Living in the Shadows boxset including unreleased tracks

27 January 2017

boxset features Bert's three 1990s albums plus a disc of unreleased material including tracks with John Renbourn

Signifying a return to form that heralded one of the most prolific periods of his life, this special collection features Jansch’s three studio albums of the 1990s: The Ornament Tree, When The Circus Comes To Town and Toy Balloon plus an extra disc of demos, alternate versions and never-before heard tracks, transferred from Jansch’s personal tapes. Chosen specifically for their contrast to the studio versions, these tracks are often more stripped-down or without the embellishment typical of the era. Mostly recorded at Bert’s home studio, this unheard and unreleased collection, transferred from Bert’s own DAT tapes, has an intimate quality that is incredibly moving.
