my favourite john martyn album,
This review is from: London Conversation (Audio CD)
this is by far my favourite john martyn album. recored when he was just 18 in 1968 - this is johns first album - and some say its a straight folk record - i however, deem it to be simple in theory and beautiful in practise. the gorgeous guitar tunings and slick but thoughtful guitar playing, accompanied by johns raw, melodic vocals make this a truely sublime album.
i'd recommend this album for anyone who likes the work of nick drake, bob dylan et al - ...actually, i'd recommend it to everyone.
it's amazing how many more wonderful albums john has made with his first being such a stonker.

Actually, his website says "John's debut album was recorded in mono and released in October 1967 when John was 20 years old."
