5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Alastair Dougall on 30 July 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Almost unbelievably recorded live on an ancient reel-to-reel by a Scottish teenage schoolboy called Frank Cola [crazy name, etc] between 1962-4, this wonderful 30-track CD chronicles the rise of the peerless Bert Jansch, before his groundbreaking Ist album. Throughout, Bert's playing is superb and he's in fine voice, too. Sound quality is a little uneven in places, as you'd expect, but that adds rather than detracts from the atmosphere -- you can sense the audience's rapt attention, aware, as everyone there must have been, that something very special, really a revolution in guitar playing, is unfolding before them. As a bonus, a booklet written by Jansch expert Colin Harper puts the recordings superbly in context. Anyone interested in UK/US folk music of any kind should investigate this.

Learning Experience 24 Jun. 2000
By Jack Selvia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album provides a unique insight into the gestation of genius. In thirty cuts Colin Harper illustrates for us both the roots and the embryonic forms of Jansch's unique blues style.
Many Jansch favorites are here, sprung, like Athena, full grown from their father's brow. But the young Jansch's conceptions are beyond his abilities as a performer.
Part of the pleasure of this album is in comparing these early performances to later ones. Jansch fans will admire the artist's committment to fleshing out brilliant ideas with brilliant performances.
But the best parts of this album are the cuts themselves. They don't appear to have been recorded for publication, so the feel is raw, the energy is real, and the listener can feel the uncontrived excitement of Jansch's self-discovery.

In the beginning... 14 Aug. 2000
By C. H Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I quite agree with the other reviewer's comments. There's an awful lot of raw creativity on display here, and for some the rawness may be a bit much (and of course the recording quality is quite poor besides). Nevertheless, this is required listening for any Jansch fan. We always hoped that something like this might turn up, now here it is! Imagine yourself as a fly on the wall in Bert's apartment in 1963, listening to him practice and work up pieces from scratch. Some rare insight into the early days of one of popular music's great creative geniuses.

Difficult to get beyond the poor recording quality 30 Dec. 2006
By Griffinia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Much as I wanted to love this set, and despite my appreciation for the historical importance to Jansch enthusiasts, the low quality of the recording makes it difficult for me to listen to this album. Still, its nice to have it out there. Now, when will the three remaining Charisma Jansch LPs ("Santa Barbara Honeymoon, LA Turnaround, A Rare Conundrum") finally get onto to CD?

Early Bert Jansch for the connoisseur 30 Aug. 2008
By Bo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Interesting hometape recording made long before Bert was known outside his circle of friends in Scotland. Surpricingly good recording quality make this legal bootleg essential listening to any Bert Janch fan. Highly recommended.
