Open the Door is an album by Pentangle. The band had split in 1973 and reformed in the early 1980s. By the time this album was recorded, John Renbourn had left the band to enroll in a music degree course and his place was taken by Mike Piggott. The other band members were unchanged from the original Pentangle line-up: Terry Cox, Bert Jansch, Jacqui McShee and Danny Thompson.

The album was released in 1985 on Spindrift, SPIN 111. Some sources give 1982, 1983 or 1984 (perhaps because recording began in 1983 and the 'published' and 'copyright' dates on the album are 1984, suggesting that it had been planned for an earlier release). In the USA It was released on Varrick VR017 (LP) and CRV017 (Cassette). It was rereleased in 2006 on Talking Elephant, the longest time that has ever passed for an original Pentangle album to become available on CD. Compared to their previous recordings it was relatively poorly reviewed. Varrick is an American label that also brought some Fairport Convention albums back into print.
