Auf “A Man I’d Rater Be (Part II)” kommt das Output BertJanschs aus den späten sechziger und frühen siebziger Jahrenzusammen. Eine absolut unterschätze Ära, die ohne Frage vondem zu der Zeit bereits etablierten Pentangle Soundbeeinflusst war. Die Bandmitglieder Danny Thompson (Bass) undTerry Cox (Schlagzeug) tauchen regelmäßig unter den beteiligtenMusikern auf, ebenso Mary Hopkin, Toni Visconti und DaveMattacks. In dieser Zeit interpretiert Jansch den Pop(„Nicola“), den Blues („Birthday Blues“), experimentiert mithübschen Arrangements („Rosemary Lane“) und Baroque Folk(„Moonshine“). All das kam zu einer Zeit zusammen, in derPentangle Alben veröffentlichten und konstant tourten; zubehaupten, dass Jansch äußerst produktiv war, ist eincharmantes Understatement. „Rosemary Lane“ gilt Kennern alseine der besten Platten Janschs, ein gefälliger Mix austraditionellem Folk und zeitlosen Kompositionen wie „Tell MeWhat Is True Love?“. „Moonshine“ wurde von Danny Thompsonund Tony Visconti produziert. Mary Hopkin sing mit Bert imDuett „The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face“ von Ewan McColl,außerdem dabei sind Aly Bain und der Charles MingusSchlagzeuger Charlie Richmon.

4LP Set im Hardcover-Buchformat. “A Man I’d Rather Be (Part 1)” stellt das bahnbrechende Material von Bert Jansch aus denSechzigern zusammen (neben seinem einzigen Album, das er imDuett mit seinem Pentagle-Bandkollegen John Renbournaufnahm). Die vier LPs stammen somit aus einer Zeit, in der diekreativen Wege von allen zwischen Neil Young und JohnnyMarr begannen. Die LP wurde in nur zwei Jahren geschrieben,aufgenommen und veröffentlicht, was auf der einen Seite dieopulente Musikalität Janschs unterstreicht, aber auch eine Zeitillustriert, in der sich die Musik von einer Minute auf die andereänderte. Auf seiner selbstbetitelten LP zeigt er sein meisterhaftesFingerpicking, illustriert etwas Exotisches aus „Bert And John“und gibt einen beeindruckenden Einblick in die sich veränderndeFolkmusik der Zeit. Für alle die, die sich noch nicht mit demWerk von Jansch auskennen, ist diese Zusammenstellung einabsoluter Leckerbissen, da sich kaum eine stimmigere Produktionfinden lässt. Mit dabei sind die Original-Linernotes von Keith DeGroot und Jansch selbst sowie neue Beobachtungen von BillLeader, der seinerzeit die ersten Aufnahmen Janschsproduzierte sowie niemals zuvor gezeigte Bilder von Brian Shuel."Simply, I think Bert was a truly unique musician. Somehow hecould elegantly bridge differing musical and singing traditions tosing and play in a way that sounded only like Bert Jansch." - AnneBriggs

Release:1971 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
By the time Rosemary Lane was released in 1971, Bert Jansch had covered a great deal of territory on numerous albums as a solo artist, collaborations with John Renbourn and records by the band in which he and Renbourn sang and played guitar, Pentangle. Returning to the intimate economy of his self-titled debut LP from a half-dozen or so years earlier, Rosemary Lane was recorded on portable equipment by engineer/producer Bill Leader and featured Jansch with no accompaniment save his guitar and voice. Rosemary Lane has elements of many of the styles Jansch covered in his extraordinarily eclectic career — from the folk and blues that were his bedrock to medieval music — yet cuts to the heart of his strength as spell-binding storyteller and empathic interpreter of isolation and want. Occasional instrumentals vary the mood that, like much of his work, is usually somber and introspective. Jansch once again lights the way forward with detours through the past. His sparse arrangements seamlessly merge original songwriting and traditional folk songs, while Jansch’s imaginative lyrics charm every step of the way — as if speaking directly to the listener alone. This vinyl release has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes and features liner notes by Richie Unterberger.

Birthday Blues
LP | 1969 | US | Reissue (Superior Viaduct)
25,99 €*
Release:1969 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Bert Jansch’s freewheeling fifth album, Birthday Blues, occupies a unique place in his solo discography. Released in 1969, the same year Basket of Light propelled Pentangle into the UK pop charts, Birthday Blues almost sounds like a Pentangle LP missing John Renbourn and Jacqui McShee. Backed-up by bandmates Danny Thompson and Terry Cox, Jansch neither holds back his characteristic moodiness nor takes himself too seriously. What’s more, Jansch is in love. Heather Rosemary Sewell isn’t just the inspiration for one of the song titles; she also designed the cover, whose Hans Feurer front photo shows Bert holding the couple’s puppy. With just enough of a Donovanesque pop sense, Pentangle producer Shel Talmy keeps the overall feel of these recordings fresh, warm and immediate. As its playfully ambivalent title suggests, Birthday Blues reveals an artist fully comfortable in his own skin. Blues and folk influences are woven together into songs at once directly personal, yet generously light and free. The most “pop” of Jansch’s ‘60s solo recordings and perhaps one of his most underrated, Birthday Blues is a deep and rewarding family affair at the height of his musical powers. This vinyl release has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes and features liner notes by Richie Unterberger.

Jack Orion, Bert Jansch's third album, may have surprised some fans upon its 1966 release, as it features no original compositions by Jansch. While nearly all of the eight tracks are interpretations of traditional folk songs, Jansch's experimental approach breathes new life into this repertoire through his exploratory use of open tunings and passionate, gritty vocals.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Bert Jansch recorded his second album in 1965, just after his self-titled debut earlier that same year. The sessions were a step-up from the intimate, field-recording setting of his first album, although still not labored over too much in the studio. "I figured that the faster I put down the tracks, the faster I could get out of the place," Jansch told NME, "so I just ordered about a dozen bottles of wine, put the microphone in front of me and off I went, for three hours." The lyrics of It Don't Bother Me shift vividly between pure poetic imagery and the hollow resonance of pain. The LP's underrated title song stands as a manifesto for the way Jansch lived at the time. "My Lover," featuring guitarist John Renbourn, has almost sitar-like drones, while "Lucky Thirteen" is a captivating, melancholy instrumental that shimmers with brilliant fingerpicking. This first-time domestic release is remastered from the original tapes and features liner notes by Richie Unterberger. Bert Jansch's It Don't Bother Me remains another essential British folk LP that belongs next to Nick Drake, Roy Harper and John Martyn in every record collection.

Scottish singer-songwriter Bert Jansch recorded his first album in producer Bill Leader's London flat with a borrowed guitar, sitting on the edge of the bed and singing into a portable tape recorder. As author Richie Unterberger writes in the liner notes, "When Bert Jansch's self-titled debut LP was issued in April 1965, he was already a major figure on the British folk scene. His synthesis of traditional British folk with blues and a bit of jazz was at the vanguard of a new generation of UK folk performers, well-versed in past forms but unafraid to venture into new territory. His virtuosic guitar was complemented by a plaintive rough-hewn voice that didn't just document the on-the-road experience, but lived it." Bert Jansch contains all original material, except a shattered cover of Davy Graham's "Angie" that Jansch makes all his own. "Needle of Death," one of the first folk songs to address the consequences of heroin use, yields to a restraint uncommon for Jansch, yet beautifully encapsulates the album's tone of heartfelt conviction. Superior Viaduct is honored to present the first-time domestic release of Bert Jansch's debut, remastered from the original master tapes. For those interested in a unique strand of music that would become a major influence on everyone from Jimmy Page, Nick Drake, Donovan, Neil Young and more – there is no better place to start than here.

Bert Jansch
From The Outside Gold Vinyl Edition
LP | 2016 | US | Original (Earth)
30,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Recalling the elegant simplicity of Jansch's early works, 'From The Outside' sees Jansch return to the uncomplicated yet supremely effective sound of his eponymous debut. This is Bert laid bare – eschewing the more intricate arrangements of his surrounding works for the holy trinity of guitar, banjo and voice, perhaps reflective of his state of mind at the time. Stand-out tracks include ‘River Running’ and ‘Blackbird In The Morning’ which were both (amazingly) omitted from the original vinyl release.One of Bert's rarest releases, this 1985 LP was originally issued as an edition of just 500 copies on the small Belgian label, Konexion. This issue unites the varied track listing of previous versions – both LP and CD, with many cuts appearing here on vinyl for the first time. Remastered from original tapes by Brian Pyle. Limited to 1000 coloured vinyl copies worldwide - 500 gold.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Bert Jansch was often quoted as saying “I’m not playing for anyone, just myself” and this feels no more apparent than on 1979’s ‘Avocet’, his beautifully meditative paean to British birds. This isn’t to say that Jansch was throwing commercial success to the wind, or was unaware of his audience, more that this album feels like a uniquely personal reflection of him.

Moonshine Picture Disc
LP | 1973 | US | Reissue (Earth)
33,99 €*
Release:1973 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
With an output as far reaching as Bert Jansch’s, it’s small wonder that the occasional gem would be overlooked. ‘Moonshine’ - recorded in 1973 - is one such treasure. While the slightly more obvious (and indeed Pentangle-like) albums of 60s Bert are undisputedly wonderful, there is something about the gently brooding style of ‘Moonshine’ that really resonates. Joined by an all-star cast (Ralph McTell! Mary Hopkin! Tony Visconti!) Jansch’s eighth solo album is steeped in tradition, often giving way to a more baroque style of folk music.
