‘Finale’ was recorded live during the innovative folk band’s 2008 tour – their first in 35 years - and sees the original line-up (Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox) revisiting classic repertoire. In February 2007 the original members of Pentangle – Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox - received a BBC Radio 2 Lifetime Achievement Award from Sir David Attenborough. On 29th June 2008, marking the 40th anniversary of the recording their monumental live album ‘Sweet Child’ at the Royal Festival Hall, they returned to the very same venue to begin their first British tour since 1973. The beautifully recorded and packaged 2CD set captures the band in a series of scintillating performances. Bert Jansch supervised the mixing and sequencing and John Renbourn prepared the album masters before their untimely deaths in 2011 and 2015 respectively.
