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 !
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.
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].Read more ›

Sublime. Musically John Martyn's best album. Chris Wood, Stevie Winwood and Danny Thompson's playing is superb.Published 21 months ago by Ian Rumboldt
Love the freeform elements to this album. Less structured and more improvised, you can hear the jazz influences throughout. It's becoming my new favourite John Martyn album.Published 23 months ago by Anne Maxwell
Some of his best material! Not quite Solid Air, but brilliant, anyway!Published on 18 Oct. 2014 by Rawtunes
