Bert Jansch & John Renbourn

Excerpts of reviews from Bert Jansch's Lucky Thirteen (as featured in the liner notes to this album):

"Bert Jansch is, in all probability, the best contemporary writer of folk songs in the English language. In a word, he is great; but he is more than that.... He has an uncanny sensitivity for the important things... So wonderful that one is tempted to go on and on to capture, to describe the beauty that is there."
--Bob Jones, Broadside (Cambridge)

"From Scotland comes a new folk talent who is a superb guitarist and songwriter. Lucky Thirteen will win this tousle-haired folk artist a large following."

Those reviews are pretty accurate, I seriously doubt that you will be disappointed by this.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, Bert Jansch & John Renbourn.
