Thread Name: John Martyn-Has his style changed over the years?
Subject: RE: John Martyn
Can't see it myself, I find the guy sings in an over mannered fashion, and in so doing sounds contrived, sometimes the next line is so long coming I think he's forgotten the words, and when they do come, I wish he had forgotten them. I remember him when he arrived in London all those years ago, after running away from Scotland to seek fame and fortune, and change his name. Still, it worked for Ewan McColl.
