I love much of the late John Martyn's work, but this album has always had a special place in my collection. Firstly, it's an album of covers - something that Martyn rarely did. Secondly, it's mainly blues and the performances are raw, emotional and telling. John Giblin on bass weaves his magic throughout, but it is Martyn's weary yet strong voice that holds the attention. 'Strange Fruit', already a powerful song, becomes that bit more significant under Martyn's delivery. There is much to enjoy here, but the killer song for me is 'Glory Box' a wonderful song, performed with passion and heart (and it has a brilliant guitar solo). With this song, Giblin and Martyn deliver a sublime performance. This is a special album - beg, borrow or steal a copy - it's a classic and very highly recommended!
