Bert Jansch - Black Birds of Brittany

Earth Recordings
More Info:

Originally released as part of a split single with Shirley Collins, 1979’s ‘Black Birds Of Brittany' was recorded - somewhat unsurprisingly - around the same time as Bert’s paean to ornithology, ‘Avocet’. Re-issued exclusively for Record Store Day 2016, and backed by the previously unreleased ‘Cuckoo’ these two tracks are a perfect companion to this beautifully orchestral, experimental album. Artwork again comes from UK illustrator Hannah Alice (also responsible for Avocet’s charming reinterpretation). Limited to 1000 copies worldwide. Track Listing: A1 Black Birds Of Brittany A2 Cuckoo
