You'll love this...
on 19 January 2005
...if you're a John Martyn fan. This is how a remastered album should be done. The original album on one disc and a second disc of out takes and five live tracks from the period. As good as the outakes are, the best part of disc 2 is the live tracks from a Regents Park in 1978. It's a shame we couldn't hsve the whole concert the music and sound quality is just fabulous. I wish I'd been there!
Have I convinced you yet? The original album still sounds as good as it ever did. Martyn cowrote one of the songs with Lee Perry and the reggae influence permeates the whole album while further expermentation of electronic effects is put to good use especially on the final track 'Small Hours'.
Also here one of John's greatest love songs, Couldn't Love You More.
Best played after midnight before or after listening to Martyn's Solid Air, another magnificent remaster.
I just hope we don't have to wait too long to see remastered versions of Bless The Weather, Inside Out and Sunday's Child.
