John Martyn the genius at his best,
This review is from: John Martyn: Live At The BBC [DVD]  (DVD)
If you like John Martyn this is heaven. He is like a nerdy guy twitching and making silly remarks between songs - his tourette-like persona disappears as soon as the music starts - his vocals and guitar playing are just incredible - he is just at one with his music, which seems to come through him, from a higher place - he may not be the best lyricist - but the lyrics are good enough to convey the powerful emotion and you could never say his music doesn't come from the heart -
on the 80's bit he has a band - to talk about this as wise or unwise makes no sense - he will always do his own thing, what he feels like doing, as geniuses do.

NO, John Martyn may NOT have been the best lyricist - but he is definitely in the top one!
