3 Album Bundle (3 x Vinyl LP)

Source: Press release

3 LP Bundle includes:

‘Birthday Blues’, released in January 1969, was BertJansch’s sixth album for Transatlantic.· It’s no surprise that the album sounds like a modifiedversion of The Pentangle as Bert was a member of theclassic British folk / jazz / rock group at the time ofthis record’s release. Additionally Shel Talmy, whoworked with the group (as well as The Who and TheKinks), produced ‘Birthday Blues’. To complete thecircle, the record’s rhythm section was Pentangle’s -Danny Thompson on bass and Terry Cox on drums.· Jansch was the group’s finest musician, and can stillbe a compelling writer and performer on his own. Allof the cuts on this album are originals, showing theartist leaning a little more toward bluesy styles thanusual, though the mood is predominantly British folk.· Continuing the series of Bert Jansch’s Transatlanticrecordings this album was remastered using theoriginal master tape recorded at IBC Studios inLondon during November 1968. This is the first timethis tape has been used since the album was released.The vinyl was half-speed mastered from the sametape and is the best possible representation of thewonderful music that Bert Jansch recorded at thesesessions.

‘Nicola’, released in July 1967, was Bert Jansch’sfifth album for Transatlantic. At the time, criticsand fans were less than impressed by DavidPalmer’s florid string arrangements on some tracksbut time has been kind and the record stands asJansch’s prettiest album.· By the time the record was released the summerof love was upon us, with a backdrop of civilrights, the Vietnam war and revolution in the air.Bert’s marvellous playing, as evidenced on everyone of his recordings, was a perfect antidote tothe real world, creating its own place. Out of stepwith the fashionable recordings and productions ofthe day, (this was the year of ‘Sgt. Pepper’, thefirst Doors album, Jefferson Airplane’s ‘SurrealisticPillow’ and Love’s ‘Forever Changes’) ‘Nicola’ istimeless.· Continuing the series of Bert Jansch’s Transatlanticrecordings, this album was remastered using theoriginal 1967 master tape recorded at DeccaStudios and Sound Techniques in London duringthe Spring of 1967. This is the first time this tapehas been used since the album was released. Thevinyl was cut from the same tape and is the bestpossible representation of the wonderful musicthat Bert Jansch recorded at these sessions.

‘Rosemary Lane’, released in June 1971, was BertJansch’s seventh and final album for Transatlantic.· Very highly rated by many fans, ‘Rosemary Lane’ isas striking as his best albums of the 1960s,delivering all the attributes listeners had come toexpect of him by 1971 - excellent acoustic guitarwork, imaginative interpretations of traditionalmaterial and well-constructed originals in the samevein and committed vocal performances.· With its sparse arrangements and subdued toneit’s a low key affair but arguably his finest albumof the 1970s.· Continuing the series of Bert Jansch’s Transatlanticrecordings, this album was remastered using theoriginal master tape recorded in the village ofTicehurst, East Sussex between the summer of1970 and early 1971. This is the first time this tapehas been used since the album was released. Thevinyl was mastered from the same tape and is thebest possible representation of the wonderfulmusic that Bert Jansch recorded during thesesessions.
