Dazzling Stranger: The Bert Jansch Anthology is a compilation album by Scottish folk musician Bert Jansch released in August 2000. It is the first Bert Jansch compilation featuring material recorded for and owned by more than one label. Sanctuary / Castle licensed from several rightsholders to make this the most definitive Jansch compilation available.

Tracks are drawn from eighteen of the twenty-one Jansch albums up to Crimson Moon (2000) plus three Pentangle tracks and two from the Loren Auerbach album Playing The Game (1985), including the Jansch song "Is It Real?" which was unavailable in its original form due to problems locating the rightsholders to Heartbreak (1982). The two other Jansch albums not sampled were Leather Launderette (1989) and the classic Avocet (1979), the ownership of which was in question at the time of compiling.[1]
