An excellent album,
This review is from: Bert Jansch (Audio CD)
Now in his 60s, the excellent Bert Jansch has had an impressive and extensive career, having won such awards as the lifetime achievment award at the 2001 BBC Folk Awards. And this is where it started. This is his debut album and one of my favourites. There are many great tracks on 'Bert Jansch' and listening to it, it is no surprise that it was heavily responsible for the elevation of his career and the beginning of his success. The tracks are tuneful, with a fluency throughout the album which is more than can be said for some of his later albums (though he has done about 25). As a previous reviewer has already said, there is a lot of his most famous tracks on this album and his influence on people like Neil Young, Jimmy page and various artists is plain to see. If you're interested in getting into folk music and Bert Jansch, or you're already an experienced folk listener, this is an ideal album to buy.
