Yes the orignal versions of these songs are wonderful, but surely there's room for some new interpretations of these fantastic, skillfully written songs. I would hate to think someone who was thinking of buying this album as an introduction to John Martyn's music would miss out due to a two star review score!! Albeit less folky, this is an amazing collection of music, and if the man himself sees fit to try a different musical approach who are we to argue? I say buy it! along with every other album of his you can get your hands on! Sheer quality.

If you are a TRADITIONAL "John Martyn died in the wool, circa 1972 SOLID AIR man, yeh was'nt it great in the old hippy university days",then this is not the album for you, however if you are open minded and like JMs jazz/electric smokey raw new style then I urge you to buy this and discover a fantastic new take on the old classics.Oh and by the way I like the old style too, but just like in Ireland you'll never convince the the biggots!!
PS the first CD is my favorite

A collection of classic John Martyn songs laid to waste by incredibly lack-lustre arrangements and performances.
Seek out the original versions and and savour these tunes in all their glory.
John Martyn is still a great performer, and still produces great albums, but this is not one of them.

This is a very disappointing 2-CD set; get any or all of John Martyn's original recordings or live albums, but don't bother with this one. The style is boring and uniform from start to end, with wa-wa chorus in the background. What is sad is that the song Pascanel doesn't seem to be available on any other currently available John Martyn album.

last track of second CD is "damaged"; it is a not a superficial failure, but factory based. not a good purchase, after all.
