Santa Barbara Honeymoon

Album available as:-

Released in October 1975 Santa Barbara Honeymoon received mixes reviews by the critics. Some said it was simply not Bert Jansch, while others were in sheer astonishment. Bert says "Some of the songs are among the best I have written. I still stand by them" 'Lost And Gone', an oil exploration and the 'Shetland Isles' ecology, remains a work of rare power. Apparently a producer by the name of Danny Royce Lane was pulled in to give the album a commercial feel. Whether or not this was a good thing at the time, no one will know. The album was dedicated to a TV producer Tisha Fine who Bert was seeing at the time. After a short time Bert was back in the UK living in Putney by himself.
