originals as well as traditional standards, all given a mild twist - a jazz rhythm here, a bit of rock and roll energy there, and some occasional light psych touches. Pleasant enough, and if you are very into traditional British folk you might find it a rewarding experiment, but if you aren't especially into folk the album doesn't deviate from the folk style sufficiently that it'd likely appeal to you. It almost seems as though the mild experimentation with other genres is merely there to add flavour to the folk, rather than being a genuine attempt to blend genres. Three stars.
