'Basket of Light' is the most progressive and complex release by the British folk-rock group Pentangle. Traditional English folk songs are reinterpreted with a mix of jazz, pop and rock influences. Everything their previous works promised is fulfilled here. The album opener 'Light Flight' has become their signature song. If there is a prog folk masterpiece then it is 'Basket Of Light'. Pentangle proved they could release a progressive, ground-breaking work without keyboards, much studio trickery or even electric instruments.
