Again many thanks to BigDee for another great job of mastering one of my recordings.

This was a tribute to the late and very great Bert Jansch. It was performed in front of several backdrops of Bert. It was very soon obvious that most of the audience were there for Robert Plant and Band. That having been said the reverential silence for artists like the great Archie Fisher was wonderful. His set was very quiet but you could have heard a pin drop. This show was originally planned as a one night affair but this show sold out so quickly that another was hastily scheduled for the larger venue (also seated) of the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall the following night. This meant an extention of the Festival- such was the popularity.

In some ways it was a disjointed affair, basically artists coming on separately and doing 2-3 songs. Sometimes a chat about Bert and then the next artist. Most artists did mainly Bert songs or songs that Bert covered.One got the feeling that Robert Plant and crew were in a different dressing room than the rest. The review in the Guardian Newspaper described the encore of "Strollin'" a cacophony! Plant and Sensational Space Shifters far louder than anyone else. Karine was great of course (no bias there!!)

A generally accurate review can be found below; They did miss a couple of songs out of the review. The start of the second set had a video of Neil Young and Jack White performing Bert's Needle of Death. This has been commercially released so has been omitted from this recording.
