This is a queer record. On the tracks featuring Bert Jansch singing with just his guitar, which is how I would prefer to listen to him, his head comes out of the left speaker and his guitar out of the right, so that it sounds like a Picasso painting of a Bert Jansch album. Also normally I do not care for Pentangle or for any other accompaniment to his voice and guitar, but in this case I have to make an exception. The first three tracks, two of which include orchestral production and one of which lacks his guitar, are among my favourite recordings of the 60s and of his career. Only track 5 disappoints me, and everything else is very attractive. Singing free of playing the guitar, his voice seems freer and more open. I bought this when it originally came out but I do not remember the effect it had on me. However I have to say that I like this album, having recovered a taste for everything he did in the 60s except for Pentangle.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A number of performers during the folk revival of the 1960s progressed from acoustic to electric or heavier arrangements. And so it was with Bert Jansch.
After Three solo albums and a duo album with John Renbourn, this fourth solo project recorded in 1967 was in mood of its time. Here we get Bert on twelve string and electric guitars, double voice tracking and a fifteen piece orchestra with elaborate arrangements.
Some people don’t like this album because it sees Bert move from the acoustic sound that everyone had been familiar with, and to be fair that he returned to, to a more commerrcial project. But it is easy to over look this album. After all it is very different and in that way very unique compared to what he had done before. He would have been criticised by some for turning out yet another acoustic album.
In fairness what we have is an album that does have much to offer. And it has its own originality. I think it is worthy of a place in a Bert Jansch collection. The album is just not as bad as some would make out. I think it is a good album in many ways.

The title of the album comes from a friend of now wife of Bert’s friend John Renbourn. Nicola was a friend of Judy, John’s wife. Bert and Nicola got into a relationship together during the year of this album.
Bert and John were looking towards developing their new group Pentangle and influences of instruments other than acoustic guitar were coming in fast.
Some people didn’t like the end result of this album and its new direction for Jansch but the album is very good indeed and does have its own originality. It stands out from the previous three solo albums.
The instrumental title track has a sort of baroque woodwind cello and guitar feel to it.

An extract from the Family Announcements section of the Hampstead Gleaner in 1967 :-

Joseph/Jansch ( Kilburn formerly of Edinburgh )

To Nat and Bert at the Transatlantic studios a twelve track turkey Nicola .

A much longed for sister for Al , Donovan and Judy .

Both parents drunk . Special thanks to Dr. Palmer and his strings without whom this could have been a
halfway decent album .

Aw come on! This was the one album where Jansch tried to escape the clutches of the purists, and connect to the swirling currents of '60s pop music. All I can say is that as a hip teenager in the '60s, this album compared favourably to Sunshine Superman, Notorious Byrd Brothers and even Blonde on Blonde as a revolutionary attempt to infuse "serious" (actually at the time, verging on the pompous) music with a pop sensibility. And ignore all the nerdy musos who revere Jansch as an accoustic guitar player (whisper it softly, but he wasn't/isn't that good anyway, nowhere near as good and innovative as Nick Drake) - the first album was a cracker, but for the quality of songwriting. The rest were all much of a muchness. But this one...

Having played my vinyl copy to death, I'm going to buy the incredibly cheap CD before any of the rest of you get your hands on it.
