Reviews

When John Martyn performed at the Camden Palace in 1984 as part of the Live From London series, he was already considered a great a musician's musician capable of playing soul-searching guitar and a hugely talented singer-songwriter. Accompanied by Foss Paterson (keyboards), Jeff Allen (drums) and Danny Cummings (percussion) this 60 minute concert goes to highlight the remarkable skills of a man who left us all too soon. Tracks include Root Love, Sapphire and Sweet Little Mystery. By most musician's standards, Martyn was somewhat of a late starter, not learning the guitar until he was 15 but a mere two years later he was playing in local folk clubs and became a key figure in the British folk scene. With his growing reputation, Martyn moved to London where he continued to tour the club scene, finally landing a recording contract with Island Records in 1967. His debut album London Conversation was released the following year and featured folk orientated tracks, many written by Martyn himself. The Tumbler, his second album, gave fans a taste of what was to come as Martyn began to move away from his folk roots towards a more jazz-based sound. His next two albums (Stormbringer! and The Road To Ruin both released in 1970) were collaborations with his then wife Beverley Kutner but his record company felt Martyn would be more effectively marketed as a solo artist. The release of Solid Air in 1973 was a defining moment in Martyn's career, bringing huge commercial success and introducing audiences to his new vocal style a laidback, slurred resonance that proved popular. By the end of the 70s, Martyn had released three more albums with varied reception - Inside Out, Sunday's Child and One World, the latter being inspired by time he spent in Jamaica with reggae legend Lee Scratch Perry.
