Mr. Martyn's Ten Beauties

Juan Mobili
 
Solid Air by John Martyn
Solid Air by John Martyn
"Most likely his very best, which is not too little nor too easy to say given his glorious output. There's another, newer edition too."
Sunday's Child
Sunday's Child
"Gorgeous stuff, mostly acoustic except for some electric forays, both equally great. Danny Thompson adds thoghtful and unforgetable double-bass lines."
Bless the Weather

"Another top outing. His voice can take you places in your heart you may not know existed. Thompson bass seems psychically connected to Martyn's songs."
Inside Out

"To me, a twin album to Sunday's Child as far as quality, mood and musicianship. And that voice ..."
One World
One World
"One World is probably one of his most daring. Dense and evocative, more concerned with moods than melodies. Stunning its own right."

"1967 recording. The man is quite young, you can tell it by his voice. Pure Folk, the jazzy leanings not even a glimpse yet. Lovely, tender Folk."
Church With One Bell
Church With One Bell
"This the first and only album he dedicated entirely to covering other people's songs. After releasing several so-so albums, his amazing voice once again found material to churn into gold."
Grace & Danger
Grace & Danger
"A painful and moving diary of a break-up, if you will. It came out prior to One World, if you're interested in chronology."
Glasgow Walker

"His best of recent years (came out in '99). When you think he's done, he proves wrong again."
On the Cobbles

"Given the number of amazing albums he's put out (this list should make a case for it) this may not be his best. Still, quite a piece of work, and one of the best things to come in 2004."
