BERT JANSCH - BLACK SWAN (SUPER LTD. ED. 'RECORD STORE DAY' SILVER VINYL)
SUPER LTD. ED. 'RECORD STORE DAY' SILVER VINYL
"Originally released in 2006, The Black Swan was Jansch’s last studio album bookending his tremendous contribution to music. An important release that sees Jansch’s revered style boosted by musical admirers Beth Orton, Devendra Banhart, Otto Hauser, Helena Espvall and Noah Georgeson. Featuring sentimental ode ‘High Days’, beautiful title track, instrumental ‘Hey Pretty Girl’ and the country spirited ‘Texas Cowboy Blues’. Beth Orton accompanies with her mesmeric vocals on ‘When The Sun Comes Up’, traditional folk song of withered glory ‘Katie Cruel’ that has been brilliantly rearranged and features Devendra Banhart. Jansch’s extraordinary perceptive lyricism and exceptional songwriting makes The Black Swana vital record in his canon."
