5.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't disappoint, 4 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: John Martyn: Live At The BBC [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
This DVD covers performances from 1975-82, when John Martyn was at his best, which is how I prefer to remember him. The performances are just so good: OK, I'm a fan. There is so much more to John Martyn than "May you never", although to see him singing that song from "The Old Grey Whistle Test" in 1973 is an intimate experience. No frills - solo guitar, voice and microphone. There are, in fact, three versions of this song on the DVD, and that's OK because it's 154 minutes long. Lots of solo stuff in a BBC studio and good live gigs as well; John sometimes playing with a band. The musicianship is outstanding, the picture and sound quality are excellent, considering that it dates from over 35 years ago. If you're my age, you'll remember and love it. If you're younger, John Martyn is one of those artists you ought to know about. His influence is still very much alive. I wish he were - I miss him.
