5.0 out of 5 stars
Folk genius!, 26 Sept. 2006
Not only does this album remind me of what an amazing guitarist Bert is, but his song writing too is the best it's ever been. This album is mesmerising, beautiful and just about perfect.
The new talent Bert has worked with (Beth Orton, Devendra Banhart - to name but a few) work perfectly on this beautifully engaging record. The Black Swan is a perfect addition to the Jansch catalogue for those faithful followers and a great introduction to the new folk fans alike.
