Wet cold Sundays require warm nourishing music, so here’s a collaboration between legendary Scottish folk guitarist Bert Jansch (Pentangle) and American musician Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star, Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions), “All This Remains”:

“All This Remains” is from Jansch’s 2002 album “On The Edge of a Dream”, released the year after Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions “Bavarian Fruit Bread” which he contributed to. “Bavarian Fruit Bread” was released on Rough Trade Records in 2001. It’s an essential album, but long out of print, with the LP version selling for hundreds of dollars now, and even the CD edition of the album and two related CD EPs “At The Doorway Again” (2000) and “Suzanne” (2002) are hard to find.

As Jansch explains in the sleeve notes: “I played on a couple of tracks on Hope’s album “Bavarian Fruit Bread”, and loved the imagery she evokes – particularly American, but shrouded in mystery. It was suggested we do some writing together, a collaboration, and here it is: “All This Remains.”

As well as Jansch’s acoustic guitar and Sandoval’s vocal, “All This Remains” features subtle percussion from her Warm Inventions collaborator Colm O’Ciosoig (My Bloody Valentine) and Jansch’s son on Adam on bass.
