5.0 out of 5 stars Guaranteed pleasure!, 3 July 2009
For someone who appreciates the work of John Martyn, this DVD is a must. Starting from the late 70's with a set from the Old Grey Whistle Test and then Reading University. John Plays a stunning, mainly acoustic performance as a soloist and includes his witty banter with the audience.

Into 1981, Stirling University; John performs with his band and uses electric for this performance. There are Extra features with other great sessions with John, from The old Grey whistle test.

154 minutes of fantastic music, showing the great skill of John Martyn's playing, his witty humour and unique voice. What is lovely, is that it is filmed in such a way, that it feels as if you could be there in front row position. It has a personal, simplistic feel, and Truly mesmerizing to watch! The quality and sound is excellent. Beautifully put together. DTS surround sound.

If John Martyn's music and playing style interests you, than quite simply this DVD will not disappoint. It is a lovely keepsake to remember this great artist. I cannot think of any negatives for this DVD, other than i wish there could be more John Martyn performances available to buy to this quality and standard!
