Awesome footage of acoustic guitar virtuouso Bert Jansch accompanied by pedal steel player Red Rhodes recording the album L.A. Turnaround, produced by Mike Nesmith.
Wearing a fresh Fred Perry v-neck sweater, Papa Nez explains how this all came about: “We were having dinner and he said, ‘Why don’t you produce Bert Jansch?’ And I said, ‘Well, I don’t know.’ And then I said, ‘As long as we’re going to do it, we might as well do it in the garden—it’s a lovely garden.’ And he said, ‘That’s a great idea!’ And I said, ‘Well, as long as we’re going to do it in the garden, we might as well film it.'”
Remastered and reissued last year with bonus tracks, L.A. Turnaround is available on Amazon MP3 for only $6.99. Jansch just got done touring with Neil Young, and he’s back on the road with Neil’s wife Pegi opening for him.
