Bert Jansch

Living In The Shadows Part 2: On The Edge Of A Dream

Earth Records

limited 4CD

Released: 28th Apr 2017


limited 4LP

Released: 28th Apr 2017


comprising Jansch’s three studio albums from the 2000s (Crimson Moon; Edge Of A Dream; The Black Swan), alongside an additional disc of demos & unreleased material, this is an essential collection for jansch-heads.

*** the 4LP book-back includes a high sound quality download card. *** Disc four, ‘The Setting Of The Sun’, takes in more demos & unreleased material, with guest appearances from Gordon Giltrap & Johnny Marr adding additional delight for fans old & new. These peeks into Jansch’s recording process are fascinating, with his home studio lending itself perfectly to any recording fancy he might arrive at. Like Part 1, this deluxe case-bound set exhibits the sublime attention to detail that has become Earth Recordings’ calling card. Liner notes come courtesy of colleague Bernard Butler & Bert’s son Adam, while a comprehensive listening guide (by esteemed journalist, Dave Henderson) is also included.
