Basho and Jansch Bootlegs

Sorry for not writing too much lately. Things have been rather busy lately.
Nevertheless, since Small Town Romance has a promise to its consumers, I thought it’ll be nice to share with you the wonderful three bootlegs I’m listening to recently.

Steffen Basho-Junghans, a brilliant musician and the ‘son’ of¬†legendary¬†guitarist Robbie Basho, is doing an amazing job with keeping the history of the late Basho, accesible to the public, through his own website.
Recently, a fan of Robbie Basho contacted Steffen Basho-Junghans and offered him two audio recordings of live shows from 1978 and 1982. This is simply amazing find.
These recordings are a true must haves for fans of Basho, and they are available for a free download here.

Also, the wonderful Delta-Slider blog had posted two weeks ago a rare Bert Jansch bootleg from 1979. This is past his wonderful Avocet album and just before the eighties arrived and Bert sank into alcoholism. Fans of Jansch – again, this is a must have. Get it here.

How’s that for a comeback?
