Entertainment Reviews:

Dirty Linen - 4-5/96, p.55
"...a blend of blues, early jazz, and English folk served up through a gruff, world-weary Glasgow voice, backed by the liquid guitar that has long made him one of the U.K.'s best acoustic instrumentalists..."

Product Description:

Personnel: Bert Jansch (vocals, guitar, piano); Christine Collister, Jamie Romer, Maggie Boyle (vocals); Mike Piggott (violin); Tony Hinnigan (strings); Mark Ramsden (soprano saxophone); Colin Gibson (bass guitar).
Released in 1995, well over 30 years after Glasgow-born acoustic guitarist Bert Jansch set the British folk and blues scene aflame with his skilled playing and expressive vocals, WHEN THE CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN shows that Jansch was arguably playing better than ever. Through numerous solo albums and a long partnership with fellow guitarist John Renbourn (which included several group albums as the Pentangle, with singer Jacqui McShee and bassist Danny Thompson), Jansch had added American country and jazz influences and a strong undercurrent of Indian and North African drones to his folk and blues-based music. All of these sounds intermingle throughout WHEN THE CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN, so that even a simple blues like "Honey, Don't You Understand" sounds more complex upon closer listening. A deeply satisfying album.
