The Bert Jansch tape

This was mistakenly attributed to Ralph McTell, and was a track on a 15ips compilation reel from Advision Studios.

Thank you to John Beresford who runs the Ralph McTell Fansite and kindly responded to my enquiry about this track. He recognised the title "Running From Home" and thinks it may actually be be Bert Jansch singing. John also tells me the two artists often used to perform this track together in concerts.

Also thanks to Tony Visconti who confirmed that although he was not not involved in the recording, this is in fact Bert Jansch singing.

Bert Jansch is credited with writing the song, and this version has a different structure from the published lyrics in that the order of verses is 1, 4, 5, 3, 6 and strings have been added to the track.
