Bert Jansch is the debut album by Scottish folk musician Bert Jansch. Transatlantic released the album, which went on to sell 150,000 copies. The album was included in Robert Dimery's 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. The record includes Jansch's best-known tune - "Needle of Death", which was inspired by the death of his friend, folk singer Buck Polly.
During Bert Jansch's five-decade career, he released records where nothing seemed out of place. The folk singer, who died in 2011, often wrestled with the torment of young lovers and restless souls in his lyrics, but those worries came in near-perfect packages, in which the blues and intercontinental folk, jazz, and pop moved together with riverine fluidity. When a New Weird America contingent led by Devendra Banhart and Noah Georgeson worked to revive his career with the The Black Swan LP in 2006, it made sense; he and his band, Pentangle, were godheads for pockets of that scene. Live at the 12 Bar-a 16-song set from 1996 that Earth Recordings has resurrected for the launch of an extensive series of Jansch reissues-is not some unbridled onstage affair. An intimate solo show, Jansch plays without much pause for about an hour, laughing at himself when he doesn’t leave the stage ahead of the encore.

Hence, this live recording is a fantastic representation of his outstanding ability. Few others can step on a stage and perform a set as compelling as the one documented here, and he thrives in the live context. Old staples are given the familiar Jansch treatment, which involves not so much playing the songs as rewriting them on the spot, one could say. On that particular day, Jackson C. Frank's "Blues Run the Game" and the traditional ballad "Curragh of Kildare" were given particularly haunting treatments by the Scotsman's baritone. Jansch originals stand taller.
