Bert Jansch’s ground-breaking virtuoso acoustic guitar playing is in full evidence on this, his first solo album.
His impressive list of admirers include Jimmy Page, Neil Young, Noel Gallagher, Bernard Butler and Johnny Marr. Jansch recorded the album on a borrowed guitar and with a tape recorder in his flat. It deservedly earned him much praise at the time for his innovative technique and powerful songs.
This album also has Jansch’s biggest hit, the haunting Needle Of Death, written about the death of a friend due to heroin overdose. Without a doubt, Bert Jansch is British folk at its best.
