Release Date:05/12/2017;Notes:Limited four vinyl LP set including digital download. Following on from Earth's definitive collection of Jansch's 1990s works, Living In The Shadows Part 2: On The Edge Of A Dream picks up from where it left off, bringing together Bert Jansch's final recordings, made between 2000 and 2006. This remarkable anthology documents some of Jansch's finest work, and a man at the top of his game, some forty years (!) after his first release. From the brooding resonance of Crimson Moon (where Jansch is joined by Johnny Marr, Bernard Butler and Johnny "Guitar" Hodge, as well as son Adam Jansch and Bert's wife Loren Jansch) to the intimacy of Edge Of A Dream (Bernard Butler, Hope Sandoval, Dave Swarbrick, Ralph McTell, Johnny "Guitar" Hodge, Paul Wassif, Adam Jansch and Loren Jansch) to the wondrous new folk / trad folk harmony of Black Swan (Beth Orton, Devendra Banhart, Kevin Barker, Helena Espvall, Paul Wassif), these seemingly very different albums all speak of one thing: Bert's natural talent for turning out extraordinary music, regardless of genre. Disc four, The Setting Of The Sun, takes in more demos and unreleased material, with guest appearances from Gordon Giltrap and Johnny Marr adding additional delight for fans old and new. These peeks into Jansch's recording process are nothing if not fascinating, with his home studio lending itself perfectly to any recording fancy he might arrive at. Like Part 1, this deluxe case-bound set exhibits the sublime attention to detail that has become Earth Recordings' calling card. Liner notes come courtesy of colleague Bernard Butler and Bert's son Adam, while a comprehensive listening guide (by esteemed journalist, Dave Henderson) is also included.;Track List:1. Caledonia;2.
