Rosemary Lane, released in June 1971, was Bert Jansch's seventh and final album for Transatlantic. Very highly rated by many fans, Rosemary Lane is as striking as his best albums of the '60s, delivering all the attributes listeners had come to expect of him by 1971: excellent acoustic guitar work, imaginative interpretations of traditional material and well-constructed originals in the same vein, and committed vocal performances. With its sparse arrangements and subdued tone, it's a low key affair but arguably his finest album of the '70s. Continuing the series of Bert Jansch's Transatlantic recordings, this album was remastered, using the original master tape, recorded in the village of Ticehurst, East Sussex, during between the summer of 1970 and early 1971. This is the first time this tape has been used since the album was released. The vinyl was mastered from the same tape, and is the best possible representation of the wonderful music that Bert Jansch recorded at these sessions.
