Bert Jansch – Young Man Blues: Live in Glasgow
The earliest live recordings yet discovered of Bert Jansch, a hero of British folk, were originally released on CD by Ace Records in 1998, 30 tracks of Bert originals, blues and folk covers recorded between 1962 and 1964 by schoolboy Frank Coia.
Now on vinyl (double LP) for the very first time, these tracks are an important document of early live appearances by a mercurial talent, and Stamford Audio has launched a very special label to enable the songs to be heard on the beautiful vinyl format.
This is the first release on the Stamford Audio Heritage label, aiming to represent recordings of historical significance on vinyl; it will be strictly limited to 1000 hand-numbered copies and will not be repressed.
