Whilst "Solid Air" is the undoubted Martyn meisterwerk this, the 1973 follow-up, is a stunning follow-on that sadly seems to have been forgotten. With more of a jazz, rather than folk/blues feel, sublime bass work from Danny Thompson and Martyn experimenting even more with echoplex and distortion effects through his acoustic guitar (echoing much of his live performances of the time) this seems in many ways a much more mature offering. His singing is on many tracks intentionally slurred or skat orientated, often utilising his voice as another layer of sound rather than just delivering lyrics. In addition to Thompson his "backing band" included the extended Traffic line-up of Stevie Winwood, Chris Wood and Bobby Keyes all of whom are used to fantastic effect on the ensemble pieces.The extended "Outside" is clearly heavily influenced by John Coltrane and he seems to acknowledge this with a mesmeric chanting of "Love Supreme..." on a later track...one assumes a nod to Coltrane's masterpiece. If you liked Solid Air and fancy something a little more challenging then this deserves a serious listening to....late at night with the lights down low.

14 reviews for Solid Air and only one so far for this album, kind of illustrates a point, I think ! Whilst Solid Air and One World are peerless, that's not to ignore what was released inbetween, nosireee. If anything this album contains some of John's finest songs and some completely dreamy instrumentals. Go on, give one a good home.

Almost a five star album. John Martyn's follow up to his seminal 'Solid Air' appears to have been lost amid the hype surrounded the aforementioned album and later greats such as 'One World' and 'Grace and Danger' but don't for a minute believe the lack of cult hype denotes a rare JM bummer. No Siree...this is an amazingly futuristic album which sounds as good today as it did on release in 1973.
John had certainly left the trad folk scene behind and despite offering a fuzzy guitar version of a traditional Scottish lament 'Eibhli Ghail Chiuin ni Chearbhail' to appease the old folkies, 'Inside Out' is very much in the distinctive jazzy/bluesy vein which has been the Surry/Glaswegian's stock in trade for nearly four decades. Powerful compositions delivered in the classic JM growl. Big bass lines...rasping drums and soaring sax solos compliment John's guitar and vocal contribution.
One of JM's best without a doubt !

Released within eight months of Solid Air, you can tell JM was on a roll...and indeed if you liked Solid Air, chances are you will love Inside Out too, as it ploughs a similar jazzy/folky/psychedelic furrow to it's predecessor...and (hurray!) Danny Thompson does the honours again on stand up bass.

It will always amaze me that Martyn has always been slightly marginalised in the music stakes. Many of his songs are timeless pieces that could and should be covered by lots of people, but the reality is quite different. Maybe it's because he stamped his personality so strongly on them...who knows, but Fine Lines, Ain't No Saint, Make No Mistake have got classic written right through them. This is another great, great album from the man. Some may argue it's not quite as flawless as Solid Air, but lovely languid smoky late nite listening just the same. Pukka.

John Martyn has given us brilliant music and the string of 70's albums Bless the weather/Solid air/Inside out/One world is particularly wonderful. "Bless the weather" has a wonderful atmosphere but is not uniformly strong, while "Solid air" (containing the all-eclipsing and glorious title track) has a wonderful collection of songs and is rightfully a great contender for the title of "best album". But it lacks the cohesive strength and freedom that "Inside out" has. "Inside out" explores a wide range of musical scopes and exudes optimism and confidence. There are no weak tracks at all, and the musicianship is (thankfully with the brilliant Danny Thompson still on board) great as usual. Follow-up "One world" and predecessor "Solid air" may have attracted more attention (being less "difficult"?) but "Inside out" is John Martyn's best and most adventurous album.

He was a genius of course, although perhaps "Inside Out" isn't as iconic as "solid Air" or "Grace and Danger' it still rates five stars. Far above any of his contemporaries, far and away the most innovative of musicians of his time, John Martyn has left a fabulous legacy and "Inside Out" is a great part of it. Lord only knows why this man wasn't a great star, possibly something to do with his somewhat self destructive nature I suppose. So thanks to Mary Malrooney for introducing his music to me all those decades ago!!! I've not stopped listening to him for nearly 40 years!

John's fifth solo album, released in 1973, this sublime collection marks the beginnings of his musical trajectory towards jazzier writing/performance and the use of his voice as a distinctive instrument to match his peerless guitar playing. The songs are bolstered by Danny Thompson's supreme double bass playing as well as by luminaries like Steve Winwood on keyboards and Chris Wood on saxophone.

First track 'Fine Lines' is a beautiful melodic song in John's inimitable folk-acoustic style, but the slur in the voice that will become so prevalent across this whole album and all future work has its incipient roots here. Third 'Ain't No Saint' signals the much more experimental writing too: a jazz-chant about Love [as John writes comically and always somewhat self-effacingly, as if his seriousness shouldn't be taken that seriously: 'love...love...love...love...tra la la...triddly dee dee'], the voice oozes this word over dancing acoustic riffs with tabla and other energetic percussion provided by Remi Kabaka.

Inverted title and fourth track 'Outside In' makes psychedelic use of the signature Echoplex that John perfected, especially when playing live. This song is gloriously expansive in its guitar range and with Thompson's bass dancing in and out of the groove. The saxophone puts in layers of slow romantic jazz with John's punchy bursts of more chanted love, it is love, guitar now echoing and looping its waterfalls of sweet chord sequences, until the voice growls and shouts out in ecstasy. John has spoken of the inspiration behind such a sound:

'I don't think I would have done some of the stuff on Inside Out if I hadn't heard 'Karma' ['Karma' by Pharoah Sanders, released in 1969].
