This is one of those cases where record companies vandalise an artist's work. This CD has two albums on it - and the tracks are mixed up. One of the albums is the early, gritty, bluesy Jansch at his best. The other is a ghastly collection of what must be all of Bert's worst tracks with a heavy, slushy orchestral backing. It would have been best to leave the rubbish in the vault but if they had to put the two together they could have kept the tracks in order so you could enjoy the good stuff.
Even though there are diamonds in the form of a couple of Anne Briggs songs and a bunch of quality Jansch blues tracks I can't bear to put this CD in the machine.
