just wanted to say, contrary to another reviewers remarks, donovan does feature on this album.

this is by far my favourite john martyn album. recored when he was just 18 in 1968 - this is johns first album - and some say its a straight folk record - i however, deem it to be simple in theory and beautiful in practise. the gorgeous guitar tunings and slick but thoughtful guitar playing, accompanied by johns raw, melodic vocals make this a truely sublime album.

i'd recommend this album for anyone who likes the work of nick drake, bob dylan et al - ...actually, i'd recommend it to everyone.

it's amazing how many more wonderful albums john has made with his first being such a stonker.

enjoy :-)
