“Blues Run The Game” – Bert Jansch – One-Take

Scottish folk hero Bert Jansch displays his evocative acoustic guitar skills and vocal grace on Jackson C. Frank`s “Blues Run The Game” for Dusty Wright’s One-Takes. One-Takes are a series of songs by artists you know, should know, or will know very soon. Here’s my interview with Bert: youtu.be

This song was recorded in February 1967, using TWO 4-track machines. After recording tracks onto the first tape machine, the recording was then mixed onto the 2nd tape machine. This technique was called “bouncing”. It referred to the use of a second tape machine to combine tracks from the first machine. This freed up one or more tracks to add additional instruments. In those days, this technique was used to overcome a limitation of 4-track recording equipment. Nowadays, modern multi-track and digital recording studios make such efforts unnecessary. .************************************* 2nd Tape Machine : This “bounce” tape is what we are hearing.

  1. Thanks for the upload. I’m using the video to learn how to play this song. I’m twenty years old, and one my life dreams is to learn all of Jansch’s songs (and songs he’s covered). I’m not a performer, but when friends and family hear me play, it is his songs that get the raised eyebrows.

  2. grateful for his contribution..so happy to have sat beside him and chatted for a short while in Katomba NSW Au. I took my two children to hear him play there maybe 15 years ago…
    we always have your Music bert thanks God Bless ye…

  3. search nic chapman lucy, she rises. one of our own great modern english folk guitarists from the tradition of jansch, drake, john Martyn and davy graham.

  4. Thank you so much, Gwyn. It was a very magical moment. You may enjoy my chat with Jim Marshall, too. He was a real character and captured some amazing artists with his camera.

  5. Dusty – I’ve watched the entire interview you did with Bert any number of times. As a real BJ fan, I really enjoyed it – it was great, thanks very much. As someone has already said, Bert was sheer class and integrity.
    Gwyn – all the way from Wales….

  6. i was wondering the same thing myself. i dont think so. he just works some great melodies around that Bb chord.

  7. This is so beautiful it touches my soul – Bert’s music has given so much joy for so many years. RIP Bert.

  8. Because he was on tour with Neil when I conducted this interview and I posted these two vids I wanted Neil fans to discover him, if they missed their tour. And Neil was a fan!

  9. Best voice in rock / pop…he can pull off everthing from gutsy rock vocals to tender love songs.

  10. I like the WHOOP too! Sounds like Paul is having FUN =) That’s what is missing from today’s music…everyone is whining. What happened to FUN?

  11. Thanks for posting…amazing deconstruction….it’s amazing what great music was created with only 4 tracks (+ some bouncing)…

  12. I use to do cassette recordings then play them back while doing a stereo master reel to reel tape. I would have up to sometimes 8 cassettes playing

  13. music today isnt music people doesn’t put work into it and work all night to get the song they just pay people to write songs for them and most of these song are played by computer not real instrumentals

  14. It’s amazing that they did that. They literally had to mix 4 tracks, to a single track, then mix the rest of the tracks according to that single (4 track) track. There was a lot of limitations and commitments in their mixing.
    As you said it’s laughable by todays standards, but at the same time, it’s laughable how easy and luxurious it can be now.

  15. This is a 4 track master. It is laughable by today’s standards. The Beatles were able to make it sound like more than that because they put the guitar solos and orchestral portions in the same tracks with other parts of the arrangement. The made the most use that they could make of the 4 tracks they had to work with. They also double-tracked their vocals, which gave a fuller sound to them.

  16. How you got these tracks blows me away! I need more!!!
    Would love to hear She’s leaving home. This is a new lease on life for REAL Beatles fans that work in the studio!
    TOP NOTCH!

  17. Today’s wonder technology makes for shitty music.
    look what The Beach Boys, The Beatles (George Martin), Phil Spector, and ABBA (Micheal B. Tretow) did with relative primitive equipment. the more technology increases, the lousier the music (generally) gets.

  18. Yeah the Beatles have that effect on me always have , keep it up man you will come out on top, good luck !!
