Description

One of Bert Jansch’s later recordings, Crimson Moon is some of his finest work and sees the musician at the top of his game, with appearances from Johnny Marr, Bernard Butler and many more.

Originally released in 2000, there is a brooding resonance in Crimson Moon centred around his accomplished guitar style that brings his contemplative songwriting to the fore. Traditional ballads have touches of jazz and blues adorned by contributions from guitarists Johnny Marr, Bernard Butler and Johnny “Guitar” Hodge along with guest vocals from Bert’s wife Loren Auerbach ('My Donald').

+ Red vinyl

The addition of electric guitar subtly compliments Bert’s percussive fingerpicking bringing new depth to his compositions. Title track Crimson Moon is a take on traditional song Omie Wise and was written about his wife Loren, Caledonia conjures pastoral images of Scotland alongside covers of The Incredible String Band’s 'October Song', Guy Mitchell’s 'Singing The Blues' and Owen Hand’s 'My Donald'. Otherworldly tale 'Neptune’s Daughter' sees a mermaid-like creature recount the death of her relatives from a poison in the sea. Passionate about nature, the song carries an underlying ecological message.

Released in his 60s, Crimson Moon proves Bert Jansch to still be an innovator and a unique talent.

Drift Recommends


Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
