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.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 18th July 2016
Rosemary Lane finds Bert Jansch getting back to the basics. In this case that means Jansch playing his guitar without any added orchestrations. These recordings are so basic that you can hear Jansch's fingers rubbing the strings of his guitar. Jansch is one of the great acoustic guitar virtuosos of his generation, equally comfortable playing the blues, American folk music, or, as is largely the case here, the more traditional music of the British isles. The chief attraction here remains listening to this guy play the guitar.
