Avocet Revisited

Bert Jansch

11th August 2017 - EP - EARTH022

£8.99£16.00

Avocet Revisited‘ is a four track EP, commissioned by Earth recordings as a companion piece to Bert Jansch’s 1979 avian-themed masterstroke ‘Avocet’. Again drawing inspiration from the resplendence of birds native to British waters (Bert himself was a keen ornithologist), Earth invited this quartet of artists to each choose a species that particularly speaks to them, and base a track around it. The results have been universally graceful, evocative, and majestic – much like the creatures themselves.

Available on 45rpm vinyl EP and CD.
