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.
