Apart from the jarring 3rd track (Sugar Lump), which I always skip, and shouldn't be included (as it spoils the album), this is a very enjoyable listen of gentle, relaxing tracks by a master craftsman. It does annoy me though that some tracks end by fading out, surely the weekest ending possible, but that's just a little fault. A very good album, well worth a fiver.

I have just discovered , with some surprise , that this appears to be my favourite John Martyn album . Solid Air , Road To Ruin and Stormbringer are all brilliant but this seems to be the one I find myself taking down from the shelf and sliding into the Marantz . All numbers are great and the skip button becomes redundant . John was still at that stage of his career where you could understand what he was singing about and the daft idea of his voice becoming a saxophone had not yet crossed his mind . He handles every song with great tenderness and even tries his hand at rock and roll with Sugar Lump . The highlight , however , is Glistening Glyndebourne an instrumental which shows an interest in Eastern forms . At it's best , 60s music was not afraid to experiment and this track compares favourably with East-West by the Butterfield Blues Band . I don't think he ever hit this kind of form again .

If you already own the original CD version of this album you might be wondering "should I buy this re-mastered version with extra tracks?". I would say yes, definitely, buy it. It really is worth having the extra tracks which are a little different from the album versions but not necessarily inferior. The single version of May You Never is....interesting! If the LP version had been released as a single it might have done better in the charts.

John Martyn cheerfully defied folk fascists and jazz purists to make music that sounded good to him. It sounds good to us too. Bless you John, wherever you are.

Without doubt, this is one of my favourite albums of all time! Head and Heart is simply amazing - voice, guitar, danny thompson (wow) and a bongo...but the sound is so full, the tune (all of them in fact) are beautiful etc... Need I go on? This album is like the more jazzy, thoughtful songs from Solid Air. Lost for words!

This is the beginning of the explosive John Martyn period whereby more experimental and innovative techniques were tried out, including the famous Echoplex on "Glistening Glyndebourne". There's plenty of acoustic stuff too, including the beautiful title track and the equally beautiful "Walk to the Water". Although there are some even better John Martyn albums, "Bless the Weather" is a worthwhile addition to the collection.

John Martyn was one of the most talented performers the UK ever produced and produced my favourite ever music. This isn't the best, but it's better than most by other people

John Martyn's music is uplifting and a pleasure to listen to. I just bought this to replace a cassette but it's great to be reacquainted with it.

Very good album of earlier material from Mr.Martyn. Tracks 6 and 8 being my favourites of the cd. Defiately worth a listen.
