First Time as a Stand-Alone Vinyl LP!

Bert Jansch's 20th studio album. Never released as a stand-alone vinyl. Featuring new artwork & limited-time full album download.

Toy Balloon from revered Scottish musician Bert Jansch includes Jackson C Frank's "Carnival," traditional song "She Moves Through the Fair" and "Just a Simple Soul." It features performances from Pick Withers (Dire Straits), Pee Wee Ellis and B.J. Cole.

A singular talent
-No Depression
The fact that Bert Jansch continues to produce superb records more than 30 years into his career is proof not only of his talent, but of his longevity, and Toy Balloon follows up on the excellent When the Circus Comes to Town to show that his touch - both as a writer and guitarist - remains sure....Toy Balloon shows that, not only can someone return to form, but continue from strength to strength.
