This review is from: The Island Years (Audio CD)
I had the momentary joy of logging on to Amazon MP3, late at night on my phone, and seeing that the wonderful John Martyn Island Collection was available for an amazingly low price. Stupidly, I didn't download it because I thought it too much for my phone to take without crashing. I thought that I'd be sensible to wait until morning and use my PC. Knowing what I now know, I am kicking myself.
I was there at his BBC 'Sight & Sound' Concert when he strolled in, about half an hour late, with a large spliff attached to the machine head of his guitar. I've attended many of his gigs before and after that...never saw a bad one! Wish that I had the money for the box set. Cheers John! wherever you are resting. We miss you and your wonderful music, you lairy minstrel. R.I.P.
