A superb creative fusion,
This review is from: Bert and John (Audio CD)
In 1966 two of England's best folk guitarists/singer-composers got together to collabrate on a joint project and the results were excellent. It led directly to the formation of the well-known folk group of the era, Pentangle. All of the tracks except two on this CD are short instrumentals; the longest is their version of the Charles Mingus jazz classic "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" at 3:54 (incidentally it is interesting to compare this version with Jeff Beck's). Most of the tracks were written by the pair, either jointly or singly and contain plenty of innovative melodies, themes, and guitar licks. The total running time is a meagre 26:33, but there is plenty of absorbing accoustic guitar music within it.

Actually, Bert Jansch was not English. He was a Scottish folk musician, born in Glasgow.
