Bert Jansch"Black Birds Of Brittany" / "Cuckoo"
DETAILSEvent: RECORD STORE DAY 2016
Release Date: 4/16/2016
Format: 7" Vinyl
Label: Earth Recordings
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release
This Record Store Day release is limited to 1000 copies worldwide. Originally released as part of a split single with Shirley Collins, 1979’s ‘Black Birds Of Brittany' was recorded - somewhat unsurprisingly - around the same time as Bert’s paean to ornithology, ‘Avocet’. Re-issued exclusively for Record Store Day 2016, and backed by the previously unreleased ‘Cuckoo’ these two tracks are a perfect companion to this beautifully orchestral, experimental album. Artwork again comes from UK illustrator Hannah Alice (also responsible for Avocet’s charming reinterpretation).
