Jesse Winchester: Anthology/ Jesse Winchester
This compilation/ rerelease by Castle Music is a double CD where the first disc consists of various album tracks released by Bearsville Records between 1972 and 1981, and the second disc has the complete Jesse Winchester debut album produced by Robbie Robertson. The album has a sticker that reads "The Bearsville Collection - Remastered With New Liner Notes". The liner notes are by Colin Escott.
In a way this double CD comes as a fulfillment of what Elvis Costello wrote in the liner notes for his album Kojak Variety (1995) which featured a cover of Winchester´s "Payday":
"Jesse Winchester´s 'Payday´ is the most recent song on this record. It comes from his 1970 debut album which contains many very beautiful ballads and one terrifying song called ´Black Dog.´ I still cannot listen to it in the dark. That album was produced by Robbie Robertson and features other members of The Band. If you see it snap it up! There is a very fine Jesse Winchester anthology but it would only be perfect if it contained all the tracks from that first record."
