A Man I'd Rather Be - Bert's '60s and early '70s solo work boxed by Earth

13 November 2017

Bert's first 8 solo records (including his album with John Renbourn) get the lush Earth Recordings treatment over 2 beautifully compiled box sets released early 2018

Earth Recordings who have created such sumptuous boxsets of Bert's '90s and 2000s catalogue, are now presenting his earliest work including the seminal albums for Transatlantic, over 2 lovingly curated 4-disc box sets.

Part I, to be released 26 January 2018, comprises Bert’s seminal 1960s output (alongside his only album as a duet with Pentangle bandmate John Renbourn), covering an era that forged creative paths for everyone from Neil Young to Johnny Marr. New listening notes from Bill Leader, as well as unseen photographs from Brian Shuel complete this special collection.

Part II, to be released 24 February 2018, comprises his last three albums for Transatlantic and Moonshine for Reprise, overlapping his time with the peerless and prolific Pentangle.

Both sets are available on vinyl and CD and are available for pre-order now.
