Q: Great version of Blackwaterside,I also like Bert Jansch's take on it,have you heard the album Basket of Light by the Pentangle-Bert's band?

A: I had my parent's copy of Reflection (one of the first songs I played was Omie Wise) but I don't remember seeing Basket of Light- however, I remember the song Springtime Promises quite well. We must have had it when I was very little!
