5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Old and Grey About this DVD!
It's been a very very long time coming but finally someone has got around to releasing Martyn's BBC TV appearances on DVD - WELL DONE UNIVERSAL!

3.0 out of 5 stars A glass half empty
John Martyn is without doubt one of the best singer songwriters to have ever emerged from the post Beatles era. However, whilst this DVD contains sufficient evidence of Martyn's brilliance in the 1970s OGWT shows , it also reveals his ability to let style overcome substance in the 1980s when he unwisely engaged rock bands to bolster his sound. For anyone who has ever been...

This review is from: John Martyn: Live At The BBC [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
John Martyn is without doubt one of the best singer songwriters to have ever emerged from the post Beatles era. However, whilst this DVD contains sufficient evidence of Martyn's brilliance in the 1970s OGWT shows , it also reveals his ability to let style overcome substance in the 1980s when he unwisely engaged rock bands to bolster his sound. For anyone who has ever been fond of the stripped down sound of John Martyn playing as if he meant every word then at least 40% of this DVD will become redundant. Fortunately, there's enough good stuff here to keep fans happy but I can't help thinking of how much better this DVD could have been.
