After waiting nearly 35 years we finally have the second much anticipated major release by Bert Jansch from the 1970s, Santa Barabra Honeymoon - the first being the magnificent L A Turnaround.

L A Turnaround re-introduced Bert Jansch as a solo artist after the split of Folk Supergroup 'Pentangle' in the 1970s. Quite rightly it elevated him to the top of his field as one of the most venerated folk artists of his generation. It also confirmed him as a superlative guitarist and gifted song-writer and interpreter of English folk songs.

By contrast, I believe that Santa Barbara Honeymoon may have been complicit in starting Jansch on the slide to near obscurity in the 80s and 90s from which he has only recently been rescued.

By any objective measure, this is an appalling record. It should be required listening on any course about musical production as an example of 'how not to'. I actually wonder if Mr Jansch could even successfully pursue a claim against the producer Danny Lane for the detriment to his standing as a musician.

What do I object to? Well imagine if Simon Cowell was allowed to produce a serious musical project and this is what you would get. A 'new orleans' style jazz band, a gospel chorus and (I kid you not) 'Boney-M-style' steel drums as backing for Bert Jansch. The least objectionable production is when Lane thinks a bit of rock is called for. Now, I am all for musical experimentation but when it comes at the price of seriously destroying the fine musicianship and subtle songwriting of the performer then something is seriously wrong.

And here is the pity.

First released in 1975, this is the tenth solo album from Bert Jansch, the maker of some of the finest music of his age.

As usual with Jansch, this is another delightful step along his musical journey. He continued to build on his british blues/folk background, mixing it with his more recent West coast influences to produce a gentle, heartfelt album distinct from previous works whilst still incorporating all of their elements.

Jansch’s voice is the dominant sound here, his unique and imperfect delivery put to good effect as he gently leads us through tales of love and loss. His guitar is still there as well, with melodies gushing from it like water over a weir. However, here it is mixed with a rich palette of other instruments (including a synthesiser!) to produce a much richer sounding album than his earlier works. The tone of the album is mournful, but with a dash of hope thrown in and is ultimately uplifting. The standout tracks for me are ‘Blues Run The Game’, with a different (and I think better) feel than Simon and Garfunkel’s more celebrated recording, and the opening ‘Love Anew’, an amazing track with which to open an album.

This 2009 remaster contains the original 12 tracks, all with an excellent remastering that allows Bert to really shine, and 6 bonus tracks including one alternative studio recording and 5 tracks taken from a concert. There are also some decent liner notes. Real care has been taken with this release, it’s a five star album and a five star release. Recommended.

LA Turnaround was always going to be a hard album to follow. I actually quite like the songs on this album, and it contains some of Bert's best vocal performances. It's just let down by the OTT production - this wasn't the first time a producer had used the kitchen sink (Nicola, 1967). Lyrically, I think the album is quite strong and with the addition of bonus tracks (mostly live) it's a nice little package. The best of the bonus tracks is a stripped-down version of Build Another Band - written for Danny Thompson - which gives a hint of what the album could have sounded like without the horns and steel drums (what on earth possessed them?!)
