Bert Jansch “Chambertin”

After the demise of Pentangle, Bert Jansch recorded the album L.A. Turnaround in Tony Stratton-Smith’s home in Crowborough, Sussex and in a studio in California. It was produced by Michael Nesmith (of the Monkees)

Two of the tracks “Chambertin” and former bandmate John Renbourn’s “Lady Nothing” were recorded in Paris a year earlier. A short film was produced during the sessions in Sussex.

Other guest musicians include Klaus Voorman (bass guitar), Red Rhodes (pedal steel guitar), Byron Berline (fiddle, mandolin) and Jesse Ed Davis (guitar).
