Just listened to The Ornament Tree and When The Circus Comes To Town. Is there a more brilliant player? Name your favorites. The rest of you suck a lemon.

Go on and listen to Pentangle then.

Jansch AND John Renbourn.

I can't disagree with that but sometimes I prefer Bert on his own.

I like Rosemary Lane very much, and the first two.
"Joint Control" by John Renbourn and Whizz Jones is excellent if you can find it.

Bert's "Needle of Death" is a stunner and my personal fave.

Les, that's J-ansch not Y-ansch.

I adore Bert - as you say , what a player.

This is a fine album:

Live at the 12 Bar

One of the finest acoustic players ever. Not a note perfect player like Tommy Emmanuel, but the way he attacked the strings was so powerful. His playing on those first few albums up to Rosemary Lane is a masterclass. 'Avocet' and 'LA Turnaround' are unmissable albums too. He lost his way a bit in the 80's due to his alcoholism catching up on him a bit, but the final few years were really productive including the anniversary tour i saw with Pentangle. His last album 'The Black Swan' was one of his best so he went out on a high. I am glad he saw that acclaim before he passed.
