5.0 out of 5 stars Bert still has it! On The Edge of a Dream, 4 Feb 2003
This review is from: Edge Of A Dream (Audio CD)
Bert Jansch is one of the most influential figures to emerge on the scene over the past Forty years.
This album proves he is still a powerful figure who composes and performs music that has a relevance and resonance today.
Bert performs with friends and family and there are no disappointments here.
"All That Remains" is an evocative sensitively performed number. Hope Sandoval sings, Bert and Colm O'Ciosoig accompany in an atmospheric but restrained performance. The traditional, "I cannot Keep From Crying" confirms that with hindsight and the passage of time we appreciate the irrevocable change certain courses of action can have on life.
Dave Swarbrick is here on "Sweet Death" and "Gypsy Dave". Ralph McTell appears complete with "harp" on "Bright Sunny Morning"
Bernard Butler, Johnny Guitar Hodge and Paul Wassif provide some electric, Spanish and Slide guitar-all good stuff. Adam Jansch and Loren Jansch make convincing and enjoyable appearances and Makoto Sakamoto continues the good work on drums and percussion that he started on Berts' Crimson Moon album.
Don't miss this album, it is a treat. it will lead you down the path to discover more Jansch. It is a fascinating route to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Accessible for non folkies, 9 Oct 2011
Arthur Dooley (N Wales) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Edge Of A Dream (Audio CD)
I write this a few days after Bert's untimely death at 67 from cancer. Like most artists who are taken prematurely from us,there is generally an upswelling in interest from people who are not devotees but simply curious. To them I would say,this is the perfect Bert Jansch album to 'get into Bert'. It's a lovely fusion of folk and blues with that crystal clear guitar picking from the maestro himself. With contributions from fellow musicians and singers,the tracks herein are far from being traditional finger in your ear dirges that a lot of people think folk music is. With crisp drums and electric and acoustic guitar accompaning Bert's unique melancholic vocals,the album just flows along as smoothly as a mountain stream. A fine,fine work by a brilliant artist.
