Live in Australia remastered

23 February 2017

remastered set from Melbourne in 2001 available on vinyl for the first time as well as CD and download

Recorded live at Continental Café, Melbourne, Australia in March 1998, this memorable recording saw Jansch debut two new (at the time) songs: "Downunder" and "My Donald", as well as "Little Max" which never had a studio outing (but features among the recently discovered home recordings in Earth’s 2017 Living In The Shadows collection).

There is a warmth about this recording which echoes that of Live at The 12 Bar, recorded three years before. It’s mostly just Bert and his guitar, with the welcome addition of intuitively placed flourishes of bass (Pete Howell) and percussion (Ian Clarke). This ambience is heightened by Brian Pyle’s sensitive remastering, bringing a real intimacy to this enduring collection of songs.

This first release on vinyl features 12 tracks and a download code for the complete set of 15 songs found on the CD release.
