If only I could make a thumbpick sound that good. A man of seemingly few words, who, unlike so many people whose music I enjoy, I actually wanted to meet, to see play up close and now that isn't going to happen. I suggest you all go and check his youtube clips, then follow it with some of Davy Graham's and John Martyn's. I'm sure the blogs are awash with tracks, but here are my humble submissions to encourage you to check his albums out:
Listen: Bert Jansch - Needle of Death
Listen: Bert Jansch - Courting Blues
Buy it - better yet get the twofer.
