4LP casebound book/back set, comes with high/quality download card. 4CD is a book/back set. Signifying a return to form that heralded one of the most prolific periods of his life, this special collection features some of Jansch's finest work. Living In the Shadows includes an extra disc of demos, alternate versions and never/before heard tracks, transferred from Jansch's personal tapes, alongside the three studio albums of the 1990s> -The Ornament Tree-, -When The Circus Comes To Town- and -Toy Balloon-. Both studio albums and DAT transfers, remastered by Brian Pyle. This trio of works represents quite different facets of Jansch's talent< where ircus' is a bluesy, late/night sounding party, rnament' is altogether more subdued, draw/ing on Maggie Boyle's bodhran, flute and whistles to creative a sound that is nothing if not celtic. oy Balloon' falls somewhere in the middle, with that feel/ing of intimacy that is so Bert. Despite these apparent contrasts, the unifying element is of course, Jansch's guitar. There is an ease about these albums that suggests a musician that has found himself very at home-"just a simple soul", to quote the man himself. The real draw here for many Jansch fans will be disc four> unreleased tracks *including-let joy be unconfined!-one with John Ren/bourn(, as well as alternative takes of familiar songs from the '90s period. Cho/sen 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 unre/leased collection, transferred from Bert's own DAT tapes, has a intimate quality that is incredibly moving.
