Pentangle - Light Flight (Transatlantic Big 128 - 1969)

It seems that Pentangle's Light Flight has always been with me from the start even though it was recorded in 1969, a clear twelve years after I first waddled into the world. I vaguely recall the TV show Take Three Girls, for which the song appeared as the theme tune and I guess the infectious melody lodged itself in my subconsious for a couple of years until I found the song on the Basket of Light LP. With writing credits going to all five prongs of the Pentangle, messers Jansch, Renbourn, Thompson, Cox and McShee, with a clear nod towards Dave Brubeck's Take Five, it's the Shel Talmy produced single though that takes pride of place amongst some of my all time favourite discs.
