Nothing Old and Grey About this DVD!
on 2 September 2006
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! This is a fantastic collection of Old Grey Whistle Test and Rock Goes To College appearances. The last BBC material was released in 1982 on Betamax video so you can see what I mean about 'not before time!' So whats on it, well here we go ;
The Old Grey Whistle Test, Collegiate Theatre, UCL, January 10th 1978 - May You Never, Small Hours, Certain Surprise, Couldn't Love You More and Big Muff.

An absolutely essential DVD for all John Martyn fans, the animated menu is superb, the content even better and artwork excellent - a very well presented package with quality sleeve and good liner notes. Yeah, I know it's sad but I enjoy reading them!
A fantastic value release at less than £10, so waht are you waiting for? BUY IT, you will not be diappointed!
