The album features nine songs composed by Jansch, one by Alex Campbell ("So Long (Been on the Road So Long)"), and the traditional "900 Miles". For this last Jansch accompanies himself on the banjo rather than the steel-string acoustic guitar which he uses elsewhere. "A Man I'd Rather Be" features lead vocals by Roy Harper. "My Lover" also has Harper playing some additional guitar, while John Renbourn is playing the lead acoustic guitar part. "Lucky Thirteen" is a guitar duet with Renbourn, based on a song written by the latter and apparently recorded during the Bert and John session. Finally, "Tinkers Blues" and "The Wheel" are guitar instrumentals composed and performed by Jansch.
