John Martyn, Again

I don’t know what it is at the moment but I find myself listening to John Martyn a lot of an evening. Maybe it’s the time of year, there is something rather comforting in those slurred vocals when the nights are drawing in but it”s probably just the fact that the man was a brilliant songwriter/musician.

To illustrate the point I have posted an incredibly beautiful track which Martyn didn’t deem good enough to warrant inclusion on One World and which lesser talents would probably give their left bollock to have penned.

I defy you to say this isn’t lovely.
