NPR Premieres Unreleased Recording by Bert Jansch & Johnny Marr

While compiling the disc of extras for our ‘Living In The Shadows Part II‘ collection, it was with some excitement that we happened upon a tape labelled ‘Marr’s Medley’. This tape, plucked from Bert Jansch’s personal archive, contained the sort of thing that fans of music – particularly those such as ourselves – dream of, an unheard session between Jansch and Marr. Recorded at Bert’s home around the time of ‘Crimson Moon’, this session has a jam-like quality about it, and the two men are clearly having fun when riffing on this version of ‘It Don’t Bother Me’.
