Very pleased to hear that Earth Recordings are re-issuing one of my favourite Bert Jansch albums (and didn’t I plead for someone to do that just a few weeks ago…?) in February next year:

And they’ve also recently re-issued Jansch’s Moonshine on picture disc (the picture being a fairly horrible jolly Albion, folk-music-overtaken-by-CAMRA style of country pub scene; not one for the living room walls). Not my favourite album of his, but does feature a spirited version of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, which avoids turning into a dirge, unlike many interpretations of that song.
