Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Island Years (Audio CD)
An unquestionably fabulous collection of studio albums and rarities, very nicely packaged and presented. This set really does contain the cream of John Martyn's finest moments. But.....it doesn't exactly come cheap!
My main gripe is that most of his fans will already own many, if not all of the studio CDs. Therefore I'm somewhat confused as to why we have to pay so much to buy them again, just to get to the rare gems of previously unreleased splendour.
My other gripe is having bought the set at the original pre-release price (through Amazon), I am more than a little annoyed to see it being sold by Universal (on their website) for £129.99.
Sometimes you can't help but feel that you are being ripped off.
