Live at the 12 Bar on vinyl for the first time via Earth Recordings

03 June 2015

Live at the 12 Bar is the first release in Earth Recordings’ new extensive reissue series of Bert Jansch catalogue.

The album was recorded at the legendary London music venue and is a fitting tribute not only to Bert's virtuosity but to this renowned hub on Denmark Street for folk music and other genres. This "official bootleg", first released by Bert in 1995, captures an intimate gig that's richly brought to life by his spellbinding ability to hold a room. The warmth and reverent silence from fans reminds us of what it was like to attend his shows and the true legend that we have lost.

Two decades after its first release, Live At The 12 Bar is issued for the first time on vinyl from 7 August 2015 and is available for download now with limited edition screen-printed poster (while stocks last). This is the first release in Earth Recordings' new extensive reissue series of the Bert Jansch catalogue.
