Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
3 stars 3,5 stars really!!!

This second effort is amazingly enough a double album, released the same year as their debut. It is a good indication that they had an extraordinary and fruitful collaboration and plenty ideas were blossoming even quicker than the flowers in the hair of the hippies. Most Pentangle fans will rate this album as their favourite, but personally I find this album a bit uneven but there are some real gems with high drama to stick you enough spine chills to give you a solid cold in the dog days of summer. Such is the case with No More My Lord were Jaqui dishes her plaintive vocals with such dexterity and greatly underlined by Cox's tom works that you wish the song lasted twice that long.

This double disc affair (remember that the Beatles had just managed the double white album) is a combination of a live album and studio recordings mixing also many short tracks - which could've easily doubled in length without problems - and longer tracks but there is not one single moment of self-indulgence even if some tracks have a lesser interest for the progheads; among the highlights are A woman Like You and No Exit (a guitar duo). The only time that individuals are put forward is in the Three Part Thing, but there is a section where the bowed bass gives a thoroughly medieval ambiance while the two guitarists are busy experimenting scales - very impressive. Another major highlight is In Time that holds your breath with its superb intensity and real suspense. Although brilliant, one could see that their excellent ideas were still not exploited to the fullest but nevertheless still spine tingling. There are also two songs from jazz great Charlie Mingus - both daring adaptations.

As with most double albums, there are some lesser moments but in this case never any weak ones. This is a true confirmation of the potential they had uncovered in the debut!

4 stars This is my favourite's PENTANGLE record. Beautiful music that stands tall against the test of time. This is on of the children of the hippie-movement, but it does not sound dated or naive. The music is simple and complex in the same time. There is not many rock overtones here, this is pure folk with the clever amount of jazz, blues and medieval music thrown in for a good measure. Renbourn's guitar work is pure delight. Beauty of Jacqui's voice is outshining the rest of the female folk singers. Double bass is the band's trademark.

There are more than twenty tracks on this double album, but it's hard to tell if there's a weak one. It's impossible to choose the peaks here, this craft is more like a plateau, if I may say. Weak tracks are weak only compared to the brilliant ones: Three-Part Thing, remarkable Sovey, Bruton Town, In Your Mind...I won't analyse ever track here, let's just see a few highlights. Well, the most atmospheric one is "A Woman Like You", with incredible guitar work (a think the guitar is tuned in D open tune). The most tribal-sounding one is "Moon Dog", oh what a tune! Anybody sitting on a street with a small hand drum can do it. But it's so powerful.

"The Trees They Do Grow High" is another folk song, full of sorrow and beauty. ANGELO BRANDUARDI (Italian prog-folk singer) made the cover of this song with Italian lyrics. "Sovey" shares the same beauty and it sounds ancient at the same time...

There you go. I can continue with this until the last song is mentioned, but it's quite pointless to repeat the same "lovely" and "beautiful" all the time. Also, there is no point to make some clever comparisons and analysis. For God's sake, it's folk! And it's fine art at first place. The reason I'm giving one star less than five is only because the album does not suits perfectly into the typical progressive rock milieu.But let the music speak for itself.

3 stars Sweet Child is a prog/jazz folk album having a woman as lead singer: this seems the norm of these late 60's. The similarities with Fairport Convention, Trader Horne, Trees and Fotheringay are obvious, except that the psychedelic dimension is not really present, and the rock/hard rock dimension is about inexistant: a connexion with soft bluesy jazz seems more appropriate. I do not find the music very progressive, so that it lies between the prog folk and the prog related styles. The songs are rather delicate and mellow, and the EXCELLENT acoustic bass jazzy rhythms, which is the strongest point on this record, give a warm dimension to the overall music. The very good voice of Jacqui McShee has a slight country style that other female singers of those times do not have. There are a few charming glockenspiel parts. The album sounds like a live one, since one can hear a crowd applauding at the end of the tracks.

Rating: 3.5 stars

Review by Tarcisio Moura
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Originally a double LP, with one live record and one sutdio offering, Sweet Child shows the great band Pentangle still in a kind of embryonic stage. All the basic elements are here: fantastic musicanship of all involved, a wild variety of music styles and tremendous swapping lead vocals from Jacqui McShee and Bert Jansch. They had yet to mastered their sound (something they would eventually achieve in their next work, the brilliant Basket Of Light), but Sweet Child already shows they were something very special and innovative for the time.

The live album often rings more like individual solo performances sometimes backed by the rest of the band. Still, it is a great display of their incredible talents as musicians and singers. Jacqui Mchsee shines on No More My Lord and teh a capella version of So Early In The Spring, while Danny Thompson proves he was one of the best players of the acoustic bass doing a bold rendition of Charles Mingus Haitian Fight Song. Three Dances is another highlight, where the band members show off their skills on three short classical pieces. And, except for the use of a sole electric guitar on a couple of songs, they did it all handling only acoustic instruments. Impressive!

Folk, Blues, R & B, gospel, baroque, jazz.. you name it. They can handle it all. And very well! Although Sweet Child is not their best ever, it is an outstanding achievement for such recently assembled band. There is little prog in here as we know, but, boy, do they play good! If you´re into progressive folk this is a must have. Unfortunatly my Line single CD version is missing 3 tracks from the original double LP. A small price to pay, I guess, since the rest of the record is so rich and varied it is had to believe this band could do it all in just one release. final rating: something between 4 and 4,5 stars.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Pentangle's second album of 1968 is perhaps my favourite of the albums I've heard by the band to date. Double albums are usually tricky to justify, but here Pentangle avoid that issue by not making this a double *studio* album. Whilst the second disc consists of new studio tracks, the first disc is a release of a warm, intimate performance at the Royal Festival Hall in London. Ably teasing out the electric folk, traditional folk, and jazz influences on their sound both in the live performance and in the studio. the Pentangle treat the listener to a true tour de force here.
