With an output as far reaching as Bert Jansch’s, it’s small wonder that the occasional gem would be overlooked. ‘Moonshine’ – recorded in 1973 – is one such treasure. While the slightly more obvious (and indeed Pentangle-like) albums of 60s Bert are undisputedly wonderful, there is something about the gently brooding style of ‘Moonshine’ that really resonates. Joined by an all-star cast (Ralph McTell! Mary Hopkin! Tony Visconti!) Jansch’s eighth solo album is steeped in tradition, often giving way to a more baroque style of folk music.
The second of an extensive catalogue of Bert Jansch reissues that will pass through the Earth stable, this remastered version comes housed in a deluxe die cut sleeve made especially for this picture disc edition.
