5.0 out of 5 stars The King of Soul into Blues and Folk, 25 Sept. 2011
This review is from: The Church With One Bell (Audio CD)
This 1998 compilation is a mix of covers by John Martyn who really adds a new dimension in terms of his voice as an additional instrument.The depth to his expression in these songs is phenomenal. Hearing John Martyns earlier compositions in juxtaposition to these new encounters demonstrates how his voice has not only matured, but has I feel consciously and meticulously weaved into an intoxicating delivery.
Listen to "Excuse me Mister","The Sky is Crying" and "Glory Box" and you will know what I am saying here. The final track "Death don't have no mercy" is a rather haunting and poignant song now John Martyn is no longer with us. The first song "He's got all the whisky" is also quite a tongue-in-cheek delivery considering John's liking for the amber liquid.
For any John Martyn admirer this is a must.
