Thread Name: John Martyn-Has his style changed over the years?
Subject: RE: John Martyn
There was a very upbeat review of his latest album I read in the Daily Telegraph last weekend which picked his album as the cd of the week. Apparently - given his leg problem - it is remarkably positive and I will check it out soon.

First saw him in Leicester in the late 1970's playing with Danny Thompson. Very kindly shared his herbal cigarettes with the audience and great to hear.

There is a double Island Years cd which covers most of his work from Solid Air times forwards and is a good introduction to most of his stuff. If you are a member of York library they have a copy in their CD section (unlikely I realise!!) which is currently available - I returned it on Saturday.

Angeline - I don't wanna know about evil - Head and heart - Bless the Weather are among my favourites.

Coincidentally I was practising May You Never yesterday with the aim of playing it tonight.
