The Bert Jansch estate has worked with Earth Recordings to bring us A Man I'd Rather Be (Part 1). The collection arrives as a 4-LP set in case-bound book or 4-CD set in book-back packaging. With music culled from the highly prolific Jansch's '60s years, namely: 'Bert Jansch'; 'It Don't Bother Me'; 'Jack Orion' and 'Bert & John' -- so Part 1 starts, logically enough, at the very beginning. These four records were recorded in the space of just 2 years, and amazingly enough were of the highest quality.

As a glance at the album title might lead you to guess, L.A. Turnaround was one of the albums that grew out of the time that Scottish folk troubadour Bert Jansch spent in America, adding a certain twist to Jansch’s formerly rather traditional sound. This reissue presents the original 1974 album along with a bonus brace of four additional tracks. CD and LP edition by Earth Recordings.
The title track from the late Bert Jansch’s final album, rightfully presented as a single in the 7” format here. It’s a remarkable song, featuring Jansch’s noble old voice and guitar wrapped around melancholy cello lines from Helena Espvall (Espers). And on the B-side, a sparse demo of the same track, for comparison. 7” single on Earth Recordings, limited to 2000 copies.

The Man I’d Rather Be (Part II) is a 4 LP or 4 CD box set documenting the solo work of the legendary and influential guitarist Bert Jansch. The focus is on the late ‘60s and early ‘70s where Jansch worked from a wider palette, mixing pop, blues and baroque into his folk sound. Bassist Danny Thompson and drummer Terry Cox are the most regular rhythm section used on these recordings and there are guest appearances from Mary Hopkin, Tony Visconti and Dave Mattacks. Many guitarists from Jimmy Page to Neil Young and Johnny Marr to Graham Coxon hold Bert Jansch in high regard.

Bert Jansch, playing Live In Australia, in a cafe in 1998. This is a highly direct set, being mostly comprised only of Bert and his guitar, singing familiar favourite songs and newer lat-90’s material alike.

Bert Jansch has always been a reliable prospect, whether solo or in Pentangle. From The Outside, which features nothing but the good man’s voice, guitar and banjo, was first released in 1985 in a small edition on a Belgian label; what’s more, its reissue history has featured a variety of tracklistings. This Earth Recordings release gathers all tracks from all tracklistings, and remastered them too.
Hey there Bert, I know the feeling. You've just turned twenty-one and you're hoping for a loving appraisal from all your friends, but instead you end up eating pizza and watching The Room in bed. Birthdays, huh? Initially released in 1969, 'Birthday Blues' sees Bert Jansch make slight modifications to the jazz-folk sound apparent in his band The Pentangle, toying with off-kilter instrumentation and also tributing his love of blues. Nice to hear a legend work things out, isn't it?
Bert Jansch’s fifth album for the Transatlantic label was Nicola, one of Jansch’s fullest-sounding records as a result of some luscious string arrangements on some of the tracks. As ever, Jansch’s deft acoustic guitar and rich voice carry his folk material perfectly. This reissue on Sanctuary has been remastered from the original tapes.
Bert Jansch’s seventh and last album for Transatlantic closed off his incredible run of folk material released through the label. With both original numbers and interpretations of traditional songs, Rosemary Lane is a sparse, but beautifully rich collection. This reissue on Sanctuary has been remastered from the original tapes.
Please note the limited versions are now OOP!
Earth Recordings have gone above and beyond on this phenomenal reissue of Bert Jansch’s Avocet. Not only do you get Jansch’s gorgeous and varied folk songs, but newly remastered recordings and stunning packaging.

Both versions have extensive sleeve-notes and newly commissioned illustrations.
Bert Jansch records are always worth hearing, and this 1973 album is certainly no exception. Moonshine finds Jansch in a particularly traditional mode, and includes the likes of Ralph McTell as guests. This reissue is especially worth it for the amazing design of this release: the circular sleeve artwork has been transferred to the record itself as a picture disc!
Bert Jansch and John Renbourn
Bert and John
Bert Jansch and John Renbourne are, quite rightly, two highly respected figures in the British folk tradition. Apparently they shared a flat at the time of Bert and John, and that intimacy really comes through in the sound of these pieces. Their delicious guitar lines mesh around each perfectly. Remastered and reissued by Sanctuary.
The Transatlantic Records section of Bert Jansch’s peerless back catalogue is being reissued by Sanctuary. It Don’t Bother Me followed hot on the heels of his debut, and consequently finds the singer quickly adapting to new circumstances. Can’t fault that rich voice and that delicately picked guitar. Remastered, on CD and LP.
The Transatlantic Records section of Bert Jansch’s peerless back catalogue is being reissued by Sanctuary.

Remastered, on CD and LP.
Live At The 12 Bar finds Bert Jansch in fine form, recorded back in 1995 at a small London club.

First time on vinyl, on Earth Records.
