From the Outside is the fifteenth album by Scottish folk musician Bert Jansch, released as a limited edition of 500 copies in Belgium in 1985. From The Outside was available in the UK as well, but the label is unknown.[2]

Colin Harper describes the album on his Bert Jansch biography, "Dazzling Stranger": "Towards the end of 1985 a solo album called From the Outside appeared, but only just. Cobbled together from sessions in Denmark and London, with unsympathetic engineers and featuring only guitar and voice, it was Bert's rawest and most cathartic work since Bert Jansch twenty years earlier. It slipped out on the tiny Belgian label Konexion in a pressing of only five hundred copies, and a greater contrast to [Bert's previous studio album] Heartbreak would be hard to imagine."[3]
