Listening to this album makes me really sad at the state he got into, drunk and crippled. Because the original cuts on this CD are truly superb. Amazing talent.
Great atmos, brilliant compositions and a very fine mix of acoustic and electric instruments. Martyn was an underrated electric guitar player actually; this is the album where he shows how good he was.
Big Muff is pure class - you can tell he was hanging out with Lee Perry (good for creativity if not for longevity).
But .... A Certain Surprise - is this the best song written by a British singer songwriter, ever? It's a classic. People should be doing covers of this brilliant song hundreds of years from now.
