56. Bert Jansch - Bert Jansch

Release Date: 1965
Label: Transatlantic

I listened to this album not knowing what to expect, except thinking it would probably be a bit like Nick Drake. Of course, whilst that is true to some extent, it does Jansch a disservice to suggest he's just a watered-down comparison to Drake. Vocally, Jansch is far from perfect and the lyrics aren't much to shout about, but his guitar playing (all acoustic) and instrumentals are lovely. Unforunately whilst I can hear the merits of the album, the songs generally did nothing for me.

Rating: 6/10
Favourite Track: Angie
