Go on, you know you want to,
This review is from: Heaven and Earth (Audio CD)
C'mon all you sort-of-John-Martyn-fans out there. You know you've toyed with the idea of getting your hands on his last outing. Well, go on then. You've nothing to fear. It's not up there with Solid Air or One World, but it's pretty blinking good never-the-less. The voice is beyond mellow. The music self-assured - a journeyman knocking out tunes to stop you, scare you and make you smile - sometimes all at the same time. Two weeks in and my stand out songs are 'Could have told you...' and 'Willing to Work' - the closing seconds of the latter being further proof, if needed, that he never took any of it too seriously. One of a kind and sorely missed. God speed.
