Once again this is a fine folk album. Unlike the debut album which had been written in a front room of a house, this album was recorded in a studio. This factor may have made Jansch more nervous than the more relaxed setting of his debut album but the end result is just as fabulous. This really is a great album with some fine songs and instrumentals. If there were any nerves during the recording Bert had his friend John Renbourn along with him on two tracks here. Renbourn plays lead acoustic guitar on lucky Thirteen, a guitar duet based on a song by Renbourn. Renbourn also helps out on My Lover which has a mystic easten feel to it. There are nine songs by Jansch. One is by Alex Campbell, so long been on the road so long. And there is a traditional song 900 miles. On that track the studio recording offers the advantage that Jansch accompanies himself on the banjo. There is a track called A man I'd rather be that features lead vocals by Roy Harper who also appears with renbourn on My Lover. There are also two instrumentals Tinkers blues and The Wheel.
The re mastered sound is excellent here and this CD version is good all round with a good booklet that has good photos. If you like John Renbourn early albums or you liked either albums by Davy Graham or the debut album by Bert Jansch then you will like this great blues, jazz folk acoustic album.
Fortunately Bert was to get a second wind by interpreting traditional songs, and through his role in Pentangle; but as a songwriter he had no more to say. Five stars for the first of these albums, three for the second.
It's worth pointing out that two tracks from the original IDBM have been omitted for reasons of space (and yet Anti-Apartheid made the cut!). At least they had more sense than to cut any of the blue album tracks.
