Jansch's guitar work is always sublime, but on his, his singing really shines. So passionate and so alive. Most artists would give their right arms to make this; Jansch barely released it. Astonishing.

Further reissues in 1993 and 2001, by Hypertension and Castle Music respectively, saw the album released with updated artwork and a different track listing. It wasn't until 2016 that From The Outside would again see reissue, this time by Earth Recordings.

From the Outside has never featured much in Jansch's work, given that its original 1985 appearance was on a tiny Belgian label. This version, which is radically different from the 1993 CD version, ditches two songs from the original vinyl and adds another from the sessions ("Blackbird in the Morning") that had previously been unreleased, along with two newer tracks, "River Running" and "High Emotion," while "I Sure Wanna Know" had been on the original vinyl, but not the first CD release

Recalling the elegant simplicity of Jansch's early works, 'From The Outside' sees Jansch return to the uncomplicated yet supremely effective sound of his eponymous debut. This is Bert laid bare – eschewing the more intricate arrangements of his surrounding works for the holy trinity of guitar, banjo and voice, perhaps reflective of his state of mind at the time. Stand-out tracks include ‘River Running’ and ‘Blackbird In The Morning’ which were both (amazingly) omitted from the original vinyl release.

One of Bert's rarest releases, this 1985 LP was originally issued as an edition of just 500 copies on the small Belgian label, Konexion. This issue unites the varied track listing of previous versions – both LP and CD, with many cuts appearing here on vinyl for the first time. Remastered from original tapes by Brian Pyle.

Music is excellent, only Bert and his guitar. Vinyl pressing could be better. Dynamic range is good but as coloured prints usually are this too presents small static issues.
