Scottish singer-songwriter Bert Jansch recorded his first album in producer Bill Leader’s London flat with a borrowed guitar, sitting on the edge of the bed and singing into a portable tape recorder.

As author Richie Unterberger writes in the liner notes, “When Bert Jansch‘s self-titled debut LP was issued in April 1965, he was already a major figure on the British folk scene. His synthesis of traditional British folk with blues and a bit of jazz was at the vanguard of a new generation of UK folk performers, well-versed in past forms but unafraid to venture into new territory. His virtuosic guitar was complemented by a plaintive rough-hewn voice that didn’t just document the on-the-road experience, but lived it.”

“Bert Jansch” contains all original material, except a shattered cover of Davy Graham’s “Angie” that Jansch makes all his own. “Needle of Death,” one of the first folk songs to address the consequences of heroin use, yields to a restraint uncommon for Jansch, yet beautifully encapsulates the album’s tone of heartfelt conviction.
