L.A. Turnaround (RSD18)
First of a diptych of albums recorded in and influenced by Bert’s time in America.
As the title suggests, this album was something of a contrast to Jansch’s usual style - taking in swathes of Nashville-infused pedal steel to sparkling effect. Produced in part by the Monkees’ Mike Nesmith, whose guidance is much in evidence on this perfectly measured slice of British country-rock. Includes 4 additional non-album tracks as a CD extra. Limited edition blue vinyl. 1000 copies worldwide. Tracklisting 1. Fresh as a Sweet Sunday Morning 2. Chambertin 3. One for Jo 4. Travelling Man 5. Open Up the Watergate (Let the Sunshine In) 6.
