3 stars If an album could be described as suffering the dreaded 'sophomore blues' its this follow up album to Bert Jansch's legendary debut. Sporting better production values but not better material, It Don't Bother Me seems a rushed affair and probably was at the time it was recorded and released. After all, who knew that Jansch's eponymous debut would be so popular in the British folk circles of the mid 1960s. Songs that stand out on It Don't Bother Me are 'Anti Apartheid', 'Harvest Your Thoughts Of Love' and the album's dark and moody title track. John Renbourn guests on the wonderful instrumental 'Lucky Thirteen' while Jansch does a solo on the cyclical sounding instrumental titled 'The Wheel'.

It Don't Bother Me is by no means a bad album, it just doesn't improve on Jansch's debut. That would come pass on Jansch's third solo offering coming up quickly titled Jack Orion and, off course, with the debut album of the Pentangle that followed close behind. 3 stars.
