Product description

Product Description

In celebration of the legendary guitarist Bert Jansch, the 20th Anniversary release of BAFTA nominated ACOUSTIC ROUTES was specially filmed on location in Edinburgh, London, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Oakland, ACOUSTIC ROUTES charts the story of one of world's most influential musicians Bert Jansch, with Billy Connolly at the helm and a stellar cast of folk and blues musicians, including Brownie McGhee, Davey Graham, Anne Briggs, Ralph McTell, Wizz Jones, Martin Carthy, John Renbourn, Hamish Imlach, Archie Fisher, Peter Kirtley, Jacqui McShee, Duck Baker, and Al Stewart. The set also includes the soundtrack to the film as well as a bonus documentary in WALK ON plus a lush book which contains copies of the original sheet music of all songs as well as handwritten lyrics. Among the many highlights are unique performances of Brownie and Bert playing together in Oakland, along with special collaborations with Anne Briggs, Martin Carthy, Albert Lee, Peter Kirtley and Jacqui McShee. The film also contains the only known surviving footage of Jackson C Frank, together with many previously unpublished archive stills. This unique documentary was shot in 1992 and as a tribute to Bert Jansch, it is to be released on DVD for the first time. Not to mention, the original soundtrack features 15 bonus never before released tracks.

Bert's gone and so have many of the places where he played and sang. But ACOUSTIC ROUTES takes you back there, with Bert's great performances, Billy Connolly's loving and witty introductions, and fine contributions from a galaxy of stars from Folk's heyday. The whole production is beautifully packaged and tremendous value. A great present - I was first given this and then bought it as a gift for a friend. So if you're looking for something special for an acoustic music fan, I humbly suggest you look no further.

Never had a chance to see Bert Jansch, so this is as close as it gets. Great footage and wonderful music all round. One slightly disturbing feature is the filming of the inside of Browny McGhee's mouth while he's singing outside his front door. Not quite sure why cameramen do these absurd and awkward-angle close-ups. But anyway, I digress, for anyone who looks Bert or acoustic guitar for that matter, it's a total gem.

Wonderful box set. Bert is amazing but Brownie McGee is something else. Anne Briggs / Jackson C Franke and the wonderful Wizz Jones (maybe) steals the show!!

Really good package of DVD/audio. There were several versions on Amazon, Ebay, and other sites, this was by far the best value.
