As Bert's 2nd album, this is one of his purest and simplest recordings. His style is still based solely around the guitar and his voice and his voice is still pure and clean. After listening to this album, you will feel like you're getting to know Bert; he tells how his father left when he was young in Want my Daddy Now, the notes on the back are written as if you know Bert and his friends already and he even laughs in the track A Man I'd Rather Be. The album includes some brilliant instrumental tracks like the dreamy Tinker's Blues (written for his flatmate's cat) and Lucky Thirteen (with John Renbourne). If you want to get a good introduction to Bert Jansch I would reccomend getting this and his first album, for a comrehensive introduction and taste of his music.

Format: Audio CD
These are the first Bert Jansch albums I've heard, consisting almost entirely of the singer accompanied only by his own guitar. Although he's tagged as 'folk', this mainly self-penned material consists simply of personal experience (mostly love) and observation. Tinged here and there by blues and jazz influences, it's a short step from here to the 'singer-songwriter' tag. The first album contains six short instrumentals among its fifteen tracks, including a worthy version of Davy Graham's classic, 'Angie', and emphasises his excellence on guitar. His voice is soft, deep and melancholy almost throughout, whereas on the second album there are moments of insouciance and there are signs of a broadening vocal approach. Of the two duets with John Renbourn, 'Lucky Thirteen' provides a highlight, while of the songs, only 'Anti-Apartheid' sounds awkward. This is a collection of sometimes compelling, always honest performances by a then (1965) budding talent.

Back in the 60s the Percy Hedley School For Spastics was in danger of closure . Music men with a conscience descended on Newcastle City Hall for a fundraiser . Eric Burdon flew in from the States and needed a song sheet to shake the dust off his old hits . Alan Hull was cheerfully blooted and kept snapping guitar strings . The highlight of a great night was when a curly haired man had to be helped on stage since his legs did not appear to be working too well . He was gingerly placed in a centre stage chair and a guitar was stuck onto his lap . Over the next five minutes he provided a master class in acoustic guitar playing . He was then helped away . This was my introduction to Bert Jansch and I have been a fan ever since . This album comes from 1965 . John Renbourn joins in on two tracks but otherwise this is just Bert and his guitar and voice . Of Lucky Thirteen Bert hopes " you will like listening to this tune as much as I like playing it " to which John Renbourn has added one word - SMASHED . Bert tells you in the notes that he drank several bottles of wine during the recording which took about three hours . The album is not his best but is still enjoyable . Two points of information - the girl on the cover is Beverly Martyn and the Percy Hedley is still going strong as a renowned centre of excellence .

It's extraordinary that this, and the single album of It Don't Bother Me, have better reviews than the debut 'blue' album -perhaps it's because the former has a much lesser reputation and only confirmed fans buy it. Whereas the blue album is superb, the best of its kind, by his second album Bert already seemed to be running out of ideas. Musically it's still good, if far less striking than the first; but the lyrics are stuffed with every kind of po-faced 60s cliché. Anti-Apartheid, for example: terrible title, terrible song; in fact, possibly the worst 'issue' song ever recorded by a major artist. And Bert saying it don't bother him is about as convincing as Alan Partridge saying how really, really *amused* he feels when criticised. In other words: I'm pretty sure it do bother him.

Fortunately Bert was to get a second wind by interpreting traditional songs, and through his role in Pentangle; but as a songwriter he had no more to say. Five stars for the first of these albums, three for the second.

It's worth pointing out that two tracks from the original IDBM have been omitted for reasons of space (and yet Anti-Apartheid made the cut!). At least they had more sense than to cut any of the blue album tracks.

Classic Bert thank God it's not one of his new CD's. If you love Bert as he was before he went all weird then this is for you. It is almost a relief to play this CD.
