Format: Audio CD
This is my favourite JM album. He manages to makes a very accessible collection of songs without ever going down the "commercial pop road". Every song hits its own target and there is an abundance of nostalgia, love, hope and gentle reflection within the album. It starts bombastically with "Live on love" great tune with a theme that love can conquer all..."look at the girl" is the album highlight with beautiful reminder of how children grow up so fast. "Income town" is a live number against a loud and appreciative background...check out the brilliant guitar solo!...the album continues like that and finishes, appropriately, with a cover of "Patterns in the rain". As all the songs are consistently good it receives a 5 star rating...

I saw John perform many of the tracks from this album in Cambridge and it was a great experience. From the louch delivery of 'the River' to the uptempo and racous 'Income Town' it touches all the bases. We also get great versions of 'Deny This Love' and 'Patterns in The Rain'. After Solid Air this is my favourite by John , may he Rest in Peace. An underatted classic.

This album contains a couple of John's very best songs in Send me one line, and The Moment. There are also some very good songs to back them up. Not for you if you buy into the commonly held misbelief that John's last great album was Solid Air(only contains three at the most of his best songs in my opinion) but well worth exploring if you are more open minded.

Holds the most special of memories.... 8 Feb. 2002
By Damien Boyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Certain albums make your stomach tingle with warm nostalgia. This is one where I can almost remember every detail of that first listening period. It was great because I suddenly knew about a special musical talent. The songs on the album all seem to seamlessly merge into each other and there is a certain romance associated with them. Most touching is "Look at the girl", a tribute, I assume , to his (?) daughter (the deep affection in her youth, the dismay at her change as a teenager). "The river" brings back memories of the Springsteen epic. "income town" (live) suggests hard days making a pittance. "Upo" is indescribably beautiful. 'Patterns in the Rain" completes the story. It may not be his song but its a fine rendition.
Overall, this album is melody and sweetness and will remain with you at least 11 years after you first hear it.

Working Class Hero 26 Dec. 2007
By J. Holcombe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'll state right off, that I am not the biggest John Martyn fan. I bought his 2 CD box set after hearing this CD, and find that I don't often listen to it.

On the other hand, I first listened to this CD 12 or 13 years ago, and it remains a favorite, always in rotation. The sound of this CD is a unique blend of jazz, pop, folk and even soul. The melodies are beautiful, the lyrics insightful, cutting, moving and authentic. Martyn's voice is really one of a kind and so is the music. There is an honest, soulful, simplicity here that is summed up on the song "The River". His love for his daughter is deeply evident in "Look At The Girl". "Patterns in The Rain" is incredibly moving.

The albums I like the most are those that transport me somewhere: to "The River" by Martyn, to "Hergest Ridge" by Mike Oldfied. There is a distinct sense of place and time and space in Martyn's music and I enjoy the trip every time I hear this CD. An essential disc.
