1000 pressed. Classic Black vinyl, DL card. When The Circus Comes To Town receives it’s long overdue first vinyl pressing, featuring new artwork.

From 1995, the 19th studio album from the revered legend of the British folk community, saw Bert Jansch in a purple patch surrounded by the umpteenth folk revival and new generations “discovering” his virtuoso playing. Featuring 15 self-penned originals and bringing both sax and slide guitar into the mix on occasion, ‘When The Circus Comes To Town’ finds Jansch in fine voice as well as with swift fingers which feature on a brace of standout solo acoustic numbers.
