From The Outside
Album available as:-
the end of 1985 a solo album called From the Outside appeared, but only
just. Cobbled together from sessions in Denmark and London, with unsympathetic
engineers and featuring only guitar and voice, it was Bert's rawest and
most cathartic work since Bert Jansch twenty years earlier. It slipped
out on the tiny Belgian label Konexion in a pressing of only five hundred
copies, and a greater contrast to Heartbreak would be hard to imagine.
But this time it really was heartbreak. Remixing the album for CD some
years later, with a few losses and additions in tracks, Bert added revealing
notes on the material. A 'new' track from the original sessions, 'Blackbird
In The Morning', a serene love song redolent of James Taylor, was restored
to the album and lends a degree of balance. For this was an album adrift
on a sea of melancholy, clearly the work of an artist weighed down by
the woes of the world."
