***NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL!!! Drag City is “chuffed” to reissue the three albums BERT JANSCH recorded for the famous Charisma Label in the 1970s: L.A. Turnaround, Santa Barbara Honeymoon and A Rare Conundrum, all of which have been out of print for decades and are among the most sought-after Jansch albums among fans and collectors. Bert Jansch was signed to Charisma by label boss Tony Stratton Smith in 1973, the year that PENTANGLE decided to go their separate ways. L.A. Turnaround appeared in September 1974 to great acclaim, hailed in the press as “not far off from being the perfect album.” It was produced by former MONKEE MIKE NESMITH at Stratton Smith’s house in the country in Crowbridge, Sussex, and in Los Angeles, and features not only Nesmith on guitar but also pedal steel guitar maestro RED RHODES. Rhodes’ presence gives the album a unique sound enhancing Bert Jansch’s own songwriting and performance skills with his haunting steel guitar. Other tracks on the album were completed by a group including KLAUS VOORMAN on bass and, on certain songs, slide guitarist JESSE ED DAVIS and fiddle player BYRON BERLINE, giving this album an authentic L.A. ‘70s vibe, despite its UK origins.
