Bert Jansch Just A Simple Soul Limited 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
The first comprehensive Best Of collection spanning Jansch’s 5-decade-long career, compiled by Bernard Butler and the Bert Jansch estate

Presented chronologically, the collection begins by drawing from his prolific 1960s period, during which he released six albums between 1965 and 1969

This collection plucks tracks including the seminal song ‘Needle of Death’ (famously covered by Neil Young) and the achingly beautiful ‘Angie’

Includes the track ‘Black Water Side’, the foundations of which were taken by Led Zeppelin for their later release ‘Black Mountain Side’

Just A Simple Soul reminds us of Bert Jansch’s enduring legacy and his influence across the musical spectrum. As Bernard Butler eloquently puts it; “Bert lived and breathed the sound of the guitar and its endless possibilities for communication, storytelling, conversation, emotional dialogue. We have a life’s work here, and what a life Bert Jansch has given us.”

“But as for acoustic guitar, Bert Jansch is on the same level as Jimi [Hendrix]. That first record of his is epic.” – Neil Young
